The Creekside Gospel Music Convention was held in Pigeon Forge, TN in October and a highlight of the annual event is the presentation of the Diamond Awards (directed by Vonda Armstrong). This year’s host was KWFC’s Dave Taylor. Some of the Diamond Award recipients were Michael Combs, Karen Peck and New River, Triumphant, Tonja Rose, Eagle’s Wings, and Living Legend Jeanette Cooke.
Tonja Rose received 2 Diamond Awards for ‘Gospel Music Today Video/DVD of the Year’ and ‘Christian Country Song of the Year’. Both awards were for the song, “Little Talk With Jesus” (written by Tonja Rose and Ken Harrell). The song was a Top 10 radio charting single on both the Singing News Bluegrass Gospel Top 10 and the SGN Scoops Bluegrass charts.
This brings Tonja’s Diamond Award count to a total of 6 awards with a total of 19 nominations.
