In 2005, Rob Thomas’ first solo album …Something To Be debuted at #1 on the Billboard album chart and sold over 3 million copies, while break-out single “Lonely No More” raced up to the top of the singles charts. In June 2006, Rob Thomas reached a new peak (literally and figuratively) when his “Something To Be Tour” made a stop at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in the foothills of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. The setting proved an idyllic backdrop for Thomas’ set, which mixed Matchbox Twenty hits such as “3 AM” and “Bent” with tracks from his solo career including “This Is How A Heart Breaks” and “Ever the Same.” The incredible performance also includes a special acoustic arrangement of “Smooth” and a cover of the David Bowie classic “Let’s Dance.”
One of the most distinctive vocalists and accomplished songwriters in contemporary music, Thomas has earned a string of accolades – both for his work as lead singer and primary composer with Matchbox Twenty as well as for his solo work and collaborations with other artists. In 2004, the Songwriters Hall of Fame presented Thomas with its premiere “Starlight Award” – created to recognize a songwriter in the early years of his or her career who has already made a lasting impact. He has won numerous BMI and ASCAP Awards, and has earned the Songwriter of the Year crown from both Billboard and BMI for two consecutive years.
Thomas has written and performed a remarkable string of hits, including Matchbox Twenty’s #1-charting “Push,” “3AM,” “If You’re Gone,” “Bent,” “Disease,” and “Unwell,” plus such favorites as “Real World,” “Back 2 Good,” “Mad Season,” and “Bright Lights.” His smash collaboration with Santana, the Thomas-penned “Smooth,” earned Rob three Grammy Awards and ranks #1 on Billboard’s “Top Hot 100 Rock Songs” chart and #2 on the magazine’s “Hot 100 All-Time Top Songs.” He has also worked with the likes of Willie Nelson, Mick Jagger, Marc Anthony, and Bernie Taupin, among many others. Combining all of his projects, Thomas has contributed to sales of some 80 million records.
