Christian artists for King & Country and Lauren Daigle both took home double awards at the seventh annual K-LOVE Fan Awards.
Matthew West and Mandisa returned to the Grand Ole Opry stage to host the awards for the second year. The live concert and award show on Sunday rounded out K-LOVE’s weekend, following meet and greets, songwriter showcases and the K-LOVE Run for Love.
For King & Country won the award for Group or Duo of the Year. Their song “God Only Knows” won Song of the Year.
“With these awards, we are very honored to win something, because that award represents someone’s connection to the song,” member Joel Smallbone said.
Daigle won Female Artist of the Year for the fourth consecutive year as well as the 2019 Artist of the Year.
“This has been an incredible year,” Daigle said on stage. “I just want to give so much glory to the Lord, he has taken the record so far and wide.”
We are Messengers’ song “Maybe It’s Ok” won Breakout Single of the year. The song sheds light on the stigma of mental health within the church, vocalist Darren Mulligan told The Tennessean.
“We wrote a song for people with mental health difficulties. We wanted to raise awareness about that especially in the church community. We wanted to say it’s o.k. to tell the truth, to admit to who you are,” Mulligan said.
