Nashville, TN (August 18, 2014) Excited probably doesn’t say it best, but that’s the word to use for how the Browders reacted to the news of gaining their first Dove Award nomination at the GMA Press Conference in Nashville at Lipscomb University on August 13th.
Their hit song, â€œLift Up His Nameâ€ penned by Matthew Browder received a nomination for Inspirational Song of the Year.
Matthew Browder stated â€œIn our journey of making music, I find The Lord periodically places signs in our path to remind us that our labor is not in vain and that He sees us. It often comes from a person who shares that they have been encouraged or introduced to Christ through our music and ministry. Today it comes through our first Dove Award nomination. We are thankful beyond words for this great honor and praise God for His goodness to us.â€
The Browders have attained number one status on most of the Southern Gospel charts with two songs from their most current CD ‘Time Machine’ and they achieved five number one songs on their previous project ‘The Message.’
Daywind President Ed Leonard commented â€œThe nominated song ‘Lift Up His Name’ is an amazing song that sounds different from anything else. I am so glad the Browders received recognition for this groundbreaking song.â€
The Browders sing a wonderful mixture of styles and songs, many of them written themselves. This first Dove Award nomination puts them another rung higher on the ladder they are climbing to reach their ultimate goal of reaching more people with the Good News of the Gospel of Christ.
