Plum Coulee born and raised musician and world-renowned violinist Rosemary Siemens has been nominated for six Gospel Music Association Covenant Awards.

Currently on a 24 concert tour across 11 U.S. states, Siemens said the nominations are a huge honour.

However, she's most excited about the nod for Best Gospel Song of the Year for "Bring Back the Hymns."  

"Many people know that's a big thing on my heart because I'm trying to bring hymns back to churches," said Siemens. "And the nomination for Best Country and Gospel Album,' as well.  They're all amazing, but those are ones that are really close to my heart because it puts what's on my heart on a bigger platform."

Siemens explained it's stories like one shared after a recent concert in Missouri that sums up success for her.  

"We had a woman come up to us after one of the shows and she was weeping," said Siemens, adding the woman shared how her sister, who's was addicted to opioids and whose husband had died by suicide, heard the song "Have little Faith," which she said helped change the direction of her life.

Siemens has also been nominated alongside Buddy Spicher for Instrumental Song of the Year for "Rosemary and Buddy's Bluegrass Jam,"  Folk Album of the Year for "Plum Coulee, my Home" featuring The Sweet Sound Revival, as well as Album of the Year. The album is also up for CD/DVD Artwork Design and Producer of the Year.

The Covenant Awards will be handed out in Edmonton in January.
