NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 10, 2023) – Nominations for the 54th Annual GMA Dove Awards were announced this morning during a live broadcast via the Gospel Music Association’s YouTube Channel. Nominations were announced by Natalie Grant, Danny Gokey, JJ Hairston, Jordan Feliz, and Jason Crabb.
Jason Crabb and Dylan Scott were honored to be nominated for their collaboration on the hit single “Good Morning Mercy.”
The song was recorded live, in studio, and produced by Red Street Records owner, Jay DeMarcus, along with Kevin Rooney.
Jason Crabb expressed his gratitude, stating, “Being nominated for Bluegrass/Country/Roots Song of the Year for” Good Morning Mercy” is truly a blessing. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner than my good buddy, Dylan Scott, to bring this song to life. A huge thank you to Red Street Records for their unwavering support and to the Gospel Music Association voters for this honor. It’s a testament to the power of music and faith combined.”
Echoing the sentiment, Dylan Scott remarked, “So grateful for my friend Jason including me on this song. To be nominated for a GMA Dove award with him is something I never expected. My mom is smiling down on us today.”
“Having these two incredible singers in the room together was a real honor,” said Jay DeMarcus. “We cut this one in a very unconventional way, with having everyone in the room and going down live. I am very proud to have been a part of this!”
