Big Daddy Weave
Dove Award-winning band Big Daddy Weave, one of Christian Music’s mainstays, is currently enjoying its career best-selling album, Love Come To Life, an album boasting three consecutive number one radio singles: “Love Come To Life,” “Redeemed,” and “The Only Name (Yours Will Be).” In 2013, Big Daddy Weave’s monster hit song and career best-selling track, “Redeemed,” spent 11 weeks at No. 1, and took home the prestigious trophy for “Song of the Year” at the first-ever K-LOVE Fan Awards, while receiving nominations for “Christian Song of the Year” at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, and “Song of the Year” at the 2013 Dove Awards. The first Christian AC-Monitored radio chart of 2013 featured “Redeemed” in the number one position, while the first AC-Monitored chart of 2014 rang in with “The Only Name (Yours Will Be)” in the top spot. The band, comprised of Mike Weaver, Jay Weaver, Jeremy Redmon, Joe Shirk and Brian Beihl, formed when the original members were attending the University of Mobile. In 2002, Big Daddy Weave stepped into the spotlight with the release of its second album, One and Only, which debuted in SoundScan’s Christian Top 5 and earned them a Dove Award nomination for “New Artist of the Year.” In 2010, Big Daddy Weave took home the Dove Award for “Christmas Album of the Year” for its seventh album, Christ Is Come. The band has also been honored at ASCAP’s Christian Music Awards and BMI’s Christian Music Awards and is one of the 10 most played artists at Christian radio over the past decade.
On January 11th, Big Daddy Weave embarked on a trip to Cambodia with World Vision, where they saw first-hand the work that World Vision is doing and the services they are providing. A long-time partner with World Vision, having endorsed child sponsorships at numerous shows throughout their career, Big Daddy Weave has played a key role in fulfilling World Vision’s mission.
