Tenth Avenue North, 2009’s GMA Dove Awards New Artist of the Year, picked up where they left off last year, notching two nominations for the 41st Annual GMA Dove Awards.
The band was honored with nominations in two of the prestigious general categories for the Doves, notching a Song of the Year mention for “By Your Side” from its debut project Over and Underneath, as well as a nomination for Group of the Year.
The most recent Dove Award nominations highlight the career momentum the young band has worked incredibly hard to achieve, featuring retail, radio and live performance success. “By Your Side” and “Hold My Heart” (co-written by Tenth Avenue North frontman Mike Donehey and Jason Ingram) from Over and Underneath were recently spotlighted by the performance rights organization, SESAC, at a recent awards banquet.
Tenth Avenue North saw its live performance profile take off in 2009, with the band’s “Inside and In Between” Tour (its first as headliners) seeing sell-out shows in several markets. The band was also the only artist in 2009 to place two songs (“By Your Side” and “Hold My Heart”) simultaneously in the AC Monitored Top 10.
About Tenth Avenue North:
Named GMA Dove Awards New Artist of the Year (2009), Tenth Avenue North was the best-selling and most played new Christian artist of 2008, scoring three No. 1s at radio and crossing the 100,000 sales mark with its debut Over and Underneath (5/20/08) in just seven months. The band – Mike Donehey (lead vocals/acoustic guitar), Jason Jamison (drummer) and Jeff Owen (electric guitar/background vocals) – has toured extensively over the last year in support of Over and Underneath (crossing the 200,000 mark in total album sales), and recently wrapped an impressive run of shows on its very first headlining tour- “Inside and In Between”. Tenth Avenue North is one of the few debut bands that have experienced enough momentum to headline its own tour with only one album under its belt.
