Matchbox Twenty has sold over 30 million records worldwide, and earned countless accolades, including five GRAMMY® nominations, four American Music Award nods, and the 2004 People’s Choice Award for “Favorite Musical Group.” Furthermore, Rob Thomas has proven one of the most highly decorated artists of recent years, receiving three GRAMMY® Awards, 11 BMI Awards, the first ever Songwriters Hall of Fame Hal David Starlight Award, and two Billboard “Songwriter of the Year” honors for both his chart-topping solo work as well as collaborations with such legends as Santana, Mick Jagger, and Willie Nelson. Thomas’ collaboration with Carlos Santana on “Smooth” was also named the #2 “Most Popular Song Ever” on Billboard’s list of the “100 Most Popular Songs Behind ‘The Twist.’” He was also named to Billboard’s “Top 20 List of Hot 100 Songwriters 2000-2011” at #5, and was the top ranking artist/songwriter on the list.

Goo Goo Dolls have sold millions of albums worldwide, with 14 Top 10 Radio hits, more than any other artist in the history of the Hot AC format. They have been nominated for four GRAMMY Awards and are the only artist to have three songs on Billboard’s “Top 100 Songs from 1992-2012″ including the Number One slot, for “Iris.” “Iris” spent nearly 12 straight months on the Billboard charts and held the Number One position for 17 consecutive weeks. John Rzeznik has been honored with the Songwriters Hall of Fame Hal David Starlight Award and they have shared the stage with everyone from The Rolling Stones to Taylor Swift, who recently covered “Iris” with Rzeznik onstage.
