- Several artists attended the GVB/EHSS showcase (Daniel Riley, Libbi Stuffle, et al) and all said the showcase was spectacular. Other bloggers and attendees weren’t quite as impressed.
- I discovered that enLighten is broadcasting from the NQC live in the evenings, interspersing mainstage performances with interviews. I heard the Inspirations set, and as others mentioned, the acappella song they sang was particularly good. They have a much different vocal sound with Campbell, Ragan, and Hosterman. Solid all the way around.
- Liberty Quartet had a full set tonight instead of the one song appearance that they made a couple years ago. Keith Waggoner’s feature song was noted as particularly good.
- Jeff and Sheri had a notable set as well. In addition to Morgan, Madison Easter joined in on some harmony vocals as well tonight, which one twitter comment said was a throwback to their sound with Rabbit.
- Another show of solidarity tonight between Scott Fowler and Josh Cobb. I’m glad to see this, as it really makes both guys look good. Cobb and Fowler shared an embrace at center stage after their groups had been part of a larger singalong of “Boundless Love”, where more than one person praised Cobb’s vocals.
- Buzz of the Night Award: Speaking of Gold City, they debuted two songs off their soon to be released mainline CD. One was an unnnamed cover of an old Dixie Hummingbird tune, “It Won’t Be Long”, and the other was Josh Cobb singing “I Stand Redeemed.” Both went over extremely well, with “Redeemed” drawing the crowd to its feet.
