To kick of the K-LOVE Fan Awards Weekend, fans came from all over the country to the Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tenn. beginning on Friday afternoon to participate in concerts, breakout sessions, a songwriter showcase and artist autograph signings, as well as K-LOVE's 5K, Run For Love, in partnership with the Hands and Feet Project. The weekend gave fans the chance to interact with some of their favorite artists, building anticipation for last Sunday's event.
Unique to this year, the K-LOVE Fan Awards partnered with the Military Warriors Support Foundation (MWSF). All votes for this year's awards went towards placing a combat wounded hero or Gold Star spouse into a move-in ready, mortgage-free home. Before the awards show, heroes from the MWSF and their families walked the red carpet alongside some of their favorite artists.
