The K-LOVE Fan Awards took place Friday night at Nashville's iconic Grand Ole Opry and was hosted by Grammy award winner Matthew West.

Like many other award shows, the night is dedicated to giving fans the opportunity to choose and honor their favorites in Christian music.

Zach Williams was one of last night's big winners, taking home the award for Male Artist of the Year and Song of the Year for his duet, "There Was Jesus" with country music icon Dolly Parton.

Williams said he was shocked, but honored to win the awards especially after being away from fans for over a year during the pandemic.

For King & Country was named Artist of the Year and Group of the Year. In an Instagram post, Australian-born brothers Joel and Luke Smallbone thanked their fans for their love and support.
