Nashville, TN- "Hidden Heroes," recorded by the Talleys, is the winner of the 2015 GMA Dove Award for Southern Gospel Song Of The Year.
This is the second time the Talleys have won for Southern Gospel Song of the Year in their storied career; "He Is Here" took home the trophy in 1992. The award is the first for writers Dixie and Sharon Phillips, who won the Singing News Amateur Songwriting Contest with "Hidden Heroes" in 2013. The Talleys recorded the song on their "Test of Time" recording, the first cut by a nationally known artist for the songwriting sisters-in-law.
'"Hidden Heroes" is a special song for many reasons, but it means a lot to us because my papaw cared for my mamaw the last ten years of her life as she battled Alzheimer's," Lauren Talley says. "We want those who are caring for loved ones with Alzheimer's and special needs to know that God sees every second of the sacrifices made, and that what they do is important."
The Talleys also performed their number one hit, "Searchin'" in the Dove Awards telecast with the Erwins as part of a special segment featuring the best in Southern Gospel music.
The Dove Awards air on TBN Sunday evening, October 18 at 10 pm ET/9 pm CT.
