Aaron Shust ATLANTA, Ga. – Brash Music has announced that more than 500,000 people have purchased Aaron Shust’s smash hit, “My Savior My God,” either in physical or digital format. The song helped garner Shust three Dove Awards including “Song of the Year,” “Songwriter of the Year,” and “New Artist of the Year.” Additionally, “My Savior My God” was a #1 radio hit and ended 2006 as the most played song at Christian radio.

“The fact that more than a half-million copies of ‘My Savior My God’ have been purchased in the current retail environment is a huge testament to the impact it’s had on so many people. I believe that this song will continue to encourage congregations and radio listeners for years to come,” said Steve Jones, president of Brash Music.

The milestone comes as Shust recently wrapped a headline tour with former American Idol Chris Sligh and worship artist Meredith Andrews. The tour hit more than 20 cities throughout the fall and included several sold-out shows. The tour supported Shust’s new project, Take Over, which released in August to rave reviews.

Along with Take Over, Shust recently announced the release of his first Christmas EP. The digital project, Shust’s first for the holidays, is available exclusively at major online retailers including iTunes and Amazon.com. The Christmas EP’s three songs include “God Has Come To Earth” and “Silent Night.” The third, “O Come, O Come Emmanuel,” is already a Top 5 radio hit that has become a staple of Christian radio airplay during the Christmas season.
