Tauren Wells has been tapped to host the upcoming 54th annual GMA Dove Awards on Oct. 17 at Nashville’s Allen Arena.
The eight-time winner and 17-time nominee will also be performing on the show, which is already sold out. Fans can tune in to the broadcast exclusively on TBN and the TBN app on Oct. 20 at 7 p.m. CT and 9 p.m. CT, with an encore presentation on Oct. 27 at 7 p.m. CT and 9 p.m. CT.
Wells is a celebrated Platinum-selling musician, preacher, public speaker and father, with eight GMA Dove Awards (including Contemporary Christian Artist of the Year and New Artist of the Year), 10 Grammy nominations and a Billboard Music Award nomination. He has also achieved six No. 1s, more than 330 million career video views and over 1.1 billion global streams to date and counting.
The theme for the 54th annual GMA Dove Awards is Joyful Echo. Isaiah 42:12 from The Message says, “Make God’s glory resound, echo His praises from coast to coast.”
“I’m excited and honored to be hosting this year’s GMA Dove Awards – truly such a special celebration of Christian and gospel music,” says Wells. “What Joyful Echo makes me think of is the writer in scripture that says one generation will tell another of the greatness of God. That essentially the goodness of God will be echoed from one generation to another,” he continues. “What joy it brings the believer to be able to tell those coming from behind us how great, how good, how awesome God is. It’s also cool to note that as you declare God’s praises and sing of His goodness, it reverberates throughout history the greatest of our God.”
