Since 1969, the Gospel Music Association (GMA) has been recognizing the best in Christian music. Bill Gaither came up with the idea, and countless artists, songwriters, musicians, and producers have made the event a big part of TBN’s annual fall calendar.
 
The Dove Awards have grown to include Inspirational, Pop, Southern Gospel, Gospel (Soul), Musicals, Praise & Worship, Country & Bluegrass, Rock, and more.
