Slugs & Bugs, Vol. 4 Gets Dove Award Nomination!
Sing the Bible Vol. 4, the latest release in Randall Goodgame’s immensely popular Slugs & Bugs series, was nominated by the 52nd Annual GMA Dove Awards on August 11 for Children’s Album of the Year.
The album was released earlier this year and features songs on the theme of “family discipleship.”
“Every parent I know sometimes struggles to lead their children into discipleship.” Goodgame explains, “largely because we all struggle to be faithful disciples. I hope this record provides a joyful way for parents and kids to grow and celebrate following Jesus together."
With 37 passages on 13 word-for-word Scripture songs, Sing the Bible Vol. 4 serves as a fun, memorable resource to help families memorize Scripture and start meaningful conversations around how to follow Jesus as a family.
Highlights include toe-tappers like “This Is the Message!” (feat. Lakiesha Williams) and “Two Are Better than One,” (featuring fellow children’s music act Rain For Roots), as well as the inspirational ballad “Micah 6:8.” Goodgame also brings in his signature humor and whimsy with tracks like “The Ox,” a funny and surprisingly moving presentation of Proverbs 14:4, featuring delightful children’s narration.
Coinciding with the release of The Slugs & Bugs Show (Season 2), Sing the Bible Vol. 4 also features performances from beloved puppet characters Doug the Slug and Sparky the Lightning Bug as well as Miss Carla the delivery lady. The album also introduces a new robot character named “Robort” that unwittingly helps teach the Fruit of the Spirit.
Sing the Bible Vol. 4 is produced by Ben Shive (Amy Grant, MercyMe, Keith Getty) and features brilliant musical performances by world-class Nashville musicians in 14 all-new tracks. The album is available now on CD at slugsandbugs.com, streaming at Spotify and Apple Music, and digital download at slugsandbugs.com and iTunes, amongst others.
The winner of Children’s Album of the Year will be announced at the 52nd Annual GMA Dove Awards on October 19, 2021. Other nominees for this category include Living Color from Elevation Church Kids, Read Set Go by Yancy & Little Praise Party, No Reason to Wait by Worship Together Kids, and Todos Mis Días by Gateway Kids Worship.
