Carrie Underwood is a powerhouse, and she’s proving she’s one of the most versatile voices in all of music. She teamed up twice this year with legendary rock band Guns N’ Roses. She honored one of the most legendary women of country music, Barbara Mandrell, on the 50th anniversary of Mandrell joining the Grand Ole Opry. And Underwood hopped on stage with a cover band in suburban Nashville for a Tom Petty cover. Now the superstar is earning awards nominations for her recent gospel album.
The Gospel Music Association nominated Carrie Underwood for a Dove Award for Best Bluegrass/Country/Roots Recorded Song of the Year. The nomination is for her track “All is Well” from her 2021 Christmas album My Gift. She’s in the award category with some iconic company. Dolly Parton also received a nomination for her version of “In the Sweet By and By.” The song appeared on a compilation album titled Country Faith Bluegrass.
Carrie Underwood now has four GMA Dove Award nominations and a pair of wins.
Underwood and Parton weren’t the only country music singers that earned nominations this year from the Gospel Music Association. Former Rascal Flatts singer Gary LeVox picked up a nomination for Bluegrass/Country/Roots Album of the Year for 2021’s One on One. Lady A’s Hillary Scott earned a nomination for her collaboration with Anne Wilson titled “Mamas.”
The ceremony is on October 18. There’s no word on what artists will perform.
