sixstepsrecords’ Matt Redman won a total of two GRAMMY® Awards last night at the 55th Annual GRAMMY® Awards in Los Angeles. Hailed as one of the most influential songwriters of this generation, Redman picked up his first GRAMMY® Awards yesterday—one as an artist, one as a songwriter—winning in the category of Best Gospel/Contemporary Christian Music Performance in addition to 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 on Christian Radio in 2012.
Redman’s song “10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord)” continues to impact listeners all around the globe. As his first No. 1 single and with its impressive four-month residency at No. 1, “10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord)” was honored with two GRAMMY® nominations in the categories for Best Contemporary Christian Music Song and Best Gospel/Contemporary Christian Music Performance. In addition to the song nominations, Redman received a third GRAMMY® nod this year for Best Contemporary Christian Music Song as a songwriter on the song, “White Flag.”
In addition, sixstepsrecords received an additional nomination with internationally acclaimed worship leader Chris Tomlin’s nod for his songwriting contribution to “White Flag,” nominated for Best Contemporary Christian Music Song. His eighth GRAMMY® nomination, Tomlin co-wrote “White Flag” with Jason Ingram, Matt Maher and Redman. The song is from the live album Passion:White Flag, but also appears on the 2012 GRAMMY® winner’s recent Billboard 200 chart-topping album, Burning Lights.
