Cheryl Jackson Wilds

        We are sorry to report the death of one of our faithful USAGEM members - Cheryl Jackson Wilds, who died on New Year's Day, 2015.  Cheryl was known for her outstanding comedic and singing abilities, including her impersonation of Minnie Pearl.  She was the winner of the USAGEM Christian Comedian of the Year Award and was a favorite entertainer among the organization's members.

But, above all, Cheryl loved the Lord and performed for His glory.  She was a shining example of Christ's love and forgiveness.  She is already missed by her USAGEM family; but, we know the Lord is getting a few more laughs in Glory with Cheryl in His presence.
  Two memorial services celebrating the life of Cheryl Jackson Wilds will be held. The first of which will be at the Loretto First Baptist Church in Loretto, TN on January 18 at 2:00pm. The second service will be held at The Fontanel in Whites Creek, TN on January 20 at 6:00 p.m. 

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Gilda's Club Nashville, a cancer support group that assisted Cheryl during her battle with breast cancer. Donations can be made at

11th Annual Convention & Awards Show

Music was in the air as The 11th Annual USAGEM Banquet & Awards was underway on Saturday November 22, 2014.  The show was held in the luxurious Cumberland Ballroom at the Opryland Marriott Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee.  The show began immediately following the banquet, which started at 6:00 PM.

Mending Fences, a group formed from the band of the Nashville Cowboy Church, opened the program and set the tone for the evening.  They performed a Paul Overstreet penned song, “God Is Good All The Time”.
