“Congratulations to all of this year’s Dove Award nominees!” GMA executive director Jackie Patillo stated. “We celebrate the outstanding achievement, hard work and creative excellence you have poured into this life-changing music.”

Patillo continued, “Our theme this year is ‘Love. Amplified.,’ a phrase we believe encompasses the collective power and impact of our music. At a time when so much of the world is divided and hostility is in the air, we will turn up the volume of love and the hope that can only be found in Jesus Christ.”

The Dove Awards will be held Oct. 11 at Lipscomb University and will air on TBN on Oct. 16.  Voting for the final winners will run Aug. 23 through Aug. 30.
