The 51st Annual GMA Dove Awards were held in October this year. In place of the traditional live TBN event, the association released pre-recorded performances and acceptance speeches due to COVID-19.
The presenters and performers list read like a Who’s Who list of today’s most beloved Christian artists. To name a few…Lecrae, Mandisa, and For King and Country, were joined by special guests like Cece Winans, Kari Jobe, Natalie Grant, the Oak Ridge Boys and many more.
Winning for both Rock/Contemporary Album for Victorious and Rock/Contemporary Recorded Song for Legendary, Skillet had an amazing year.
Skillet had some tough competition for both categories. For Rock/Contemporary Song of the year, they came up against nominees Demon Hunter, Richlin, LEDGER, and John Mark McMillan.
For Rock/Contemporary Album of the year, the other nominees were Apollo LTD, Demon Hunter, Disciple, and Red. They definitely had some stiff competition. But, ultimately, their incredible album and rocking Legendary anthem walked away with the award.
