Daywind Music Publishing recently celebrated two BMI airplay awards at the annual BMI Christian Music Awards held in Nashville, TN. The songs were “Last Night,” written by Marcia Henry (Christian Taylor Music/Marcia Henry Music) and recorded by Karen Peck and New River (Daywind Records), and “I've Been Changed” written by Earl Galloway and Jeff Steele (Christian Taylor Music/OSMR Songs/Sunset Gallery Music), and recorded by Legacy Five (Daywind Records).
