The 2016 Grammys Awards has come and gone and the memories will linger till this time next year, when we see another. Here at Gospotainment we concern our selves with the Gospel and Contemporary Christian Category . Though the Nominations included some new comers like Travis Greene, Jonathan McReynolds and Brain Courtney, the old folks still took most of the award home.
