The Singing News Fan Awards was held this afternoon in Dollywood. And for the first time in a few years, there were a couple of surprises.
I love that Libbi Perry Stuffle took home the Favorite Female Vocalist of the Year. She's an incredible deserving vocalist, but this year she's also proven what a strong woman of faith she is. I love that she was honored today with the year they have had.
I was also hoping that the Perrys would take home the award for favorite album. To me, it was the best of last year.
As far as Song of the Year goes, while I like "I Got a Hold of God This Morning," I was kinda pulling for either "All Is Well" or "I Want to Be That Man."
It was another big year for both Collingsworth Family and the Booth Brothers. Very deserving!
Any thoughts on this year's winners?
