Tribbett was nominated in categories of Best Gospel/CCM Performance, Best Gospel Song for “If He Did It Before ... Same God” [Live] and Best Gospel Album for Greater Than.
Cobbs was honored with two nominations for Best Gospel/CCM Performance for “Break Every Chain,” a track from her live album Grace, which was nominated for Best Gospel Album.
Grant’s “Hurricane” received two nominations in the Best CCM Song and Best Gospel/CCM Performance categories. The song is the title track from Hurricane.
