What was the Most Significant Personnel Change in Southern Gospel music’s history?
We started with 36 nominations. After two rounds of voting, only 4 remain. It’s time to pick the winner!
Voting Rules: You MUST submit a total of TWO votes. Your vote will NOT be counted if you submit more or less than two votes. Submit only one comment with your votes listed on the first line of that comment.
Voting ends at midnight (EDT) on Tuesday, August 22. In the event of a tie, we will have a run-off.
