Hawk Nelson Honored With SESAC Award For Song "Words" by Merge PR on 2014-03-28 11:20:51
Nashville, Tenn. – March 28, 2014 – Hawk Nelson continues to impact fans with their 2013 released album Made (Fair Trade Services). Recently, the band was honored with a SESAC award for their No. 1 song “Words,” a Billboard’s Christian Hot AC/CHR Top 10 single for 22 weeks. Today, Hawk Nelson is releasing their newest single from Made, “A Million Miles Away” to radio.
“‘A Million Miles Away' is more than just a fun pop song that we enjoy playing live,” shares front man Jon Steingard. “It's all about the freedom we find in salvation. So much about salvation is leaving the past, leaving who you were, and entering into a new way of life walking with Jesus.
When we accept Jesus into our hearts, we are freed from our past, but sometimes it doesn't feel that way. Sometimes it feels like we're dragging all that guilt and shame along with us. This song is all about accepting that it's in the past, and watching all that old stuff fade into the distance."
Fans can hear the story behind the song with this video as well as the lyric video here.
Last year, Hawk Nelson released Made to praise as it debuted at No. 2 on the iTunes Christian & Gospel chart as well as in the Top 100 overall albums. This album featured the new Hawk Nelson front man with longtime band guitarist Jon Steingard transitioning into the role. The band has been introducing the new line-up and songs including their radio singles “Words,” “Faithful,” and the new radio single “A Million Miles Away” over the last year. Hawk has been part of the successful two legs of the Building 429 “We Won’t Be Shaken” tour that will continue through May 10. This summer Hawk Nelson will be performing at major festivals such as Creation East and West, Joyful Noise, Ichthus, Lifest, Unity Festival, Lifelight and Uprise 2014.

ARTICLE Slightly Obsessed #186: When the Path Ahead Is Fearsome
The room was dark and shadowed, the only sound within its walls the rhythmic whoosh of the ventilator beside my son’s bed. I sat on an uncomfortable chair jammed into one corner of the room. In the faint light that fell from the window across the pages of the Bible I held, I tried to corral my stampeding fears long enough to find some comfort from God’s Word. Outside the door of his room, a cacophony of voices from the nurses’ station jarred our shattered nerves.
