Lauren Daigle edges Lecrae for Artist of the Year at 2016 Dove Awards
Lauren Daigle walked away from the 47th annual GMA Dove Awards as winner of Artist of the Year, after being nominated alongside Hillsong UNITED, for KING & COUNTRY, TobyMac and the 2015 Artist of the Year, Lecrae.
“It’s kind of crazy just to see where God will take you in such a short amount of time,” she said, according to The Tennessean. “His glimpse of eternity looks a lot larger than ours, and I’m just honored to be a part of this.”

Daigle, who won New Artist of the Year in 2015, also earned Songwriter of the Year (Artist) and Pop/Contemporary Song of the Year for “Trust In You”.
In addition to Artist of the Year, Lecrae’s Church Clothes 3 was nominated for Rap/Hip Hop Album of the Year and “Can’t Do You” was up for Rap/Hip Hop Recorded Song of the Year. However, after winning seven Doves over the previous four years, his trophy case didn’t become more crowded on Tuesday night.
