"Gerry House has been entertaining thousands of listeners in the Nashville area for 30 years," said NAB Executive Vice President of Radio John David. "We look forward to honoring Gerry for his long list of accomplishments, which includes his morning program that's leaving WSIX this December after a long and successful run."
House has released two country/comedy albums, titled The Cheater's Telethon and Bull in 1990 and 1992, respectively. A Country Music Association (CMA) and Academy Of Country Music (ACM) award-winning American radio personality, House currently entertains Nashville listeners on the morning show "Gerry House and the House Foundation" on WSIX-FM Nashville. In addition to hosting several nationally syndicated radio shows, including "Countryline USA," "America's Number Ones" and "The Saturday Night House Party," House has had a long and successful career as a songwriter, creating songs for George Strait, Reba McEntire, LeAnn Rimes and Pam Tillis. He has also had his songs recorded by Brad Paisley, Randy Travis, Trace Adkins, Mark Collie, Clint Black, Neal McCoy and The Oak Ridge Boys, among others.
House joined WSIX-AM Nashville in 1975 and later transitioned to WSIX-FM, where the morning show "Gerry House and the House Foundation" was established. House held positions at WSM-AM Nashville and KLAC-AM Los Angeles before returning to WSIX-FM to continue his popular morning program. House was inducted into the Country Music DJ Hall of Fame in 2009, and is a seven-time winner of Billboard's Radio Personality of the Year award.
