Carrie Underwood Wins Dove Award with CeCe Winans

Congrats to Carrie Underwood – she along with CeCe Winans won Inspirational Recorded Song Of The Year for their “Great Is Thy Faithfulness” at the 52nd GMA Dove Awards.

“Great Is Thy Faithfulness” is one of the 13 tracks on Carrie’s My Savior album that came out at the beginning of 2021.

Carrie recalls that day when CeCe came into record “Great Is They Faithfulness”, “I feel like one thing I will never forget about the day CeCe and I recorded ‘Great Is Thy Faithfulness ‘ together is when she walked in she was like ‘oh, thank you for having me’ I was like ‘Oh my gosh, thank you so much for coming.’ And she’s like ‘I love this song so much,’ and she said, ‘because he IS faithful.’ And obviously she has this incredible gift from God and uses it, you know, to give back to God, but for her to come in and just like, “Oh my gosh, you believe what you’re singing.’ It sounds so silly to say that. Of course, you should, but then to hear that it’s just like ‘Oh, yes, yeah.’ So, getting to work with her and feel the power that she has in her voice, it was just such a beautiful day and just she’s a light in the world and in music and to me in the studio she certainly was that day.”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
