Dove Award: Colton Dixon wins Rock/Contemporary Album of the Year

Colton Dixon’s 2014 release ANCHOR was presented with the award for Rock/Contemporary Album of the Year during the sold-out 46th Annual Dove Awards at Lipscomb University. This is Dixon’s second time winning Rock/Contemporary Album of the Year as he took home the award in 2013 for his debut album, A Messenger.

“Absolutely shocked and honored to accept this award,” Dixon said. “Beyond blessed by the people that surround me daily in this industry as well as my family who’ve been my support system from the beginning. I’m ecstatic that we get to do what we do for the King!!!!”

Following the success of ANCHOR, Dixon recently released dual EPs Calm and Storm, which catapulted to the top of the iTunes Christian Albums Chart as Calm took the No. 1 spot. Storm was close behind, landing in the chart’s top six albums. The two EPs also combined to create The Calm Before The Storm, available in physical format only.

Dixon is currently touring alongside GRAMMY® Award winner TobyMac on his ***THIS IS NOT A TEST*** Tour and recently announced he will continue touring in 2016 on TobyMac’s Hits Deep Tour.

Last month, Dixon got engaged to girlfriend Annie Coggeshall at Walt Disney World. The surprise announcement was picked up by People, Brides, OK! Magazine and more. Last night’s ceremony was their first red carpet appearance together after their engagement.
