West Texas Christian band,“Surrendered” was honored with the Golden Heart “International Band of the Year” award at the Country Gospel Music Association (CGMA) International Convention held in Branson, Missouri on October 28. The band previously had received the Silver Heart “Central USA Division Band of the Year” award in Bartlesville, Oklahoma in July, which advanced them to the International level. The CGMA International Award nominees were singers, instrumentalists, bands, comedians, reciters, signing interpreters, yodelers, and whistlers from the five CGMA divisions, including the Western USA, Central USA, Eastern USA, Canadian, and The Philippines Divisions.

“Surrendered” is a 5-member band that is dedicated to bringing glory to the Lord Jesus Christ with their God-given musical abilities. Karen Stoker is manager, lead singer, and keyboard player; Ronny Green plays guitar; former Tahoka resident Rickey Green plays guitar; Jeff Smith plays drums and sings backup; and Brent Knox plays bass guitar and sings backup. Each member has a special talent to bring to the group that says they were united together by God to do what they do. In the short time they have been together, Surrendered members have written 17 original songs, and have several more in progress. In response to the comments from people about the talents of the band,“Surrendered” says “It’s not that we’re so good, it’s that GOD is so good!”

“Surrendered” performed the praise and worship music at the N.A.S chapel service in Tahoka in July, at the South Plains Fair free concert stage in September, and scheduled to perform in Turkey, Texas on Saturday, November 3 @ 7pm in the Gem Theater.

“Surrendered” available for special music for churches, family reunions, festivals, etc. on a love-offering/honorarium basis.
