Thousands Watch as Fervent Records Act Saluted for Run of Four Straight No. 1 Hits; Wins Second K-LOVE Fan Award
More than 2,500 K-LOVE Fan Awards Weekend attendees helped celebrate Big Daddy Weave on Saturday night, May 30, 2015, for a sizzling run of hits. And that was just the start of the fun.
The award-winning band was honored at Gaylord Opryland Resort for its string of four consecutive No. 1 hits from the 2012 album Love Come To Life – the title track, “Redeemed,” “The Only Name (Yours Will Be)” and “Overwhelmed.” Additionally, Word Entertainment President and CEO Rod Riley presented plaques to the band in honor of reaching RIAA gold certification for “Redeemed.”
Big Daddy Weave lead singer Mike Weaver, Word Entertainment President & CEO Rod Riley, K-LOVE Fan Awards Co-Creator and Producer John Sanders and David Pierce, Chief Creative Officer at K-LOVE and Air1, spoke during the Saturday evening ceremony.
Then, on Sunday night during the K-LOVE Fan Awards at the Grand Ole Opry House, the band learned it won the fan-voted Artist to Appear on a 7UP Can Award presented by Pepsi, which means their image will adorn 3 million 7UP soda cans later this summer.
