Award winning guitarist and songwriter Dwayne Friend, who presently lives in Monett, received the President's Award from the International Country Gospel Music Association's Missouri chapter recently in West Plains. Friend was asked to attend the meeting as a presenter and was surprised to receive the honor. Friend is the winner of two Dove Awards, the highest honor in gospel music, and said the new trophy is one of the prettiest he has. Friend performed at last year's Kings Prairie benefit concert and will return to accompany Al Brumley Jr. at this year's concert on Saturday to accompany Al Brumley Jr. in the music of Albert E. Brumley. The concert begins at 6 p.m. at the historic Kings Prairie school, four miles southeast of Monett. [Times Photo by Murray Bishoff]
