Gotee Records' Ryan Stevenson has received his first RIAA Gold Certified single as an artist for his record-breaking song, "Eye of the Storm." This impactful song features GabeReal of TobyMac's DiverseCity Band and was co-written by producer Bryan Fowler (TobyMac, Chris Tomlin). 

"My heart is full," shares Ryan Stevenson upon receiving his first artist RIAA Gold single. "I'm thankful for the success and impact of this song, but as I looked around the room last night and into the eyes of everyone who has been on this journey with me, I was reminded that the most important aspect of life are the people we get to live it out with. I consider myself a very blessed guy to be able to say that my team is my family. I am thankful for all of you - you have enriched my life in such a beautiful way. Also a HUGE thanks to all of my radio fam around the country for your support and encouragement."

"Eye of the Storm" was No. 1 for 16 total weeks in 2016 including nine weeks at Billboard's Christian Airplay/Audience and 14 consecutive weeks at Billboard's Christian AC and was listed as the No. 2 Billboard Christian AC song of 2016. The song also won a Dove Award for Christian Pop Contemporary Song of the Year in 2017 and was also nominated for two 2017 K-LOVE Fan Awards as well as a 2017 Billboard Music Award for "Top Christian Song."

"Being a part of this song is one our proudest moments in the 25 year history at the label," shares Brad Moist, A&R of Gotee Records. "The impact this song has had and is still having is an incredible thing to see. While it still receives airplay every week at Christian radio and more than 750k streams/views a week across just AppleMusic, Pandora, Spotify and YouTube, seeing footage of kids in a school hallway singing it during Hurricane Florence and hearing it being used in VBS curriculum last summer speaks to the longevity and lasting impression this song is having." 

Stevenson joins an elite group of new Christian Contemporary Artists in the last five years, such as Lauren Daigle, Zach Williams, Tauren Wells, Danny Gokey and Jordan Feliz, who have received RIAA Gold Certifications in the past year. His latest single, "With Lifted Hands" became his fourth consecutive Top 10 Billboard Christian Airplay radio single. In May, he released a special acoustic version that features Martin Smith formerly of Delirous? (here).  

This year, Stevenson has toured with TobyMac on the Hits Deep Tour and will head out this fall with the Newsboys. He is also now represented by booking agency CAA.
