The young Nashville native is an established storyteller with a lengthy list of achievements. He earned the Gospel Music Association’s Dove Award in 2008 for Best New Artist and fulfilled that early promise by garnering numerous other accolades including two consecutive Doves for Male Vocalist (2009 and 2010), Song of the Year and Pop/Contemporary Song of the Year for “Give Me Your Eyes” (2009). Heath has received five Grammy nomincations, won an Emmy Award, and most recently won BMI’s songwriter of the year for 2014. Three previous albums have landed in the top ten, and he’s scored four No. 1 hit singles---“Give Me Your Eyes,” “Wait and See,” “I’m Not Who I Was,” and “Your Love.” In 2013, he released Christmas is Here, which became an instant holiday classic, that went on to win a Dove Award for Christmas album of the year.
The reason for Heath’s success is easy to understand. It starts with a compelling voice that has a warm, rich tone and Heath has a gift for penning songs from a deep well of personal experience, yet they are universal in their appeal. His honesty and transparency resonates with believers of all ages, genders and cultures. On No Turning Back Heath showcases his songwriting, celebrating the decision that changed his life. “I heard the gospel for the first time at Young Life's Malibu Club in Canada,” Heath says. “Every night they share a little more of the Gospel, and by the end of the week, I told my Young Life leader that I thought that I wanted to have a more active and intimate relationship with Jesus. So that’s where I made that decision.”
