Matthew West Wins His First American Music Award

Nov 27 2013

Singer/songwriter Matthew West won his first American Music Award earlier this week. He was awarded Best Contemporary Inspirational Artist during the ceremony at Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre.

The American Music Awards are determined by fans through online voting. West was nominated for the category alongside labelmates TobyMac and Chris Tomlin.

"What an honor to receive the AMA award this year!" said West, who attended the ceremony with his wife Emily.

"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."

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