Red: Dove is as good as a Grammy

Red won a Dove Award for Rock Album of the Year, and ear­lier this year the band went to the Gram­my Awards as it was nom­i­nat­ed for Best Rock or Rap Gospel Album. But the band said the Doves are just as mean­ing­ful as the Gram­mys.

Doesn’t mat­ter Dove or Gram­my we’re just as excit­ed to win a Dove. It’s just the Gram­mys are more rec­og­nized,” the band said. “We were in a cat­e­go­ry (for the Doves) with some heavy hit­ters. We were like, ‘Wow, the GMA got it right with all the­se rock­ers.’ As Chris­tian rock­ers we are try­ing to push our­selves on the indus­try. The Dove Awards have always been known for con­tem­po­rary rock, so for us to per­form live on the show tonight is a huge step for Chris­tian rock.”

The band talked about the Gram­my expe­ri­ence. “We were at the after par­ty hang­ing with Lee­land and John May­er comes by and says ‘What are you guys here for?’” And in a sheep­ish tone the guys say “Chris­tian music cat­e­goy,” but May­er replied, “Hey you guys are here.”

It was a great feel­ing.”

Red’s next project will fea­ture a cov­er of a Duran Duran song, but they didn’t reveal which tune they will do.
