Dove Nominations Announced


Nominations were announced recently for the 37th Annual GMA Music Awards (The Dove Awards) by the Gospel Music Association (GMA) with several new artists leading the pack.

Kirk Franklin and Rebecca St. James, hosts for the event, both of whom earned Dove nominations, announced their fellow nominnees.

The GMA Music Awards show will take place on April 5, 2006 at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville. The awards show will then be televised in national syndication April 15 to May 21, 2006.

Artist of the Year nominee Chris Tomlin and Group of the Year nominee David Crowder Band lead the field of nominees with nine nods and six nominations respectively, proving modern praise & worship music is still going strong.

Female Vocalists of the Year nominees Natalie Grant and Joy Williams helped to bring women back to the top of the Dove nominees with six each, while rock band Relient K also earned six nods thanks in part to its cross-over success.

Switchfoot, Jeremy Camp, Casting Crowns, Crabb Family and Israel Houghton who were 2005s biggest Dove Award winners, returned with five nominations. BarlowGirl and Third Day rounded out the list of artists with five nods a piece.


American Idol finalists continue to make their mark on the GMA Music Award nominations; this year's winner Carrie Underwood makes her Dove nominations debut with a vote for Country Recorded Song for her hit, "Jesus Take the Wheel" while former finalists George Huff and Clay Aiken grab their own nominations.

Awards will be handed out in 42 categories. The Songwriter of the Year nominees will be revealed, along with the winner, at the GMA Music Awards.
