(Nashville, Tenn.) Jan. 27, 2011 – Dove-winning Male Vocalist of the Year, Brandon Heath debuts his highly-anticipated third studio release, Leaving Eden, at No. 1 this week on Billboard’s Top Current Contemporary Christian Chart, marking the Nashville artist’s first career opening at the top of the sales chart.

Produced by Dan Muckala, the acclaimed 11-song project also held the No.1 position on iTunes Christian Albums chart, and lead single “Your Love” remains No. 1 at radio for a third week atop Billboard’s National Christian Audience, and AC Monitor charts, with 100% of AC stations across the country spinning the hit track.

Reviews applaud the GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter’s latest offering, with Billboard magazine projecting Heath as the next leader in the genre. The respected print magazine’s Jan. 22 feature states Heath is “Cementing his growing status as the next young male artist to carry the Christian music torch held by veterans Steven Curtis Chapman and Michael W. Smith…”.

Other media outlets proclaim:

“ Brandon Heath won the last two Dove Awards for Male Vocalist of the Year with “Give Me Your Eyes,” and “I’m Not Who I Was,” but those tunes pale in comparison with what he offers on Leaving Eden.” - DenverPost.com

“…we can’t get his song “Leaving Eden” out of our heads.” - AmericanSongwriter.com

As radio and sales soar, Heath reached another career milestone as the digital sales of his previous 2009 Song of the Year hit “Give Me Your Eyes” surpass 500,000 - officially certifying as a RIAA Gold digital single last week. According to SoundScan, “Give Me Your Eyes” has sold over 563,000 digital downloads to date.

Heath is currently on tour with GRAMMY Award winning artist TobyMac as part of the Winter Wonder Slam Tour. For tour dates, and to view Heath’s new Leaving Eden video sessions, please visit www.brandonheath.net.
