December 1, 2011 ñ Christian musicís two-time GMA Male Vocalist of the Year and multiple GRAMMY AwardÆ nominee Brandon Heath was honored again with an impressive three nominations from The Recording AcademyÆ during last nightís hour-long special broadcast, ìThe GRAMMYÆ Nominations Concert Live!! ó Countdown To Music's Biggest NightÆ,î which aired live on CBS from Nokia Theatre at L.A. LIVE.

Heathís nominations were earned across three categories. His eight-week No. 1 radio hit, ìYour Loveî (from his 1/18/2011 project, Leaving Eden) was honored in both Best Gospel/Contemporary Christian Music Performance and Best Contemporary Christian Music Song, an honor he shares with co-writer Jason Ingram. Leaving Eden was recognized in the Best Contemporary Christian Music Album category.

The 54th Annual GRAMMY AwardsÆ ceremony will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif. on Sunday, February 12, 2012.

The acclaimed singer/songwriter will soon wrap a very successful touring year in support of Leaving Eden. Fans actively supported tour dates in 96 cities, including 45 headlining concerts with opener, Britt Nicole.

A draw for Heathís fans is his ability to connect on a personal level with his audience. His albumís title track ìLeaving Edenî developed into a campaign thatís taken on a life of its own. Based on the ìLeaving Edenî theme, Brandon has challenged himself, and those around him, to reflect on three questions: 1) What Is Your Eden? 2) What Is Your Apple? 3) What Is Your Heart? Visit BrandonHeath.net to watch videos and read Brandon's thoughts on each topic. Brandon also invites people to join him in the conversations on his site, where many have already shared their personal "Edens," "apples," and "hearts."
