Dove Brothers Honored with 2 Diamond Award Nominations
BLADENBORO, N.C. – Mutli-award winning quartet the Dove Brothers were greeted with news last week that they have been nominated in the 2010 Diamond Awards. The nominees for this year’s Diamond Awards were announced in the May 2010 issue of SGN Scoops Digital.
The popular group landed two nominations in this year’s Diamond Awards program. With the group’s recent shift in sound to a more Country-based style, the quartet was honored with a nomination in the Favorite Christian Country Group category. In addition, the group’s current single and fan favorite tune “Hold On” (written by group owner/manager McCray Dove) is nominated for Favorite Song as well.
“This is exciting news for us!” mentioned McCray Dove. “We are so happy to see that the fans have gravitated toward the Country sound with us. We see this nomination in the Country category as confirmation that the fans have enjoyed the musical path that we have been on. You never know where the Dove Brothers will land next with our sound, but this means the world to us!”
