With over 11 million units in career sales, TobyMac's career continues on the fast track, with his most recent project, EYE ON IT, garnering him the highest chart debut of his solo career landing at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200. The album also topped iTunes® Overall and Christian sales charts. TobyMac's previous four solo projects have received RIAA Gold certification and his live DVD, Alive & Transported, is certified platinum by the RIAA and received a GRAMMY® award. In 2012, the much-celebrated and acclaimed artist celebrated his eighth consecutive GRAMMY® nomination, this time for his songwriting contribution to rising star (and recording artist on his label, Gotee Records) Jamie Grace's No. 1 hit "Hold Me." His 2009 album Tonight received GRAMMY® nods for "Best Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album" and "Best Contemporary Christian Song" with "City On Our Knees" the track that topped the sales and radio charts faster than any of his previous singles, spending eight weeks at No. 1 on the Christian Audience Chart.
