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/.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
