Christian music newcomers Tauren Wells, Cory Asbury and Zach Williams won big at the 49th annual GMA Dove Awards Tuesday night.
The biggest names in Christian music gathered for the prestigious event at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee, where Wells dominated the awards show, winning four of his eight Dove nominations. Wells received awards for Contemporary Christian Artist of the Year, New Artist of the Year, Rap/Hip Hop Recorded Song of the Year and Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year.
The former lead singer for Christian rock group Royal Tailor also performed his No. 1 single “Known” from his solo debut album, Hills and Valleys, as well as the tune, “War Cry” with show winners Social Club Misfits.
“While it’s great to pose for all these pictures and getting to hold all these trophies, this doesn’t matter as much as what is happening inside our hearts,” Wells said backstage.
Worship Pastor Cory Asbury also had a great night. His hit song “Reckless Love” earned Doves for Song of the Year, Worship Song of the Year and Worship Album of the Year.
“What a privilege this is,” Asbury said in a statement shared with The Christian Post. “Isn’t it just like the Lord to take our failures and our overall jacked-up mess and turn it into something beautiful? He takes our disappointments and turns them into a dance floor. He allows us to be kids again.”
