Capitol Christian Music Group celebrated triple wins with ForeFront records’ TobyMac and sixstepsrecords/Sparrow Records’ Matt Redman at last weekend’s 55th annual GRAMMY® Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
TobyMac added to the whirlwind success of his latest release "Eye On It," which took home the award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album. This marks the former dcTalk frontman’s second GRAMMY® as a solo artist and his sixth career win. The award comes after the album’s impressive debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 and iTunes® Overall Album charts and following his first American Music Award win.
Hailed as one of the most influential songwriters of this generation, Matt Redman picked up his very first GRAMMY® Award as an artist, winning in the category of Best Gospel/Contemporary Christian Music Performance in addition to a second GRAMMY® for Best Contemporary Christian Music Song for his hugely popular hit, "10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord)."
Written by Redman along with songwriter Jonas Myrin, the song made an impressive 16-week run at No. 1 at Christian Radio. Redman is a songwriter for Capitol CMG Publishing and Jonas Myrin for Hillsong/Shout Publishing.
“We are so grateful and excited to see the work of our artists honored at this year's Grammy Awards,” comments Peter York, President, Capitol CMG Label Group. “Our sincere congratulations to TobyMac and Matt Redman for their Grammys and to all who were nominated from our family of labels. These awards also reflect the collective efforts of many talented songwriters, producers, musicians and the hard working teams who support the careers of these artists. To all, our sincere congratulations!”
