His current single “I Need Your Glory” is riding at the #1 spot on the Billboard Gospel Songs Chart, and he is known for the hit song “Rain On Us“, the title track off of the 2009 “Rain On Us” recording. Earnest Pugh is nominated in four categories for the 2012 Stellar Awards nominations, which is an amazing accomplishment. Gospelflava.com caught up with Earnest Pugh to talk a little about his nominations and what he enjoys about the Stellar Awards Weekend.

Gospelflava.com: You are nominated for “Artist of the Year“, which covers an array of artists in the Gospel genre. How do you feel about being recognized?

Earnest Pugh: To be nominated as “Artist of The Year” is an honor that is beyond mere words. I respect the accomplishments and status of each one of my fellow nominees, and it’s a shock to me to be named among such great artists. Only God could have opened this door and placed me on this platform. I am humbled.

Gospelflava.com: You are also nominated for “Praise&Worship CD of the Year“. Were you expecting that nomination? Do you believe that your goal while recording “Earnestly Yours” was to create a “praise & worship” themed sound?

Earnest Pugh: Praise & worship is very near and dear to my heart, so with every CD I am sure to record music that can be ministered by praise teams on a weekly basis.

Gospelflava.com: What do you enjoy most about the Stellar Awards Weekend?

Earnest Pugh: The thing that I enjoy most is seeing my peers come together and do what we do. Iron sharpens iron, so I always leave empowered to go higher and dig deeper as an artist.

You can check out Earnest’s new digital Thanksgiving EP “A Thankful Celebration” at your music media outlets.
