two nominations for this yearâ€™s GMA DOVE Awards according to announcements made at a press conference this week held at the Fox Theatreâ€™s Grand Salon in Atlanta, GA.
Following a 2010 DOVE Award win for Southern Gospel Song of the Year (â€œBorn to Climbâ€), 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 (â€œWorkinâ€™ on a Roadâ€).
