Singer and songwriter Gavin DeGraw will perform at the NAB Marconi Radio Awards Dinner & Show Oct. 1 in Atlanta.
The event will be hosted by syndicated radio personality Rickey Smiley and is part of the 2015 Radio Show. It is produced by the National Association of Broadcasters and the Radio Advertising Bureau.
DeGraw’s debut album “Chariot” appeared on the charts in 2003 and sold over a million copies and includes three hit singles. His self-titled second album debuted at number one on the digital sales chart and number seven on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart in 2008. His third album, “Sweeter,” was released in September 2011 and includes the single “Not Over You,” which reached number one on the hot AC chart, was a Top 10 hit on Top 40 and was certified double platinum. His fourth, “Make A Move,” was released in October 2013. The single “We Both Know,” co-written with artist Colbie Caillat for the movie “Safe Haven,” earned him a Grammy nomination.
DeGraw is on a North American tour with Shania Twain and is the opening act for Billy Joel.
“Gavin DeGraw’s numerous chart-topping hits make him one of the most formidable pop/rock artists of our time,” said NAB Executive Vice President of Radio John David.
