Reunion Records’ modern pop band Tenth Avenue North, hard charging off the success of its sophomore full-length release The Light Meets The Dark, has taken in four nominations for this year’s 42nd Annual Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, including nods in two categories in which the band received nominations last year.
Tenth Avenue North picked up nominations in the coveted categories Song of the Year (for lead vocalist/songwriter Mike Donehey’s work on “Hold My Heart” from Over And Underneath) and Group of the Year, as well as in the Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year (for The Light Meets The Dark) and Christmas Album (as part of The Essential Christmas Collection) categories.
The band was nominated in both the Song and Group general categories last year, taking home the Song of the Year trophy for the smash hit “By Your Side,” from its debut album Over And Underneath.
The Dove Awards nominations cap a tremendously busy 2010 season and position the band squarely in the fast lane for 2011. Coming next for the group, the March 1 release of its first live DVD/CD project, titled Tenth Avenue North Live: Inside & In Between. Much more than a concert video, this 45-minute visual journey showcases the very heart of Tenth Avenue North. Viewers will hear directly from Donehey as he shares the band’s passion for the gospel in this captivating live concert experience which further explores the deeper message behind the group’s most popular songs.
The 42nd Annual GMA Dove Awards will be held at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, Ga. on Wednesday, April 20th. The awards show will be televised on GMC at 8:00p.m. ET/delayed PT on Easter Sunday, April 24th.
