Creekside Gospel Music Convention Welcomes The Hinson Family!


Creekside GMC is getting ever closer and we have a lot of exciting news to share this month, so I will get right to it! First of all, just a reminder that Creekside tickets are free but must be reserved today. Please make your plans to join us in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee on November 2nd through 5th at the Smoky Mountain Convention Center. Check out the Creekside website and Facebook page for more information (links below).
We have already announced that many of our Gospel music friends are returning, as well as some new artists. You know you will enjoy the music of The Freemans, the award-winning family group who are much loved by our Creekside audience. Other wonderful artists on the schedule include Mark209, the Pine Ridge Boys, Jordan’s Bridge, the Hoskins Family, 11th Hour, the Williamsons, the Guardians, and many more.
One of the newest artists to be added to the Creekside program are the Hinson Family! SGN Scoops introduced our readers to Weston, Christy and Jordan Hinson back in March of 2014, and their sound is being embraced across the country. With more than a hint of father Kenny Hinson’s unmistakable flavor, plus added touches of Bluegrass and Soul music, the Hinson Family’s music will touch your heart.
Creekside Gospel Music Convention begins on Monday night with the Lou Hildreth Honors. Each year, Lou salutes a member of the Southern Gospel Music industry for their contributions to our music and our world. Stay tuned to this column to find out whom Lou will honor for 2015. Don’t miss it!
Also on Monday night, Creekside Gospel Music Convention welcomes the return of one of last year's favorite events, Midnight Prayer. Fans and artists will gather together after the concerts before heading to sleep. The services feature prayer, music and fellowship. Everyone so enjoyed these services last year that Creekside is bringing them back in 2015!

Tuesday we begin daily showcases that will fill the halls of the Smoky Mountain Convention Center with music around the clock. We are thrilled to announce that Tuesday and Thursday, Creekside presents concerts with your hosts Vonda Easley and Ava Kasich. These ladies will be bringing in special guest artists like Ascension Quartet, Alliance Quartet, Exodus, John Lanier, Malachi, Billy Hodges, and others. Wednesday’s showcase will feature the artists from Chapel Valley with your hosts, the Hyssongs. There are many more surprises to come. Check the website for more information.
We are excited to welcome back WATC Channel 57, Atlanta, Georgia on Monday and Tuesday nights. They will join us to do a live taping of the evening concerts.

We outline who is eligible for each award and also tell you who the 2014 winner was for that category.

In this way, the field of nominees will be narrowed to 10, voted on by fans once more and then narrowed to five. This final list of five will then be voted on by fans to find the one winner for each award.
