The 35th Annual GMA Music Awards (the show had a name change in 2004-05) were held on April 28, 2004 recognizing accomplishments of musicians for the year 2003. The show was held at the Municipal Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, and was hosted by Deion Sanders and Yolanda Adams.[1]

Nominations were announced months earlier by Steven Curtis Chapman and Toby McKeehan.[2]

The event was transmitted live to theaters in 50 cities as part of Regal Entertainment Group "One Night Only" event. The livecast was shown at Regal Cinemas, United Artists Theatres, and Edwards Theatres.[1] There was no delayed television broadcast, as part of a controversial move by broadcast rights holder United Paramount Network, scorned by Sanders for leaving CBS' The NFL Today (UPN owned CBS) in favour of Disney's NFL Countdown in the weeks between the awards ceremony and broadcast date, cancelled the television broadcast entirely.[citation needed]

MercyMe won Artist of the Year, plus two other awards, while Jeremy Camp was awarded New Artist of the Year.
