Big NQC announcement?
I’m hearing that we might expect a big announcement from NQC about an “arrangement” the convention has reached with two major SG artists for 2008 whose recent absence at NQC has been conspicuous. That’s all I got, and it could turn out to be a bust, but I guess we’ll see. Stay tuned.
Update: our crack team of investigative interns has been hot on the trail of this one and feels fairly certain that Gaither is, as you probably assumed, the big name in question. What the arrangement will be remains, of course, to be seen.
Later update: and it’s official. Gaither fills Thursday night gap left by Fan Awards move to Saturday. Assuming this is part of a grander strategy to keep people around for the full week, I guess this means NQC thinks the Fan Awards are more popular than Gaither, which seems doubtful to me. But no matter. This is obviously good news. Not sure who had to do what and how much crow-eating, peace-making, or other detente was involved, but kudos are in order all around, esp to Gaither, who as Edie notes in comments, shows some first-rate class in letter the past go.Email this Post
