The 2nd  Annual NQC Music Awards were held Friday, September 13, 2013. Jeff Easter and Kevin Williams were the jovial co-hosts of the program, providing lots of laughs, and the entertainment was also top-notch, with some of Southern Gospel's best artists and groups taking the stage. The show paid tribute to the year's best songs with performances from each Song of the Year nominee.

Through the NQC "Free Friday" campaign featuring a free webcast of the day's events, this year's awards show reached fans in 26 different countries.

Most of the award winners were determined by popular fan vote, with five categories being decided by industry members. The National Quartet Convention is grateful to the loyal voting base for their involvement throughout the process.

And without further ado, here's the list of winners! Congratulations to everyone!
