Carrie Underwood is continuing to pick up accolades for her spring 2021 faith-based album, My Savior. 

The project is nominated in two categories at the Gospel Music Association’s upcoming Dove Awards ceremony. My Savior is in the running for Best Bluegrass/Country/Roots Album of the Year. Carrie’s duet with gospel mainstay CeCe Winans, Great Is Thy Faithfulness,” also scored a nod in the Inspirational Recorded Song of the Year category. 

When she released My Savior, Carrie explained that the track list — a variety of traditional hymns — was her way of connecting with the essentials of faith-based music and introducing classic songs to a new generation. 

“Hymns and gospel music have shaped me as an artist because those were the first things I sang. I think that was just a great foundation for me now as an artist,” she pointed out.

My Savior has since gone on to achieve considerable success in the country realm, too. It debuted at number-one on the Billboard Country Chart, becoming Carrie’s ninth consecutive release to do so. 

My Savior also topped the Billboard Christian Albums chart and hit top five on the all-genre Billboard 200. 

The 2021 GMA Dove Awards will take place on October 19.
