Anne Wilson and Katy Nicole have both been nominated for Favourite Inspirational Artist, alongside For King and Country, Matthew West and Phil Wickham. 

Ms Wilson's song My Jesus was released in April 2021, which climbed to Number one, which was part of her first album. 

Ms Wilson wrote in a Twitter post: "I am so incredibly honored to be nominated for Favorite Inspirational Artist at the 
@AMAs this year!!! 

"It has been amazing bringing you all on this journey with me, you are the reason I am able to share His grace and love and I couldn’t be more grateful."

Ms Wilson has already been nominated for six dove awards, with the award ceremony coming up in just a few days time on the 19th October 2022.

This is where she will find out which categories she might win, she is nominated for Song of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, New Artist of the Year, Pop/Contemporary Recorded Song of the Year, Bluegrass/Country/Roots Recorded Song of the Year, and Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year.

Ms Nicole's song, In Jesus' Name, was released less than 10 months ago. She released her debut EP, simply titled Katy Nichole, this summer. 

"This is unreal. What an honor to be nominated for the AMAs," Nichole wrote on Instagram. "I am so incredibly grateful and never could've imagined this in my wildest dreams."

Ms Nicole included in her post "#GodisGod and #jesusisking"

The award ceremony will air live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. This year's show will mark the 50th American Music Awards show.
