A complete list of the 2020 Dove Awards Winners

Due to COVID-19 precautions, the Dove Awards stretched across two nights this year: A pre-television awards segment that aired Thursday on the program’s Facebook page, and a Friday night mainstage broadcast featuring marquee honors and performances.

This year’s televised event aired on faith-based network TBN. Artists pre-taped appearances at a TBN studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee.

Top honors went to brotherly duo for KING & COUNTRY, who scored Artist of the Year and Short Form Video of the Year for Dolly Parton collaboration “God Only Knows.”

Kanye West, the global cultural figure, best-selling rapper and U.S. presidential candidate who released his Christian album “Jesus Is King” last year, earned three nominations and one Dove Award — Rap/Hip Hop Recorded Song of the Year for his track “Follow God.”

Additional winners Friday night included Tauren Wells, a first-time Contemporary Christian Artist of the Year recipient; Tasha Cobbs Leonard expanded her career Dove wins to four with Gospel Artist of the Year; Americana-tinged family act We The Kingdom scored New Artist of the Year; Nashville-produced movie “I Still Believe” earned Inspirational Film of the Year; and breakout worship tune “Way Maker” took Song of the Year.
