Tribbett was nominated in the following categories: Best Gospel/CCM Performance and Best Gospel Song for “If He Did It Before … Same God” [Live]; and Best Gospel Album for Greater Than (Motown Gospel/Capitol Christian Distribution).

Tasha Cobbs was honored with two nominations for Best Gospel/CCM Performance for “Break Every Chain,” a track from her live album Grace (Motown Gospel/Capitol Christian Distribution), which was nominated for Best Gospel Album.

Natalie Grant’s “Hurricane” received two nominations in the Best CCM Song and Best Gospel/CCM Performance categories. The song is the title track from Hurricane (Curb Records/Word Distribution).

Matt Maher’s two nominations derived from his worship album All the People Said Amen (Essential Records/Provident Distribution). It received a nod for Best CCM Album and for the song “Lord, I Need You.”
