Crossroads congratulates The McKameys and the Chuck Wagon Gang, who have both been nominated for 2020 GMA Dove Awards for their albums released last year.
The McKameys’ The Crown—their last release after the announcement they’d no longer be touring full time—is nominated for Southern Gospel Album of the Year. The Crown once again brought The McKameys’ anointed message of faithfulness and the power of the Gospel to the world, with songs like “From Dust To Glory,” “We All Need A Savior” and the current single, “God Is Good.”
“We are truly honored for our album The Crown to be nominated for a Dove Award,” say The McKameys. “We were truly surprised but humbled.”
The Chuck Wagon Gang’s No Depression in Heaven: The Gospel Songs of the Carter Family is nominated for Bluegrass Album of the Year. On this album, the group honors The Carter Family’s storied career, carrying on the American roots tradition of singing songs from the heart and telling stories of life’s struggles and what people turn to to get through them. With empathy, this music recognizes the human condition.
“It’s been such an honor to be part of this tribute to the Carter Family and we are thrilled and excited at its Dove Award nomination,” says Shaye Smith, alto singer. “The entire team worked so hard to produce a tremendous project, which from its inception has really been a blessing to many folks.”
The GMA Dove Awards will air exclusively on TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Network) on Friday, October 30.
