2011 Billboard Music Awards Winners!

2011 Grammys
I wrote a post about a month ago letting you all know about this year's Billboard Music Awards. The awards are given to the songs, albums, and artists that excelled the best on the Billboard. Not surprisingly, Chris Tomlin, Skillet, tobyMac, and MercyMe were some of the nominees in the three Christian music categories-Top Christian Artist, Top Christian Album, and Top Christian Song. Two nights ago, those awards were handed out, and here is the list of the winners and nominees for the three Christian categories.

Top Christian Artist 
Chris Tomlin-Winner
Casting Crowns

Top Christian Song
"Our God" by Chris Tomlin-Winner
"Live Like We're Dying" by Kris Allen
"All of Creation" by MercyMe
"Lead Me" by Sanctus Real
"Get Back Up" by tobyMac

Top Christian Album
Awake by Skillet-Winner
The Generous Mr. Lovewell by MercyMe
Tonight by tobyMac
And If Our God Is For Us... by Chris Tomlin
Wow Hits 2011 by Various Artists

Overall, I am very glad with the outcome. Chris Tomlin definitely deserved the awards he won, and with the success of Skillet's album Awake which stayed in the Billboard 200 for over a year after its release, there is no question that Skillet had earned the album award. To view the entire awards list as well as finalist and nominees, go to Billboard.Com.
