Award-winning Jeff & Sheri Easter Garner

Two 2016 DOVE Award Wins
 GRAMMY® -nominated Group Honored for Album and Song at the 47th Annual GMA DOVE Awards
NASHVILLE, Tenn.—October 14th, 2016—Two-time GRAMMY® nominated and multi-award-winning Jeff & Sheri Easter were honored with two 2016 GMA DOVE Award wins at this year’s awards ceremony held Tuesday evening at Lipscomb University’s Allen Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.
 
The group took home award honors for Bluegrass/Country Album of the Year for Small Town, Celebrating 30 Years of Music & Marriage (Spring Hill Music) as well as Country Recorded Song of the Year  for their No. 1 radio hit “Small Town Someone (Lunch), written by Sheri Easter, Kenna Turner West and Jason Cox.
 
“It’s
so exciting to receive something like this for our celebratory 30th
anniversary project,” stated Sheri.  “The entire project is about the
simple offering of oneself to God’s work and watching how He multiplies
those gifts into something big. I’m so grateful after all these years
that our music still touches lives!”
 
The Small Town recording, produced by Jeff and Sheri Easter, Madison Easter and Greg Cole, features 11 songs, several of which were co-written by Sheri along with some of Nashville’s most noted songwriters. 
 
“To
receive a DOVE Award for a song I’ve written WITH Sheri is one of the
greatest honors of my career,” stated acclaimed songwriter Kenna Turner
West.  “Fifteen years ago I was a new songwriter at Spring Hill, and
Jeff and Sheri Easter recorded my first cut.  That song became my first
single, my first No. 1 hit and my first DOVE Award nomination,
ironically in the same category as this win.  To be able to write WITH
Sheri for their group after all these years and to have this song be
received like it has been this year from the No. 1 song to this DOVE
Award is one of the greatest moments of my career.  It is indeed an
honor.”
 
Small Town Celebrating 30 Years of Music & Marriage is exclusively distributed by Capitol Christian Distribution and Universal Music
 
Jeff & Sheri are the recipients of eight GMA DOVE Awards, 15 Singing News Fan

Association Awards and two International Country Gospel Music
Association honors.
