K-love Announces Nominees For 2022 Fan Awards

The organisers of the K-Love Fan Awards have today announced the nominees for the 2022 edition of the awards. Anne Wilson, Casting Crowns, Katy Nichole, Maverick City Music, Toby Mac and Zach Williams, Brandon Lake & Jenn Johnson, Tasha Layton and Zach Williams are some of the gospel acts leading this year’s nominations. The surprise absentees from this year’s nominations are gospel music heavyweights Hillsong United and Bethel Music, who has unarguably had a quiet year. The omission of Hillsong United might be due in part to the timing of the release of their album.

In their absence, Maverick City Music has held the fort with power songs such as Jireh, and Million Little Miracles in the past 12 months.

There is therefore little surprise that Promises, the heartrending worship song off their live album, has received a nomination for Worship Song of the Year.

The awards organizers have also added a new category for fans to vote for their favourite gospel podcasters of the year.  The three-day event and arguably the biggest awards in Christian music will take place in Nashville from May 27-29, starting with a concert on Friday and closing with a Sunday morning worship at the Gaylord Hotel. 

The event will be hosted by veteran Christian songwriter Mathew West, and multi-Grammy Award nominee, Tauren Wells.
