Nominations for the 41st Annual GMA Dove Awards nominations were announced this morning at Belmont University’s Curb Café, with Nashville-based singer/songwriter Brandon Heath serving as one of the presenters at today’s nominee press conference. In addition to announcing the nominees, Heath scored three of his own nominations, including the prestigious Male Vocalist of the Year, an award he won in 2009. Heath nabbed a Short Form Video of the Year nod for “Wait And See,” the second chart-topping single from his 2008 GRAMMY-nominated, sophomore album, What If We, plus recognition for his participation on Glory Revealed II: The Word of God In Worship, nominated in the Special Event Album of the Year category.
2009 was a huge year for Brandon, nominated for two GRAMMY awards, and his first American Music Award. Heath also garnered three wins at last year’s Dove Award ceremony, including Song of the Year for his hit song “Give Me Your Eyes,” the blockbuster lead single from What If We. Having captured 14 weeks at No.1 on Billboard’s Hot Christian AC radio chart, plus 27 weeks at No. 1 on iTunes Christian Song Chart, with more than 440,000 total digital downloads, “Give Me Your Eyes” won an Emmy Award, and was used by NASA as the wake-up call for the Endeavour shuttle crew on their first day in orbit.
Heath’s new single “Love Never Fails” climbs to No.17 at Billboard’s AC Monitored radio chart this week.
