MercyMe took top honors at the 2018 K-LOVE Fan Awards, earning awards for Group or Duo of the Year, Artist of the Year, and Song of the Year for “Even If.” In addition, the movie I Can Imagine, inspired by MercyMe’s song of the same name, was honored in the Film/Television Impact category.
Also among those honored were TobyMac for Male Artist of the Year, Lauren Daigle for Female Artist of the Year, Cory Asbury for Breakout Single of the Year with “Reckless Love,” the Philadelphia Eagles for Sports Impact, and Dimas Salaberrios for Book Impact with Street God.
Christian music artists Matthew West and Mandisa hosted the awards show Sunday at Nashville's iconic Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, capping the three-day Fan Awards Weekend that drew fans from all over the country.
The K-LOVE Fan Awards is the only fan-voted awards show in Christian entertainment. On top of bringing in the biggest names in Christian music and entertainment, the weekend also offers fans an opportunity to hear from top Christian thinkers and to be reminded of the different ways that God is moving behind the scenes.
On Saturday, fans were able to run/jog/walk/skip alongside some of their favorite K-LOVE Fan Award artists on a 5k fun run, raising awareness and providing help for Haiti's orphaned and abandoned children through the Hands and Feet Project.
The K-LOVE Fan Awards mission is to “create a fan experience that celebrates and promotes artists, athletes, authors and entertainers, who, with excellence, engage and impact popular culture for Jesus Christ.”
Tickets are already on sale for the 2019 K-LOVE Fan Awards, set to return to Nashville May 31-June 2, 2019.
