Doves in Hotlanta
The Dove awards are or will soon be underway in Atlanta. I guess now we’ll know what Nashville looks like without a Christian music industry, if only for a day.
I’m sure I’ll have some post-awards wrap-up to offer by Friday, but in the meantime I leave you with this salient thought on awards:
[Professional awards] are less, it seems to me, a true measure of quality. What they are is what most awards are: a reflection of a professional elite’s view of who is respectable and who isn’t. It’s about reputation, and safety, not quality and risk.
Except, of course, when the people and work we like win. Then it’s about excellence rising to the top.
Anyway, comments particularly welcome from those
enduring enjoying the show live.
