GMA executive director Jackie Patillo, artists CeCe Winans and Jason Roy (Building 429) and radio personalities Wally from WAY-FM and Doug from the "Family Friendly Morning Show" participated in the nominee press conference from the campus of Lipscomb University.

"Congratulations to all of this year's Dove Award nominees!" Patillo stated. "We celebrate the outstanding achievement, hard work and creative excellence you have poured into this life-changing music."

Patillo continued, "Our theme this year is 'Love. Amplified.,' a phrase we believe encompasses the collective power & impact of our music. At a time when so much of the world is divided and hostility is in the air, we will turn up the volume of love and the hope that can only be found in Jesus Christ."

TBN Chairman Matt Crouch said that the faith-and-family network is thrilled once again to serve as the exclusive broadcast partner for the GMA Dove Awards. "The Dove Awards set the standard for excellence in the field of Gospel and Christian music," he said. "And as always, TBN is excited to share with our global audience this incredible evening honoring those who create the music that brings hope and changes lives."
