Now he takes the stage himself at the Dove Awards show carrying an armload of nominations that have followed his own smash hit single, My Savior, My God.
Aaron’s debut release, Anything Worth Saying, sold over 140,000 copies in the last year while My Savior, My God was downloaded over 85,000 times on iTunes and maintained the #1 spot on the Web site’s Inspirational chart for more than three months. With more radio airplay than any other song in 2006, My Savior, My God topped several radio charts and was named the #1 Song of the Year across multiple formats.
Even as everything was changing due to his overnight success, Aaron set to work on his anticipated sophomore release, Whispered and Shouted. Though the songwriting process was sometimes challenging amid a whirlwind of media interviews, tour dates, and meet-and-greets, Aaron remained focused on writing songs that lead people to worship Christ more deeply.
