Since it doesn’t look like I’m going to be able to swing attending the Dove Awards in person, and I don’t get Gospel Music Channel with U-verse, my only option for live coverage may be XM Radio.

Now, I just need to get me an XM radio and account. Why is it I just never seem to have exactly what I need? Anyone else out there reading with an XM radio? What are the other Christian music options available to you throughout the year?
