Carrie Underwood Wins GMA Dove Award For CeCe Winans Duet ‘Great Is Thy Faithfulness’
Carrie Underwood has won the 2021 Gospel Music Association Dove Award for Inspirational Recorded Song of the Year for her collaboration with gospel superstar CeCe Winans, “Great Is Thy Faithfulness.”
The song comes from Underwood’s critically-acclaimed album of gospel hymns, My Savior, which was also nominated for Bluegrass/Country/Roots Album of the Year.
Winners were announced by the Gospel Music Association on Friday.
Underwood won her first Dove Award in 2006, winning Country Recorded Song of the Year for “Jesus Take The Wheel.”
My Savior, released in March, debuted at No.1 on the Billboard Country chart, making it her ninth consecutive release to do so.
The country music superstar extends her record as the only artist to accomplish that feat with all nine of her album releases from the beginning of her career.
The album was brought to life with a virtual livestreamed event from the legendary Ryman Auditorium on Easter Sunday, which was viewed by nearly 2.5 million fans around the world and raised over $112,000 for Save the Children.
The “My Savior: LIVE From The Ryman” concert DVD and television special, which also featured Winans as a special guest, were released in July.
