Singer/songwriter and New Artist of the Year Brandon Heath is at the center of the Christian music scene on the eve of his sophomore album release What If We, available tomorrow, Tuesday Aug. 19. The album single “Give Me Your Eyes” has sold more than 30,000 single downloads in the four weeks since it released digitally, holding the No. 1 spot at iTunes. At radio, the hitbound song recently landed at No. 1 on CRW’s CHR chart, and this week it jumps to No. 2 on R&R’s CHR chart, and up to No. 6 on R&R’s AC-Monitored chart, with 10 million cumulative impressions to date.

Heath will also be the topic of numerous radio morning shows and events with street week concerts in Dallas, Texas, with KLTY; Austin, Texas, with KPEZ; Houston with KSBJ; West Palm Beach, Fl. with WayFM; Tampa, Fl., with JoyFM; and New York City with Star99FM. He will wrap the week in Nashville with a hometown performance at the city’s Sounds minor league baseball game.

The new album will also be supported with a feature story in Billboard magazine, a lead cover story on Salem’s CCM Magazine.com and CMCentral.com, and in Heath’s upcoming TV performances on LIFE TODAY, FamilyNet’s Every Day with Marcus & Lisa, and Daystar Network’s Joni Show, Soundcheck and Celebration.
