Dahlonega, Georgia (October 16, 2015) Daywind Recording artist Karen Peck and New River won the Southern Gospel Album of the Year for their newest CD titled Pray Now. The Award was presented at the 46th Annual GMA Dove Awards Ceremony in Nashville, Tennessee on October 13th. The project was produced by Wayne Haun.
Karen stated, “We are deeply honored and thankful. Pray Now is a very special album that resonates where we have been spiritually this year. Each song is a statement of faith and encouragement. The Lord sent these songs at the right time in our ministry and we are grateful that they are drawing people to Him. We are blessed beyond measure.”
In the post award press conference Karen said, “We know what we do is a calling and it’s about seeing people saved and hearts touched and turned toward the Lord. That’s the number one goal, but nights like tonight was the Lord encouraging us. Next year will mark the 25th anniversary that Susan and I started this group and we’re so thankful we’re still out here after all these years.”
The title cut of the album “Pray Now” hit the number one spot on numerous charts and echoes the feelings of so many people dealing with life’s struggles. This is the fourth Dove Award win for the group.
