Jason Ingram is the leading nominee heading into the ceremony with 12 nods—the most ever received in one awards season.

Among the other top nominees are Chris Tomlin, TobyMac, Jason Crab, and Francesca Battistelli. For a complete list click here.

The View’s Sherri Shepherd will host the event at the Fox Theatre, which is being taped to air on GMC on Easter Sunday, April 24 at 7 p.m. ET.

Set to perform are Kenny Rogers with Point of Grace, as well as Francesca Battistelli, Natalie Grant, Ernie Haase and Signature Sound, Kirk Franklin, Chris Tomlin, and more.

There will also be a pre-show event hosted by Jason Crabb with a performance by Guy Penrod.
