April 24, 2009…Nashville, TN…sixstepsrecords welcomes seven awards at this year’s 40th Annual Dove Awards, which were held at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville and broadcast LIVE on Gospel Music Channel.

Passion: God Of This City featured all sixstepsrecords’ artists: Chris Tomlin, David Crowder* Band, Charlie Hall, Matt Redman, Christy Nockels and Kristian Stanfill.. Each of the artists received a Dove Award for their involvement on this record.
“Last night was a special night for us as a label family, both seeing others we love and respect being recognized for their contributions to God's unfolding story and the Dove nod for Passion: God Of This City,” said Louie Giglio, Passion and sixstepsrecords founder and director. “The album win was a huge surprise, and a great honor to our artists and the movement which carried the hope of the title track, ‘greater things have yet to come’, to the cities and students of the nation and world during the recent Passion World Tour.”
Leading Dove nominee, Chris Tomlin takes home two awards for Best Gospel Recorded Song “How Great Is Our God” and for his participation in Passion: God Of This City.
