The Gospel Music Association has announced that the GMA Dove Awards will return to one of its original homes, Nashville, TN. Over the last few years the show has traveled, with Atlanta being its most recent home. The award show will take place for the first time in the fall of the year on October 15, 2013 and will be televised on GMC from the Lipscomb University Allen Arena. Mayor Karl Dean of Nashville states, “The Christian and Gospel music industry plays an important role in the energy of our city’s music scene, and, as Music City, we are proud to welcome the Dove Awards back to Nashville.” The Association has also added a feature film category to the awards, with inspirational films being on the rise in the industry. To assist in these efforts, The Dove Foundation has partnered with the GMA Association with the development and credibility of the award.
