    Francesca Battistelli has been nominated for a 2016 Grammy Award for “Holy Spirit,” the third nomination she’s garnered in two years from her breakthrough 2014 album If We’re Honest.     

    Battistelli was nominated for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song for the track that spent 15 consecutive weeks at No. 1 and topped 5 radio charts simultaneously over the summer, becoming Battistelli’s third consecutive No. 1 following “Write Your Story” and “He Knows My Name.”

    "It's a huge honor to be nominated for another Grammy! I'm beyond thankful that this album has had so much life--to be nominated a second year in a row for the same project is incredibly rewarding.”

    The Grammy Awards will be presented Feb. 15 in Los Angeles. This is Battistelli’s fourth nomination overall. She is currently on the road for The Third Annual Francesca Battistelli Christmas Tour, which resumes Thursday in Newnan. Georgia.

    The tour will wrap up an amazing year for Battistelli, who is expecting her third child in March. She was voted Female Artist of the Year at the KLOVE Fan Awards last spring, received her first Billboard Music Awards nomination, took three more nods at the 2015 Dove Awards and has had a song at the top of the radio charts for 19 weeks this calendar year.

    So, I promised you all these fantastic photos of me with the other artists at Winter Jam.  And guess what?  I DIDN'T GET ANY.  Except for the extremely flattering picture above of me dancing onstage with Family Force 5 on the last night with about 75 other people from the tour. So there's that... :)
     
    Here are some other recent shots that I thought you might like to see.  Enjoy! 
     
    We took the kids to see the ducks at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis on their last day of the tour.  
     
    These are my band guys.  They love scooters.  And coffee.  And they are cool.
     
    Here they are again.  We apparently only wear the color black.
     
    Here are my kiddos in their For King and Country gear.  "Give me your best cool faces, guys." ;)
     
    Rehearsals for the Bible Tour (which launched last week) started a few days after Winter Jam ended.
     
    On Easter Sunday, I had the honor of playing the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville with Steven Curtis Chapman, Jason Crabb, Charles Esten, The Fairfield Four, The Mcrary Sisters, and Colony House.  It was an incredible night!
     
    It was so special to have some of my best girls there!  Jodi, Jaime, and Lindsay, I love y'all so much! 
     
    I can't believe the tour is over.  It was an incredible 3 months.  Winter Jam is truly one of the best tours in the world, and I'm so thankful I've had the chance to be a part of it three different times.  The ministry that goes on each night and the stories that we hear are incredible.  God moved in a mighty way all across the country, and its an honor to have been a small part of that. 
     
    With WJ ending and Bible Tour starting immediately (and having one of the busiest routing schedules ever), I've been really slow on getting you posts.  Add to that real life, motherhood, and Blogger issues, and it's been rough.  Thanks for sticking with me as I get in the swing of things, and please keep reading!  Love you guys!  
     
    Francesca
