haha Yeah, i could guess who you wanted to win in some of those categories, cause once I saw toby's name, I knew that you'd pick him. :D

Well tobyMac is the artist I am really going for to win at the Dove Awards. But there is a lot of other good nominees and albums this year. It should be a good Dove Awards. I just hope tobyMac wins since he has a lot of nominations :)
