Hey guys. Trust me to always update you with the right things. I have the list of the winners if this year 2009 Dove Awards and let us see if the people I wanted to win...won.

1. Artist of the Year: Steven Curtis Chapman (Well, I am happy he got it. Can’t believe Chris or Casting Crowns did not bag the award...and I voted)

2. New Artist of the Year: Tenth Avenue North (Another prediction that went wrong. I voted for FRANCESCA!)

3. Song of the Year: "Give Me Your Eyes" Brandon Heath, Jason Ingram (Another wrong prediction. What happened to Mighty to Save?)

So, as you can see there were 40 categories. I decided to predict the winners in 29 categories. OK. Maybe I hoped that in 29 categories at least maybe 2 people that I know and like will win in every of those categories. Anyways, out of 29 categories I got 15 right. That’s something aint it?

I am happy for everyone who won though. I am always excited that when the Dove Awards are around. Congratulations to Brandon Heath, MaryMary, Casting Crown, Chris Tomlin, Group 1 Crew, Point of Grace, Kirk Franklin and everyone else. Keep repping God’s kingdom.
