It’s all eyes on Lauren Daigle at this year’s GMA Dove Awards, with six nominations including Artist of the Year. But she isn’t the only one to have cleaned up on nominations in the 47th Annual Dove Awards.
Big guns, such as Hillsong UNITED and Chris Tomlin, garnered five nominations each. Anthony Brown, Jonathan McReynolds, Kirk Franklin and Tasha Cobbs tally four nods each, whilst songwriter Jason Ingram scores seven nods, including “Song of the Year. To see the full list of nominees, visit the Dove Awards website.
It’s great to see Travis Greene in the category for New Artist of the Year as he had a phenomenal 2015. The hip-hop category looks almost predictable, with artists who we would consider giants in the game. We were surprised that William McDowell wasn’t nominated in the Worship Album of the Year category, with his live recorded album ‘Sounds of Revival’ but hey, maybe next time.
The GMA Dove Awards celebrate the contributions of artists from every style of Christian/gospel music. Nominees are determined by over 1,500 professional members, and winners will be voted on by the entire GMA membership of nearly 2,500.
TV channel TBN will exclusively air the Awards show on Sunday 16th October, so watch out for that.
