2011 Grammy Award Christian Music Nominees

This list covers the gospel categories only as announced on Wednesday  and does not include Christian nominees in other categories

Note:  This required a lot of editing and time did not permit readjusting the spacing;  the green name or title, followed by space and then additional credits constitute a single entry.   If someone wants to re-edit this and e-mail the HTML, I’ll repost it.
