Dove Award Nominees 2014

The Dove Award nominees were announced yesterday morning. The Dove Awards will be in Nashville at Lipscomb University on Tuesday, Oct. 7. Artists from all genres within Christian music helped announce nominees yesterday including Karen Peck Gooch, Wayne Haun and Gordon Mote.

Southern Gospel was well represented. I would have liked some representation in the overall Artist of the Year category, but still there are several notable nominations. I was glad to see the Cathedral Family Reunion project pick up a couple of nominations. Wayne Haun gathered 17 nominations including Producer of the Year. Musicscribe also has a great post about Brian Free and Assurance's nomination for "Say Amen." I'm predicting this could be a big year for them! StowTown Records has really come out strong with several of their artists nominated.
