At last night’s Dove Awards, the Gaither Vocal Band took home both Southern Gospel Album of the Year and Southern Gospel Recorded Song of the Year for their album Give it Away and its title track, respectively. Another Southern Gospel group, the Lewis Family, also took home two Dove Awards, winning Bluegrass Album and Recorded Song of the Year Awards for Flyin’ High and a song “My Cross” from that project.

Producers Wayne Haun and Kevin Ward are listed in the official awards listing for their part in producing Flyin’ High, and producer Michael Sykes joins the members of the Gaither Vocal Band with co-producer credits for Give it Away.

  1. Sure “Give It Away” is the title song on the CD, but isn’t “I Will Go On” a much better song?

  2. Brian,
    YES IT IS.

  3. Hey – there are photos of the DOVE winners (including some SG people too) over on http://www.gospelmusicupdate.com. The Crabbs, Brian Free and Kevin and Wayne are pictured!
