Nashville, Tenn. (October 8, 2014) - And the winner is...Nathan Stanley!!! Last night at the prestigious Gospel Music Association's annual Dove awards, Nathan Stanley was awarded "Bluegrass Album of the Year" for his 2014 release Every Mile. Every Mile, produced by Terry Thompson, features collaborations with Vince Gill on "Hand in Hand with Jesus," a duet with his legendary grandfather Dr. Ralph Stanley, along with Sonya Isaacs Yeary & Becky Isaacs Bowman, Jeff & Sheri Easter, T. Graham Brown & Judy Marshall, Jeff Bates, Wes Hampton, and Adam Crabb.
"I am truly honored!," says Nathan Stanley. "This was my first Dove nomination. I cannot express how thrilled I am to have won this award, not just for me, but for my papaw. He has paved the way for so many including me. Having him on this album was special enough, but to now share a Dove award with him takes it to another place. I want to thank everyone who played a part in making this happen. Most of all, I give all of the praise and glory to my lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Without him, this would not have been possible."
