Nashville, Tenn. (May 10, 2013) - The reasons to celebrate continue to add up for sixstepsrecords' acclaimed worship leader Matt Redman. This year alone, Redman's powerful single "10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord)" has been certified Digital Gold by the RIAA, earned two GRAMMY® awards and is nominated for K-LOVE Fan Awards' "Song of The Year." The song is also up for "Top Christian Song" at the Billboard Music Awards, one of two nods for Redman for the award show. Adding to the worship anthem's impressive honors came earlier this week when it was named ASCAP's Christian Music Song of the Year at Monday night's ASCAP Christian Awards at the Franklin Theatre.

"I love watching the journey a song can go on," says Redman. "We wrote '10,000 Reasons' in a tiny little chapel in the English village I live in, and it's been a big blessing to see if fly around so many churches and radio - and then to receive an encouragement like this. Huge thanks to ASCAP for the award."

Momentum continues for Redman as he is set to record a brand new worship album at Passion City Church's 'LIFT: A Worship Leader Collective' in Atlanta, GA from May 31 - June. 1. Hosted by Louie Giglio and GRAMMY® winner Chris Tomlin, the event will bring together worship leaders from across the country. Redman's forthcoming project will be a live recording from the event, following suit with 10,000 Reasons, wihch was recorded at the LIFT gathering in 2011. The new album will release on Sept. 24.
