“Honestly, I thought about playing it cool and saying something about being humbled and honored, but that’s just not me. I am freaking out and rightly so,” shares Asbury. “This song has meant so much to me, so to see it land with The Recording Academy as well is extremely meaningful. Huge congrats to Lauren, Joel and Luke, Tauren and Bart as well.”
The notably covered track was dually released by fellow GRAMMY® acclaimed artists Israel Houghton, Michael W. Smith & more. “Reckless Love” was named Song of the Year and Worship Song of the Year at the 49th Annual GMA Dove Awards. The track also placed well in Billboard’s Year-End Charts claiming the No. 1 spot on the Hot Christian Songs, Christian Airplay Songs and Christian Digital Song Sales Charts and No. 3 on the Christian Streaming Songs Chart.
