The 48th Annual Dove Awards honored some of the biggest names in Christian music and proved to be a big night for veteran artists in the genre.
From MercyMe to CeCe Winans and Reba McEntire, Christian music artists who have been in the industry for decades received top honors on Tuesday evening. The Dove Awards, hosted by Kari Jobe and Tasha Cobb Leonard, was held at David Lipscomb University’s Allen Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.
MercyMe, the Contemporary Christian Music band which has been making music since the early ’90s, won big at the show with awards for “Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year,” “Artist of the Year,” and frontman Bart Millard’s “Songwriter of the Year.”
The group took to social media to express their gratitude for receiving top honors
CeCe Winans received Dove Award honors for “Contemporary Gospel/Urban Album of the Year” and “Gospel Artist of the Year” after taking a nine-year hiatus from the industry. After over 30 years in the industry, Winans showcased her humility by recognizing her son, Alvin Love III, who produced a revamped sound for the singer with her latest record, Let Them Fall in Love.
