Redman, TobyMac top at Doves

– Singer-songwriter Matt Redman won a leading six trophies Tuesday night at the Dove Awards, and TobyMac was named artist of the year at a ceremony that reflected his growing influence.

Redman, who did not attend, used his song “10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)” to rule the Gospel Music Association’s 44th annual Christian music awards, winning songwriter of the year and song of the year.

It was TobyMac’s second artist of the year award on his seventh nomination in the category and his first since 2008. The gospel hip-hop artist won a total of four awards to bring his career total to 18, including pop-contemporary album “Eye On It” and short-form video for the title song. He performed that song at the top of the awards with a drum corps and a yellow and black candy-striped cane.

A short time later, the Doves honored rapper Lecrae, who won rap/hip-hop album and song of the year, and his protegés Trip Lee, KB and Andy, who performed their rap song “One Sixteen.”
