Stacie Orrico has enraged the organisers of an Australian music festival by cancelling her tour of the country.
The STUCK singer was due to headline the Australian Gospel Music Festival (AGMF) in April (07), but has postponed her Southern hemisphere dates and performance at the event in Toowoobma, southern Queensland.
Organisers hope to find a replacement, but are not confident they will be able to secure someone of Orrico's standing.
ISAAC MOODY, president of the AGMF says, "We're working very hard to see who we may be able to get in to fill the shoes of Stacie.
"We do have some leads at the moment, but at this late stage it's a bit of an effort and we're not 100 per cent confident we'll be able to replace Stacie just with one artist.
"So we're working on quite a number of artists who'll be able to fill her shoes really well."
MercyMe claimed four of the top prizes, including Artist of The Year, Group of The Year, Song of The Year and Pop/Contemporary Song of The Year (both for WORD OF GOD SPEAK).
Switchfoot frontman JONATHAN FOREMAN took home the most awards - his group won Rock Song of The Year for AMMUNITION and Rock/Contemporary Song for MEANT TO LIVE, while their album THE BEAUTIFUL LETDOWN won Rock/Contemporary Album, and Foreman's songwriting and production credits on the album earned him extra awards.
