THE ILLINOIS COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION'S
1993 "ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR" &
1991 "FEMALE VOCALIST OF THE YEAR"
AND 2007 RECIPIENT OF THE "PIONEER" AWARD

I'm little but I'm loud!Singing with Grandma in church at age four... starring on her own radio show at eleven... a onetime "Little Miss Sunbeam Bread" and performer on the "Corn Belt Country Style" TV program ... featured performer on the Illinois Country Opry Show ... appearing on the Grand Ole Opry at seventeen ... later a regular on the New Salem and Nashville Sound country oprys ... Pam Gilbert has long been a fan favorite.

Her powerful voice, dynamic stage presence and captivating personality made Pam a guaranteed draw at midwest country music shows for many years. During the 1970's, Pam seasoned her talent, appearing on stage with such greats as Dolly Parton, Marty Robbins, Loretta Lynn, Barbara Mandrell, Merle Haggard, The Oak Ridge Boys, Roy Clark, Mel Tillis, Bill Anderson, Billy "Crash" Craddock and many others at Petersburg's Illinois Country Opry.

In the following years, Pam raised a family while performing guest spots on local opry shows and appearing as a regular on the New Salem Country Opry in Petersburg and the Nashville Sound Country Opry in Mason City, Illinois. She also made time to act as a cheerleading coach at PORTA High School, and to take up a part-time career as a dental assistant. And as always, she takes great pride in maintaining a beautifully decorated home. Along the way, Pam has also garnered the praise of Illinois Country Music Association fans, winning the "Female Vocalist of the Year" award in 1991, and in 1993 the I.C.M.A. "Entertainer of the Year" trophy.

Pam was deeply touched and honored to receive the Illinois Country Music Association's "Pioneer Award" at their annual Award Show on June 24, 2007. Recognized for her career as one of Illinois' most entertaining country music stars, Pam joins such names as Patsy Montana, Billy Grammer, "Uncle" Johnny Barton, and her own father, Chet Gilbert, as a Hall of Fame personality.

Although cutting back on appearances the last couple of years, Pam has kept plenty busy with children, stepchildren and now grandchildren. But, the musical future is still being written for this young lady!
