All eyes will be tuned into ABC’s The View this Friday, May 24(11 AM EST, 10 AM PST/CST) as six-time GRAMMY® winner, TobyMac makes his second appearance in less than 13 months on the popular morning show. TobyMac returns to perform his hook-savvy No. 1 hit, “Me Without You,” from his Billboard Top 200 No. 1 album EYE ON IT. Adding to the project’s continued momentum is this week’s Billboard Music Awards for “Top Christian Album.” TobyMac also garnered a second win in the category of “Top Christian Artist.” Sunday night’s honors add to TobyMac’s impressive streak of winning at every major award show he has been nominated for this season – GRAMMY® Awards, American Music Awards, Australian Music Awards.
To top off an already exciting week on The View, TobyMac heard about his first Billboard Music Awards saying, “It’s been a seriously encouraging year already…it’s hard to believe EYE ON IT only came out eight months ago. It’s my honor to write songs that turn people’s eyes toward a God who loves them. ‘Steal My Show’ is not just a song I want to sing, it’s how I want to live.”
“Steal My Show” is the follow-up single from EYE ON IT and is No. 1 on this week’s charts. On June 1, TobyMac will join his friends for the first annual K-LOVE Fan Awards at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. The multi-award winner has three nominations in the categories of “Song of the Year,” “Male Artist of the Year” and “Artist of the Year.” He is the most nominated solo artist and only one of two artists overall to receive three nods.

The project made TobyMac one of only four artists to ever debut atop the Billboard Top 200 with a Christian music album. Earlier this year, EYE ON IT received a GRAMMY®, marking the sixth career award for TobyMac.
