BMI’s Trailblazers of Gospel Music Awards Luncheon in Nashville, Tenn. is shaping up rather nicely.
This year, the U.S. music rights organization will recognize gospel luminaries Edwin Hawkins, Lady Tramaine Hawkins and Kurt Carr for its 14th annual celebration during the Stellar Awards weekend.
Gospel stars CeCe Winans and Donnie McClurkin have been announced as the hosts for the coveted event.
Many liken BMI’s Trailblazers Awards to Clive Davis’ infamous pre-Grammy dinner and rightfully so, as the annual luncheon held the Friday before the Stellar Awards in Nashville, Tenn., is the weekend’s hardest ticket to land.
The invite-only affair attracts gospel music’s top artists, songwriters, and a who’s who of industry executives and influencers.
BMI’s Trailblazers of Gospel Music Awards Luncheon honored Kirk Franklin and Hezekiah Walker at their 2012 ceremony.
