Veteran Atlanta-based rock band Third Day helped welcome the 42nd Annual GMA Dove Awards to its home city by helping announce the slate of nominees for this year’s awards during a press conference this morning at the historic Fox Theatre. The multi-Platinum outfit also celebrates four nominations today, with lead singer Mac Powell receiving additional recognition as a songwriter.
The band notched notices in the categories of Rock/Contemporary Recorded Song of the Year for “Lift Up Your Face,” with Powell’s nod for writing the hit song, Rock/Contemporary Album of the Year for Move, Christmas Album for its work on The Essential Christmas Collection and Recorded Music Packaging for Move.
The Dove Awards nominations come mere days before the band kicks off a 40-city tour supporting its most recent full-length release Move. The “Make Your Move” tour starts Friday in Mercedes, Tex., and runs through May 21 in West Palm Beach, Fla. Additionally on this tour, the band has teamed with Arizona-based Grand Canyon University (GCU) to offer fans a chance to win a college scholarship. At each stop one qualified fan will be selected to receive a $10,000 scholarship to GCU. The overall partnership will award up to $1 million in scholarships to Third Day fans during the duration of this tour.
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.
