Today was Who Knew Wednesday on the Afternoon Drive and I focused on our artists.

I shared several stories behind the songs from some of your favorite artists, and I also gave you some of the results from the 2016 Dove Awards that took place last night.

Lauren Daigle was the big winner of the night, taking home the awards for Artist of the Year and Pop/Contemporary Recorded Song Of The Year for Trust In You. You can find the complete list of winners over here.

Our word of the day was opuscule (ō-ˈpəs-(ˌ)kyül), a noun meaning a small or petty work. You can read more on that here.
