TobyMac and Casting Crowns were among the winners for the first fan-voted awards show in Christian music history. The K-LOVE Fan Awards show was held June 1 at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.

TobyMac won Artist of the Year, while Casting Crowns was honored with Group/Duo of the Year. Other winners included Chris Tomlin for Male Artist of the Year; Kari Jobe for Female Artist of the Year; For King & Country for Breakthrough Artist of the Year; Big Daddy Weave's "Redeemed" for Song of the Year; Alex and Stephen Kendrick's The Love Dare (B&H Books) for Book Impact of the Year; and Courageous for Movie Impact of the Year.

More than two-dozen music artists performed during the award show, including Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, Mandisa and TobyMac, who opened the event with his hit "Me Without You," a nominee for Song of the Year.

The show, part of The Ultimate Fan Experience: K-LOVE Fan Awards, held May 31-June 2 in Nashville, was hosted by Phil and Kay Robertson and Jase and Missy Robertson, stars of A&E TV's popular show Duck Dynasty.

Fans voted online for nominees "celebrating artists, athletes, authors and entertainers who, with excellence, engage and impact popular culture for Jesus Christ," organizers said. Nominees were determined by K-LOVE with consideration given to airplay, spins, impact and overall performance. A leading Christian radio network with a weekly audience of 14 million, K-LOVE selected Nashville as the host city because it is "home to the faith-based entertainment industry."
