I have been so blessed with a bunch of new and exciting things lately. I think I mentioned some time ago about becoming a member of the Tennessee Country & Gospel Music Association. What an awesome group with an awesome President, Alisa Asbury. She is a busy lady, a talented singer and entertainer herself, owner of Sweet Southern Entertainment and has taken on the job of being President of both Georgia and Tennessee Chapters. She put together a great Music Awards Show on December 3rd for both TCGMA and GCGMA chapters in Dalton, Georgia. What a show! What a competition! What an honor to be a part of this organization of talented singers!
It was an honor to be nominated and awarded:
CD of the Year
Songwriter of the Year
Most Promising Entertainer of the Year
in the New Country Category!!
Before the awards, we were entertained by many talented members with music covering all the categories ... Traditional Country, New Country, New Gospel, Traditional Gospel.. The Old Time Gospel groups were wonderful!
It was a festive night and Miss Lisa outdid herself with the decorations, displays and her selection of the "headliner" to entertain after the awards.
The week was finished off with a great showcase Friday evening with my fellow songwriter, Matt Morrow at the Coffee Tree, then of course back to "the Tree" on Saturday night for open mic to sing and hang out with my friends.
I appreciate everyone's support and hope you will visit me on Reverbnation/MaryJustice and LIKE MaryJustice Music on Facebook and subscribe to my YouTube Channel ... oh, yeah don't forget twitter! I've had a wonderful year and am looking forward to some new exciting projects coming up in 2012 including the NACMAI Music Awards in March. Thank you for you kindness, good wishes and encouragement in helping me "Follow My Dream" .... I give thanks and all the credit to you, my Lord Jesus!
