Oklahoman Becky Wright Nominated With Carrie Underwood, Kenny Chesney, Dottie Rambo, For Music Awards

KNGR King Country Radio (Daingerfield, TX) Announces Nominees for 2008 FAN APPRECIATION AWARDS, including 2006 ‘Duo of the Year’ Winner, Becky Wright

Becky Wright, inspirational singer/songwriter from northeast Oklahoma, is named among such gospel and country music icons as Dottie Rambo, Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson, Dolly Parton, Carrie Underwood, Susie Luchsinger, Ricky Skaggs, Martina McBride, and others for several music awards. The public is urged to cast their votes for this first round BEFORE Jan. 18th, by going to www.kingcountryagapefest.com and following the link to VOTE (free). Voters may return for the Semi-final Voting Round after Jan. 18th to vote for the Top 5 in each category. The winners will be announced at the 8th Annual Agape Fest Fan Appreciation Awards Show, to be held Sat. May 31st in Jefferson, TX.

The Agape Fest, which originally began in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metro area several years ago before moving to east Texas, will host over 100 Christian Country, Gospel, Contemporary, Inspirational, and Positive Country artists for four days of live performances around the historic city of Jefferson, TX (www.jefferson-texas.com). Artist workshops, a talent competition, and family-friendly day and nightly entertainment will highlight the week. Artists who wish to participate in the festival and/or talent competition, and interested fans, may visit www.kingcountryagapefest.com for more information. Vendors may call KNGR Radio (www.kingcountry.org ) at (903) 645-4325 for pricing & booth availability.

FREE to the public, the festival is expected to draw in excess of 10,000 visitors and gospel and country music fans from May 28th-June 1st, 2008. The event culminates in the Awards Show on Saturday, which will be later broadcast on television. The vision of the King Country Agape Fest is "to spread the AGAPE (unconditional) love of Jesus around the world, and to support the artists in gospel and country music who share in that mission."

Becky Wright won "Duo of the Year" with Tommy Brandt in 2006 (for “Child of My Heart”), and was a Top 5 Finalist for the Female Horizon Award in 2006 & 2007. She would appreciate your consideration for the following categories in which she has been nominated for 2008:

Female Vocalist of the Year
Female Horizon Award
Female Songwriter of the Year
Favorite Christian Country Song: "Billy's Train"
Award of Outstanding Achievement

Wright is most noted for her adoption song, “Child of My Heart”, and performs around the country at various public and private adoption events. In November (National Adoption Month), she performed for the State of Oklahoma, Hope Ministries, and Tarrant County (Ft. Worth), Texas. February 9th, 2008, Wright will perform for the Premiere of the NW Arkansas Adoption Coalition near Fayetteville, AR, and in September for the annual conference of ATTACH.org in Charlotte, NC.

Wright’s current single, “Billy’s Train”, has catapulted up music charts, landing at #27 in the December issue of Power Source Magazine (Top 100 Christian Country Songs), and receiving rave reviews from radio D.J’s, fans, and Christian Music Weekly. It is the second release from her 2006 CD, “No Denying”, produced by Grammy & Dove Award-winning Dave Moody, owner of Lamon Records in Charlotte, NC. Becky is a Staff Missionary of Artists in Christian Testimony, Intl, a non-profit organization based in Nashville, TN. She is also a member of Just Plain Folks (www.jpfolks.com), a songwriter site with over 40,000 members worldwide.

Wright’s 2008 Concert Tour includes churches, festivals, coffeehouses, and more, and is expanding through the Midwest USA, New England, and Canada. Scheduling information is available through the official website, www.beckywrightsongs.com . [High resolution photo link: http://www.computercentralok.us/subsite2/gallery.htm ]

Congratulations on all of your nominations, Becky!!!

As an independent, it's very exciting to receive accolades alongside all those established stars that have the benefit of the industry's promotional machine pushing them.

It speaks volumes for your accomplishments!!!

Cheers and the best of luck to you!

Good for you Becky! It was great to finally get over to Kansas this year and I look forward to making it to Oklahoma in 2008 or 2009 as well.
