In terms of sheer numbers, the night belonged to an artist who didn’t claim Nashville, Atlanta or any other U.S. city as home: British songsmith and worship leader Matt Redman, whose six wins included songwriter and song of the year for his “10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord).” But one of the night’s top honors — artist of the year — went to Christian pop mainstay and Middle Tennessee resident TobyMac, and local names were called throughout the evening, from Hendersonville singer Jason Crabb (southern gospel performance of the year) and Nashville duo for King & Country(new artist of the year).
It was TobyMac’s second artist of the year award on his seventh nomination in the category and his first since 2008. The gospel hip-hop artist won a total of four awards to bring his career total to 18, including pop-contemporary album “Eye On It” and short-form video for the title song. He performed that song at the top of the awards, appearing on stage at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tenn., with a drum corps and a yellow and black candy-striped cane.
