GMA Update: The Dove Awards…

What a night. I got down to the Gaylord Entertainment Center at around 5pm waiting for the doors to open. They
finally let us in about 5:30pm so I missed the actual start of the award presentations. I got to my seat at about
5:40pm and stayed put for the rest of the night. To me there were many surprises as to who won, but I am
extremely happy to see Nicole Nordeman do so well and Michael W. holding on to his Artist of the Year award and
surprisingly getting his first “Male Vocalist” award to put the icing on the cake in celebration of his 20th anniversary
in CCM. I was certainly glad I didn’t have to make the decision in the New Artist category, but was pleasantly
surprised to see the Paul Colman Trio win.
The performances were all great. I had fun watching Daily Planet being all dressed up with top hats and suits. Audio
Adrenaline did an excellent rendition of “Ocean Floor,” Mark Schultz did “Back In My Arms Again,” Joy Williams
beautifully sung “Surprise” and the highlight for me was seeing Hall of Fame inductee Amy Grant and her hubby, Vince
Gill perform a duet of the Old Hymn, “Nothing But The Blood.”
As slated, the feature of the evening was done in fine fashion to commemorate 20th anniversary of the song
“Friends”. Michael W. Smith along with a few friends including Anointed, Steven Curtis Chapman, Point of Grace,
Mac Powell, Ce Ce Winans, Joy Williams, Michael Tait and Avalon sang the ever famous song this time around
arranged and produced by Brown Bannister.
The night was one that I will never forget. An incredibly exciting experience and a memorable one too.
