Downtown Nashville will become home to another hall of fame and music museum in 2025. The Gospel Music Association has announced their plans to open the Dove Center and Gospel Music Museum on the corner of Fourth Avenue and Commerce Street.
In a Christmas video, the GMA revealed that the center will include the Dove Awards Theatre, exhibits that highlight the history of the gospel music industry, a Hall of Fame area for the Gospel Music Hall of Fame’s members and more.
“Developed to preserve the legacy of our historic past, support the impact of today’s artists and plant seeds for the future, we believe the Dove Center will be a beacon of light for the kingdom of God,” said Gospel Music Association President/Executive Director Jackie Patillo in the video.
Founded in 1964, the Gospel Music Association serves a diverse community of creatives and professionals within the Christian and Gospel music industry. Since 1969, the association has hosted the annual Dove Awards, a night to honor a diverse range in sound and musical stylings in Gospel, pop, hip-hop and more. During last year’s awards at Lipscomb Allen Arena in Nashville, Brandon Lake took home the trophy for Artist of the Year. The association also hosts many events and programs throughout the year to celebrate their message, including GMA Christmas and Sound Mind Initiative.
