Nashville, TN (August 13, 2014) – Jason Crabb, Grammy Award winner and 21 time GMA Dove Award winner, has received three nominations for the 45th Annual GMA Dove Awards.

Southern Gospel Performance of the Year – “Love Is Stronger,” Jay DeMarcus (producer)
Southern Gospel Song of the Year – “Love Is Stronger,” Michael Mobley (writer)
The message of “Love Is Stronger” has impacted lives around the globe, highlighting military and special needs families, giving hope in the lyrics. Premiering on USAToday.com, the video has been viewed around the world through airings on GAC, CMT, UPtv, and YouTube, among others. Recently the video and song were highlighted during the National Down Syndrome Congress in New York City with the star of the video, Ashley DeRamus – a woman living with Down Syndrome, making a special appearance.
“When my producer Jay DeMarcus brought me this song, I knew it was special and I couldn’t believe I was going to get the chance to record it, ” Crabb commented. “To be nominated for the GMA Dove Awards for this video and song is very humbling. Every time I sing it, I am thankful that God chose me to spread this message. Just as the song says, yes, life is tough but love is stronger. His love is the love that knows no bounds. I am very grateful. Congratulations to my family and peers on their nominations as well.”
