For all of us that love the ministry of music, particularly Gospel music, recently there was an announcement of the 22nd annual Absolutely Gospel Music Awards nominees.   Note that there were a number of Bluegrass artists receiving nods outside the Bluegrass category, which is newly added this year. These nominations are chosen by the staff of, and several members of the media.

First of all, the important, first ever category of Bluegrass Artist of the Year. And the nominees are:

  • Appalachian Road Show

  • Chosen Road

  • Darin & Brooke Aldridge

  • Donna Ulisse

  • Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers

  • Marty Raybon & Full Circle

  • Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder

  • Southern Raised

  • Steve Thomas & the Time Machine


Outside of this list, Chosen Road was also nominated for Breakout Artist, Becky Isaacs Bowman is nominated for Special Event Project for her "Songs That Pulled Me Through the Tough Times" album, The Isaacs for Southern Roots Single for "Give Him What You Got",  Ben Isaacs for Producer, "High Road" for Female Group, and Becky Isaacs Bowman for Female Vocalist.  One of our personal favorties John Berry is nominated for two separate honors in the 2023 Absolutely Gospel Music Awards, Positive Country Single of the Year: “Love Like You” and Positive Country Male Artist of the Year.

While we enjoy and love all Gospel music we are happy to see the Bluegrass category added and some of our own Country music superstars nominated for awards both in an out of the Bluegrass category.  All Country music fans and Gospel lovers are encouraged to listen to the music nominated.  A full list of the categories for the awards and the nominees for 2023 can be found on their website 

Winners are chosen by fan vote which unfortuantely is already closed this year.   The winners will be  announced on Tuesday, April 18, 2023 at the Capitol Theater in Lebanon, Tennessee at 6:00 p.m. . Tickets for the awards show will be available soon, again at their website.  Congratulations and best of luck to all the nominees!
