Chris August Earns First Ever Dove Award Nominations

Fervent Records’ hot debut artist Chris August is soaring high with five Dove Award nominations in the following categories: New Artist Of The Year, Male Vocalist Of The Year, Pop/Contemporary Album Of The Year for his shining debut album No Far Away, Song Of The Year and Pop/Contemporary Recorded Song Of The Year for his chart-topping hit “Starry Night.” This marks the Texas native’s first ever Dove Awards nominations and with five total to boot makes him the most nominated New Artist this year.

“This was the best day of my life,” exclaims August. “I was hoping for one nomination, but this just blew my mind. It is an unbelievable honor to be nominated and feel this incredible amount of support and respect from your peers.”

The 42nd Annual Dove Awards show will be taped live at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, GA, on April 20th and broadcast on The Gospel Music Channel (GMC) on Sunday, April 24th at 8:00 p.m. EST.

For August, the celebrations continued as he was honored for his No. 1 smash single “Starry Night” yesterday at a special ASCAP event held in Nashville, TN. “Starry Night” is the only New Artist single of 2010 to score a No. 1 hit at Christian radio.

Adding to the week’s excitement is the release of August’s second single entitled “7×70,” which debuted in the Top 20 on both Billboard’s National Christian Audience and Christian/AC Indicator charts with over 81 stations on board the week of release. “7×70” is also from the singer-songwriter’s debut album, No Far Away, which is available everywhere now.  

A vulnerable ballad about forgiveness that was influenced by his parents divorcing when he was in fifth grade, “7×70” is the follow-up to August’s debut single “Starry Night,” which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Christian/AC chart in September and stayed put for six weeks, launching this self-taught pianist, guitarist, and producer as an artist in his own right. August had previously toured as the keyboard player and opening act for pop sensation Ashlee Simpson and worked with Ryan Cabrera, Brian McKnight, and Jessica Simpson before shifting his focus to a solo career. He has put his refined skill-set to work by co-producing No Far Away with acclaimed producer Ed Cash, resulting in an emotionally resonant collection of soulful pop-rock sing-alongs, touching balladry, and heart-on-sleeve lyricism that has become the best-selling New Artist release in the Christian genre in 2010.
