For those unaware, the Gospel Music Association Dove Awards is sort of like the American Music Awards for Christians. For many years, the only way to witness the award show was to actually attend the event. This will be the fifth year that viewers can watch the proceeding in the comfort of their own homes a week after the actual event on the UP network, but many are still unaware of this.

Tonight’s telecast, taped live from Nashville’s Lipscomb University, will be presented tonight at 8:00 p.m. (ET). You may not be aware that you can even view the channel in your home, but it is becoming more and more accessible to Christian families. You can click here to see if you already have the channel.

This year marks the award show’s 44th year and is hosted by Amy Grant and Kirk Franklin. Like other music award shows, it features many musical performances, and tonight they include acts by NEEDTOBREATHE, the Gaither Vocal Band, Jason Crabb, Michael W. Smith, the Newsboys, Tamela Mann, TobyMac and others.

Tonight’s presenters of the awards include: Candace Cameron Bure, Rusty & Julie Bulloch, Pastor Rick Warren, Joyce Meyer, Brandon Heath, Chonda Pierce, David Mann, Isaac Carree, Jaci Velasquez, Lecrae, Bart Millard, Mandisa and Montell Jordan.

This year, awards will be given out in 42 categories voted on by the GMA membership. For the first time, GMA added a feature film category this year in response to the rise in prominence and impact of inspirational films within the entertainment community.
