NBC / Bravo reality TV star, award-winning Gospel/Jazz pianist and private pilot,  Ben Tankard, continues to soar with a Full Tank  to new flight levels with his recent Dove Award nomination for Best Instrumental CD Full Tank 2.0 and the release of his new self help book:  The Full Tank Life: Fuel Your Dreams, Ignite Your Destiny.  Available in hardback, paperback, ebook and audiobook versions on August 30, The Full Tank Life is published by FaithWords / Hachette Publishing, also the literary home for New York Times best-selling authors Joel Osteen, Joyce Meyer, and Bishop T.D. Jakes.

“This is exciting! I feel so honored to be nominated by my music peers for yet another Dove Award,” Tankard says.

The nationally televised  GMA Dove Awards is Gospel music’s biggest night of the year, featuring top artists from the many different genres of Gospel and Christian music. Hosted this year by Tye Tribbett and For King and Country, the evening of music and celebration held at Allen Arena on Tuesday, October 11, 2016.

“I am equally excited about this new chapter in my career with my partnership with FaithWords and the release of  my new book which I believe will help readers get their dreams out of neutral and in gear for Destiny,” Tankard explains.  “One of the key principles taught in my book is how to Self-Align by 7:59.  This simply means to take charge of your day like the super successful and accomplish more BEFORE 7:59am than many people accomplish in a full day.”

These early morning steps include:  A) Pray and Praise.  B) Exercise and Eat.  C) Read and Reflect.  D) Dream and Direct.
