Capitol CMG Label Group is proud to announce that singer/songwriter Matthew West was awarded the American Music Award for Best Contemporary Inspirational Artist. Held last night at Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre, the American Music Awards are determined by the fans through online voting. When the nominations were announced last month, Capitol CMG swept the category as West was nominated for this category along with labelmates TobyMac and Chris Tomlin. Attending the ceremony with his wife Emily, this was West's first time to be nominated for an AMA. 

"What an honor to receive the AMA award this year!" West shares. "The fact that this is a fan voted award makes it even more meaningful, and I'm grateful for all of the people who have made my songs part of their lives."

"Capitol CMG is extremely proud of Matthew on receiving his first American Music Award," states Peter York, President, Capitol CMG Label Group. "We could not be more excited for Matthew, along with his fellow nominees Chris Tomlin and TobyMac, as they each represent such a vital part of the Christian music community. We are grateful for Matthew's hard work, unwavering commitment to always make the best possible music and for his relentless dedication to his fans, we send our thanks and congratulations to Matthew and to those who supported him with their votes."

Matthew West just wrapped his Into The Light fall tour and will appear on The Story Tour throughout this December. He is also set to join TobyMac's Hits Deep Tour the spring of 2014.
