Karlene and George Beverly Shea and Jeff and Sheri Easter visit at this year’s GRAMMY® Nominee Reception held at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles, CA. Shea was honored by the GRAMMYS® with a lifetime achievement award at the event. The Easters were nominated at the awards show for Best Southern, Country or Bluegrass Gospel Album for Expecting Good Things

two nominations for this year’s GMA DOVE Awards according to announcements made at a press conference this week held at the Fox Theatre’s Grand Salon in Atlanta, GA.

Following a 2010 DOVE Award win for Southern Gospel Song of the Year (“Born to Climb”), their project Expecting Good Things (Spring Hill Music) garnered two more DOVE nods this year including Country Album of the Year and Bluegrass Recorded Song of the Year (“Workin’ on a Road”).

Jeff & Sheri just returned from Los Angeles where they celebrated their second lifetime GRAMMY® nomination, also for Expecting Good Things, a recording that features songs selected and recorded during Sheri’s battle with breast cancer. Sheri joined writers including Wayne Haun, Joel Lindsey, Tony Wood and others to pen songs for the release that capture her journey and victory over this disease.

Expecting Good Things, available online and at retailers everywhere, is distributed by EMI CMG.
