Casting Crowns, Lauren Daigle Among 46th Annual Dove Awards Performers

unnamedThe Gospel Music Association (GMA) has revealed its slate of performers and presenters for the 46th Annual GMA Dove Awards. Casting Crowns, Kirk Franklin, Lauren Daigle and Danny Gokey are set to perform. Bill Gaither, Blanca, Michael W. Smith and Michelle Williams will present top honors as they join recently announced co-hosts Erica Campbell and Sadie Robertson for Gospel and Christian music’s biggest night of the year.

The GMA Dove Awards will take place at Allen Arena at Lipscomb University on Tuesday, Oct. 13, 2015 and will air on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) on Sunday, Oct. 18, 2015.

Fans will also get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to join a choir supporting Casting Crowns on stage. “We are so excited to bring this unique experience to our fans,” shares GMA Executive Director Jackie Patillo. “This will be a memory that people can carry with them throughout their lives, and it gives us an opportunity to engage fans in the Dove Awards experience!”

The choir is part of the Dove VIP Experience where fans have the opportunity to enjoy behind-the-scenes excitement of the show through Selfie Row (meet and greet), backstage tour, access to the PreTelecast and dinner before hitting the awards show.
