Tim Livingston has been voted by the members of the International Country Gospel Music Association as 2012 Songwriter of the year. Diamond Mill Music is extremely proud of Tim for the hard work he put into co-writing 8 of the 12 songs on his brand new CD “Here’s A Miracle.” Upon winning the award Tim said, “”I want to first thank God for giving us something to sing and write about, the greatest story every told, Jesus. I am honored to have been nominated by the ICGMA for Male Horizon and Song of the Year and I am humbled to be this years recipient of the ICGMA Gold Cross award for Songwriter of the Year. I want to thank my Dad, Norman Livingston that is in Heaven that taught me everything I know. And my Mom, Velma Livingston back home in Dayton, Ohio for always supporting me. All the Radio Stations for playing me, and my Record Promoter Perry Edge and Double E. And my Producer, Ron Short”
Meanwhile the song “Here’s A Miracle” continues it’s climb up the charts reaching a wide audience in both the Country Gospel and Southern Gospel music fans across America. The Christian Voice Country Gospel Chart has “Miracle” at #35. Southern Gospel listeners and radio stations have now helped the song debut at #73 in the Christian Voice Chart and also debut at #80 in the Singing News September Chart. Songwriting Legend Larry Petree, writer of “Here’s A Miracle,” recently submitted his comments on both the song and the CD: “Tim Livingston has been able to accomplish what is nearly impossible. He has captured the emotions that I felt when I wrote the song, “Here’s A Miracle”, which is on the national charts and is nominated Song of the year by the ICGMA.
I have written many charting songs, but few have been able to capture and express my emotions. I am not sure how, but Brother Tim created a very personal version of this song, and I suspect Brother Tim has had a broken heart at some point in his life. He pours his heart out.
This is very very uncommon for me, but I highly recommend that you secure a copy of this new CD, by Tim Livingston, of the same title, “Here’s a miracle. Contact Ron Short,(of Diamond Mill Music). Do this for me, and do this for you. I promise you, this song and this project will be a great blessing to your soul.
One of the most outstanding things is, Tim pays royalties and even paid in advance. That is very uncommon. And it helped pay half of my electric bill. Also, Brother Tim is nominated for several awards, yet because I wrote his single, he has openly expressed his desire to share his success with me, by giving me open and public credit for writing his charting song. I admire him.
Tim Livingston is the son of the late and great Norm Livingston, a legend in Ohio, who was a bible preacher and operated a Gospel music radio station and promoted gospel concerts for years.
Contact Ron Short now, and order a copy of this CD project.” – Larry Petree
