July 30, 2015 the Inspirational Country Music Association announced the nominees in the first round of voting for the 2015 Inspirational Country Music Awards to be held in October 2015. Stephen was voted into the Top 10 Music Evangelist of the Year category -- a complete surprise! Last year, he was in the Top 10 New Artist of the Year, but did not make it to the final round. 2014 was his first year as a member of the Nashville association. He's very honored to be voted into the Music Evangelist category by the members. What an unexpected blessing!
