Five-Time GRAMMY® Winner TobyMac Continues Whirlwind Year
with First Ever American Music Award
It’s been quite a year for five-time GRAMMY® Award winner TobyMac
with his new album EYE ON IT
hitting No. 1 on the overall Billboard Top 200, multiple national television appearances including Fox & Friends, Good Morning America and The View and featured media spotlights in Billboard Magazine, Los Angeles Times, People Magazine and Time.com
, among others. Now, to add to his whirlwind year, TobyMac has garnered his first career American Music Award. The multi-platinum selling artist received the award for Favorite Artist in the Contemporary/Inspirational
category last night at the 40th annual American Music Awards
. The annual award show was broadcasted live from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. and for the sixth year, fans determined the winners by voting online.
When learning he had won the award before his Winter Jam set in Fresno, TobyMac said, “This is my first AMA! I still can’t believe it. It is so meaningful to me because the people I’m thinking about when I’m writing these songs are the ones who vote. Thank YOU guys from the bottom of my heart!
TobyMac just wrapped-up headlining the Winter Jam West Coast Tour and will kick-off his “HITS DEEP” tour the last week of November. Joining him on the tour are Chris August, Jamie Grace, Group 1 Crew, Brandon Heath, Mandisa and Britt Nicole who will perform some of their hit songs in an exciting night of music. TobyMac will headline the Winter Jam East Coast Tour beginning in January 2013. For more information on his upcoming schedule, visit http://www.tobymac.com/tour/.
