Herms, who won producer of the year in 2009, is up for that award again. He's joined by Haun, an 11-time winner looking for his first major individual award, and Ingram, who won two Dove Awards in 2009, including best song.
Jars of Clay has won 13 Dove Awards previously, but hasn't broken through since 2007. And Crabb, who's also up for male vocalist, country album and country song, is seeking his first win as a solo artist.
Battistelli said, "It's crazy -- Toby and Jason Crabb, and all these great artists who I've looked up to and known their music for years ... I'm still kind of like, wait, are you sure they didn't make a mistake? But it's exciting."
Maher, a worship leader whose music is grabbing attention, was this year's breakthrough nominee.
His second album, "Alive Again," is up for worship album and he received two nominations for worship song of the year.
