Centricity Music artist Lauren Daigle continues to build momentum with unprecedented record sales, multiple award wins/nominations and a SOLD OUT concert tour. Daigle received her first American Music Award nomination this week for “Favorite Artist Contemporary/Inspirational,” in great company with Hillsong UNITED and Chris Tomlin. She also took top honors at the Gospel Music Association’s (GMA) 47th Annual Dove Awards as the frontrunner for award wins with three for the evening, making this a total of six career Dove’s to date for Daigle since the release of her debut album HOW CAN IT BE in early 2015.
Nominated for six Dove Awards (the most for any artist this year), Daigle walked away with “Pop/Contemporary Recorded Song of the Year” for her chart-topper, “Trust In You,” and “Songwriter of the Year.” She also won the prestigious “Artist of the Year” honor. Hosted by award-winning duo For King & Country and gospel music’s Tye Tribbett, the Dove Awards were held at Allen Arena at David Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee, and will broadcast on October 16 on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN).
“This past year has been such an amazing journey with so many ‘pinch me’ moments,” says Daigle. “The embrace and support of the industry and fans has been overwhelming, and I am so honored that God continues to use me to touch people’s hearts and lives through music.”
Among her American Music Award nomination and Dove Award wins, Daigle recently SOLD OUT her upcoming debut headline concert tour. In support of her Gold Record album, HOW CAN IT BE, the 12-city “A Night with Lauren Daigle” circuit, presented by CURE International with special guest Chris McClarney, kicks off today in Memphis, Tenn. and will run through October 29, ending in Clearwater, Fla.
