(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) December 1, 2011 - Christian music's two-time GMA Male Vocalist of the Year and multiple GRAMMY Award® nominee Brandon Heath was honored again with an impressive three nominations from The Recording Academy® during last night's hour-long special broadcast, "The GRAMMY® Nominations Concert Live!! - Countdown To Music's Biggest Night®," which aired live on CBS from Nokia Theatre at L.A. LIVE.

Heath's nominations were earned across three categories. His eight-week No. 1 radio hit, "Your Love" (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 Awards® 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 the Leaving Eden. Fans actively supported tour dates in 96 cities, including 45 headlining concerts with opener, Britt Nicole.

A draw for Heath's fans is his ability to connect on a personal level with his audience. His album's title track "Leaving Eden" developed into a campaign that's taken on a life of its own. Based on the "Leaving Eden" 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 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."

About Brandon Heath

Heath's third album, Leaving Eden (1/18/2011) debuted No. 1 on the Billboard Christian Sales chart and is supported by non-stop direct-support and headlining tours.
