It was announced earlier this week that Centricity Music's Lauren Daigle has been nominated for three Billboard Music Awards: Top Christian Artist, Top Christian Album (How Can It Be) and Top Christian Song ("Trust In You"). No stranger to the BBMA's, Daigle won last year for Top Christian Album (How Can It Be), which is nominated again this year, and this is the second consecutive year for Daigle to be nominated for Top Christian Artist.
The Billboard Music Awards will be broadcast live from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 21, 2017 at 8pm ET/5pm PT on ABC. According to Billboard, the BBMA nominees are based on key fan interactions with music, including album and digital songs sales, streaming, radio airplay, touring and social engagement. These measurements are tracked year-round by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Music and Next Big Sound. The awards are based on the reporting period of March 18, 2016 through March 16, 2017.
