Maverick City Music wins New Artist of the Year and Album of the Year at 2021 Stellar Awards


Stellar Awards


A good gospel playlist should offer variety. You have your classics, Kirk Franklin, Donnie McClurkin, and Yolanda Adams. Then you mix some new school Koryn Hawthorne, Wande, and of course Lecrae. However, if you have not added Maverick City to your playlist yet, what are you doing?

Maverick City is a unique gospel group that is on a mission to bring a new sound and vibe into the gospel industry. They go against the grain or away from the herd to make sure the uplifting worship music of God is heard. The group received 11 Stellar Award nominations. The Stellar Awards named this dynamic group New Artist of the Year and Album of the Year.

These honorable awards follow their June music release of ‘Jubilee: Juneteenth Edition.’ The album featured artist such as Ciara, Jonathon McReynolds, Tamar Braxton, and many others. Maverick City has been continuously topping the charts and broke streaming records at Apple and Spotify for their newest album release of ‘Old Church Basement,’ in collaboration with Elevation Worship.

There is no slowing down for this group as they are set to tour 13 locations and select concerts will feature Lecrae. Make sure you see when they will be in a city near you. If you want to see their performance of “Jireh” tune into BET on August 1st at 8:00 pm/5:00 pm to catch their Stellar Awards performance.
