Husband-and-wife Duo Joey+Rory Honored with Four DOVE Nominations
Labels’ Artists Garner Nods in Nine DOVE Award Categories
NASHVILLE, Tenn.—August 15th, 2016—The Gaither Music Group and Spring Hill Music Group rosters of artists were honored with 18 2016 GMA DOVE Award nominations across nine categories, according to the press conference held on Wednesday in the Shamblin Theater at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee.
“It is exciting to see our family of artists honored with these nominations,” stated label president Barry Jennings. “In such a polarized world, we are thankful for this celebration of musical diversity and grateful that our artists are included in this very special and eclectic event.”
GRAMMY®-nominated, husband-and-wife duo Joey+Rory have been nominated for four 2016 GMA DOVE Awards including Bluegrass/Country Album of the Year (Hymns That Are Important to Us), Country Recorded Song of the Year (“He Touched Me”), Bluegrass Recorded Song of the Year (“I’ll Fly Away”) and Long Form Video of the Year (Hymns That Are Important to Us).
Named a Rolling Stone Country Album to Watch for 2016, Hymns That Are Important to Us, produced by Rory Feek and Joe West (except “When I’m Gone,” Gary Paczosa), is currently the #2 Top-Selling Country Album for 2016 and is the first recording in nearly a decade to top both the Top Country and Top Christian Albums charts. The release debuted at #1 on the Country Music chart and remained in the Top 10 on that chart for 20 weeks. It was in the Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart for six weeks and is currently the 13th Top-Selling Album this year across all music genres. The video, which has reached gold status, held the #1 spot on the Music Video Sales chart for months.
Creators and hosts of “The Joey+Rory Show,” on RFD-TV, which airs in 50 million households weekly, Joey+Rory’s everyday lives, relationship and music have been featured in recent months in People, “Entertainment Tonight,” ABC News, CBS News, CNN, Time, Entertainment Weekly, USA Today and more.
Country Music Hall of Famer and Statler Brothers member Jimmy Fortune received three DOVE nominations for Bluegrass/Country Album of the Year (Hits & Hymns), Country Recorded Song of the Year (“I Believe,” featuring The Whites) and Bluegrass Recorded Song of the Year (“Life’s Railway to Heaven,” featuring The Oak Ridge Boys). The star-studded project features collaborations with Vince Gill, The Oak Ridge Boys, Dailey & Vincent, Ricky Skaggs and others.
A member of both the Country Music Hall of Fame and Gospel Music Hall of Fame, Fortune has been featured on a TV special, hosted by Bill Gaither, currently airing on various television networks and channels including RFD-TV, Dish TV, AT&T U-verse, DirecTV and more.
Gospel Music Hall of Fame members and GRAMMY® Award winners the Gaither Vocal Band are nominated for Southern Gospel Artist of the Year and Southern Gospel Song of the Year for “Jesus Gave Me Water” from their highly acclaimed Sometimes It Takes a Mountain recording, produced by group members Bill Gaither and David Phelps along with Ben Isaacs (Oak Ridge Boys, The Isaacs).
“Jesus Gave Me Water” became a Top 10 national radio single while the recording hit #1 on the Southern Gospel sales chart according to Nielsen Soundscan and #6 on the Contemporary Christian Music sales chart. Also nominated for a 2015 GRAMMY® Award, the Gaither Vocal Band has garnered five GRAMMY® nominations, two GRAMMY® Awards and 17 GMA DOVE Awards to date.
Two-time GRAMMY® nominees and multi-award-winning Jeff & Sheri Easter received nods for Bluegrass/Country Album of the Year for Small Town, Celebrating 30 Years of Music & Marriage (Spring Hill Music) as well as Country Recorded Song of the Year (“Small Town Someone (Lunch)”), written by Sheri Easter, Kenna Turner West and Jason Cox.

Jeff & Sheri are the recipients of six GMA DOVE Awards, 15 Singing News Fan Awards, three Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music Association Awards and two International Country Gospel Music Association honors.
David Phelps is up for Inspirational Song of the Year for “Heaven’s Shore,” the recent Top 40 radio single from his current release, Freedom. Produced by Phelps and mentor/friend/gospel music legend Bill Gaither, Freedom showcases Phelps’ talents as a singer, songwriter, arranger and producer. The GRAMMY®-nominated, classically trained tenor, also known as the tenor for the Gaither Vocal Band, has won two GRAMMY® Awards and four GMA DOVE Awards.
GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriter and comedian Mark Lowry has been nominated for Southern Gospel Album of the Year for How We Love (Spring Hill Music Group), an all-new, 11-song collection produced by Kevin Williams. The project includes guest appearances by Dailey & Vincent, Sisters, Jimmy and Sonya Isaacs Yeary and The Martins who join Mark for a four-part, a cappella rendition of the classic hymn “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross.” Known for bringing laughter to countless audiences worldwide, the GMA Hall of Famer shares his contemplative side with honest, redeeming messages through How We Love.
The Isaacs (Sonya Isaacs Yeary, Rebecca Isaacs Bowman, Ben Isaacs and Lily Isaacs) were honored with a nomination for Bluegrass Recorded Song of the Year for “Leave It All on the Altar,” which is featured on the group’s recent project, The Living Years, produced by Isaacs and Gaither.

I love the Christmas season. It is the most wonderful time of the year and I can’t wait for it to roll around every year. We get the opportunity to travel in the Jubilee Christmas tour and it is a blast of a trip! This year, I took a few minutes and asked most of the Jubilee gang a Christmas question. I hope you enjoy this Jubilee Christmas edition of On the Couch With Fouch.
Matt Fouch releases a video interview with various artists on a regular basis, with the title “On The Couch With Fouch.” As the bass singer with Legacy Five, Matt has been a part of Jubilee Christmas for several years. Matt talks with various members of Legacy Five, Booth Brothers, and Greater Vision.

Thanks for joining us for another Wacky Wednesday on SGN Scoops. In honor of NQC week in Pigeon Forge, today we ask the insightful question, “Who is your favorite Gospel singer named Scott?”
SGN Scoops polled about 18 or so artists about various things and tabulated their answers. We have used this (not so great) scientific process to create today’s Wacky Wednesday Top Ten (more or less)!
On our initial tabulation of results, we have a tie of five answers each:
Chris, Clayton, Phil, David and Michaela voted for Scotty Inman. Joseph, Greg, Gary, Karen and Donna chose Scott Fowler.
Of course, you will notice from the list that there is a prevalence of Triumphant members who contributed to our poll!
Other answers received included:
Hannah Webb: “Scott Fowler.”
Lauren Talley Alvey: “This question could cause some friction on the Legacy
Billy Blackwood: “Wow, that’s a hard one! Ha!”
Shannon Smith: “Scott Johnson, former Three Bridges lead singer.”
Scotty Inman: “LOL.”
And of course, the usual ambiguous responses from the Three… Musketeers, The Booth Brothers:
Booth Brothers 1: “I’ve heard of some singer named Fowler but I’m not sure what his first name is.”
Booth Brothers 2: “Great Scott! There are a lot of great Scotts!”
Booth Brothers 3: No response (napping).
**Note: The Booth Brothers each answered each question but wouldn’t say whose answer it was…therefore we are leaving it up to you, dear reader, to guess whether the pithy answer comes from Michael Booth, Ronnie Booth or Paul Lancaster!
So now you know! The answers may be a little odd, but that is how we roll on the SGN Scoops Wacky Wednesday!
Thanks again to all of our participants. Be watching SGN Scoops mainpage for more Wacky Wednesdays in the weeks to come. Do you want to suggest a subject or an artist? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
