You've come a long way in a short time, from being an indie artist and writing for other artists to winning the Dove Award for New Artist of the Year. Ho do you account for the rapid growth?Brandon Heath I'm not sure I can account for anything other than the fact that timing and prayer had a lot to do with it. I could attribute a lot of the credit to my first audience, which was Young Life kids at camps, mainly across the West coast. They demanded the music and I happily delivered!But it was Dan Muckala, one of my close friends in Nashville and now my producer, who was responsible for recording my first record and bringing it to a label. I think that was a huge step for me.It took a lot of belief, on many levels, for me to think that being a recording artist was the right step. It takes a lot of time and hard work to pull it off. I've been blessed with great people to help me with all that.Has winning the Dove expanded your audience or increased your recognition?Quick takes:
