This year’s Dove Awards proved such a success that the show will return to Atlanta in 2012.
The 2011 Christian music awards ceremony, filmed at The Fox Theatre in April, marked the first time in the show’s 41-year history that it was held outside of Tennessee.
The broadcast of this year’s ceremony on GMC – formerly the Gospel Music Channel – was its highest-rated ever, with more than 1.5 million viewers.
The 43rd Annual Dove Awards will take place in April 2012, but a venue has not yet been determined.
