NASHVILLE, TN – The 5th annual We Love Christian Music Awards were recorded live at TBN Studios in Hendersonville, TN on February 2 and featured a lineup of performers and presenters from some of today’s most popular Christian artists. Among them was 2015 Next Big Thing winner, Spencer Kane. Nominated for Male Artist, Indie Artist and Most Influential Artist of the Year, the 20 year old Pop R&B solo artist and current member of the renowned band Anthem Lights, swept the categories garnering the most fan votes in each.
“Being known as an independent artist has many challenges versus those who are signed to a major label, but times like this remind me how much fans can really make a difference,” said Kane. “I know there are a lot of fans that listen to my music, but when the world’s largest Christian music website nominates you and the fans respond with overwhelming votes, it is pretty humbling,” he added.
The We Love Christian Music Awards is the only fan based vote award event of it’s kind in the Christian Music Industry. The traditional Gospel Music Association (GMA) holds annual awards called The Dove Awards to honor the most outstanding artists and producers in the Christian and Gospel Music Industry. The nominees and winners are all chosen by GMA members. While the Dove Awards are similar to the Grammys, the We Love Christian Music Awards would be the equal to the People’s Choice Awards.
“Spencer is such an unusual artist in the business. He maintains his full time role in the Anthem Lights band and yet still produces and releases his own music as a solo artist. Apart from the great quality of his 2016 album KANE, we felt that his overall work in both Anthem Lights and as a solo artist deserved a nomination in the Male Artist and Indie Artist categories this year,” stated We Love Award founder, Kevin McNeese.
Kane continues to release music apart from Anthem Lights, but tours nationally with the band as well as alone for his solo work. When not involved in music, he may be seen on television or on the big screen acting. He resides in Nashville and plans to release a new EP in late 2017.

2016 YEAR IN REVIEW

This year has been crazy busy, but all in a good way. Just a recap of all that happened in 2016.


  • Announced my joining Anthem Lights in February.
    • Have built lifetime brother relationships with all of them and regret nothing about joining.
  • Went on the Millennial Tour in 6 U.S. states and 4 of the Hawaiian Islands
  • Did the music festival circuit this past summer.
  • God's Not Dead 2 (FILM) was released and was my debut big screen appearance.
  • Released my first full length studio album project in July called "KANE" (available on iTunes/Spotify)
  • Was blessed to see Anthem Lights have two videos go viral with each having over 20 million views (first time ever in the history of Anthem).
  • Moved into my first apartment back in June and now live in Nashville, Tennessee.
  • Have recorded some amazing new cover songs with producers I've met in Nashville who are insanely talented.
  • Was contacted by MTV about my MERCY cover and it is up for COVER OF THE MONTH for December 2016.
  • Was notified by WE LOVE AWARDS that I was nominated for BEST MALE ARTIST and INDIE ARTIST OF THE YEAR award (voting ends Jan 27).
Like anything in the music industry, it's incredibly hard work that requires a lot of commitment, energy and willingness to overcome rejection. I love what I do, I love my fans, and I love being able to create something that reaches so many people in a positive way.

Thank you all for an amazing 2016 and I can't wait for ya'll to see what's in store for 2017. Be ready.

KANE TRAIN STREET TEAM (2017)

The street team has been working together since early 2014 and we've had a great success in the closest of my fans helping me with a lot of things in my career. More importantly, we have a true family that have become my inner circle, and I'm so grateful.

My career has grown over time and so has the effort of the street team. We need more volunteers to keep up to speed with the many projects that happen.

There's basically TWO ways you can help by joining. The first is called our

A - TEAM
