41st Annual Dove Awards


The biggest event in all of Christian music is currently in the planning stages. I'm talking about the Gospel Music Associations' 41st GMA Dove Awards! It will be held on Wednesday, April 21, 2010 at Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville Tennessee, as well as broadcasted live on the Gospel Music Channel Saturday, April 24th, 2010 from 8-10 PM EST. Although the final nominees won't be announced until February 18th, the hosts of the event have been. We will be watching Female Vocalist of the Year (2006-2009) Natalie Grant co-hosing with Bart Millard of MercyMe (also a Dove Award winner). In addition to the awards, there will be live performances from Casting Crowns, TobyMac, Natalie Grant, Jason Crabb, MercyMe, plus many more artists not yet announced! Natalie Grant is privileged to have the chance to hose the 41st Annual Dove Awards: ""Hosting the GMA Dove Awards is a real honor. I have always been a fan of Christian music so I consider it a tremendous privilege to help shine a brighter spotlight on the message of this life-changing music, and the artists who create it. I love that it's not a night of competition, but an evening of giving honor and celebrating one another. It's really more like a family gathering that I look forward to every year." Tickets are open to the GMA Members on Monday, January 4th starting 10 AM, but will also go on sale to the public January 19th (by calling 1-800-733-6779). Tickets range from $25-200.

  1. After all these years of the Dove Awards, it STILL steams me that the idiot secular music industry refuses to recognize outstanding musicians because of their religion. GRRRRR
