2022 K-LOVE Fan Awards: Male Artist of the Year Nominees

The six fine men who round out this year’s Male Artist of the Year category take their craft very seriously. All of them have headlined big tours this year, and all of them have released songs that have captivated audiences with both word and melody. From debuting brand new full-length projects to riding high on a string of memorable singles, these gentlemen are certified hitmakers. But only one of them will take home the award for Male Artist of the Year; and it will, ultimately, be up to the fans to choose the winner.

Hosted by @Matthew West and @Tauren Wells, the 2022 K-LOVE Fan Awards will air exclusively on TBN Friday, June 3, 2022, at 8 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. CT / 5 p.m. PT.
