Chris Tomlin took home his 23rd GMA Dove Award for Worship Album of the Year for Never Lose Sight at the 48th Annual GMA Dove Awards Tuesday night at Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN. The Dove Award comes on the heels of Tomlin’s American Music Award (AMA) nomination for Favorite Artist in the Contemporary Inspirational Category, the third AMA nomination of his career. The AMAs will take place on Nov. 19 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, CA, and will be broadcast live (8:00–11:00 p.m. EST), on ABC.
“It is an honor to receive the Dove Award for Worship Album of the Year after just having been nominated for Favorite Artist for the AMAs,” says Tomlin. “I am humbled by how God continues to work through these songs and the entire worship community. My prayer is that these songs continue to help give the Church a voice to praise and worship the One True God.”
Currently headlining his “Good Good Father Tour”, sponsored by Amazon Music Unlimited, Tomlin is releasing the Never Lose Sight Tour Edition album, featuring five unreleased live versions of his biggest hits, including “Home,” “Good Good Father,” and “Our God,” available to stream and download exclusively on Amazon Music Unlimited. Hitting 18 cities across America, “The Good Good Father Tour” features special guest Matt Maher along with Pastor Darren Whitehead, who is sharing from HOLY ROAR 7 Words That Will Change the Way You Worship, a book collaboration from Tomlin and Whitehead recently released on Oct. 10.
