Following numerous No. 1 radio singles, songwriting awards, touring in front of a million people and even co-hosting the K-LOVE Fan Awards for a second time, 2016 was an extraordinary year for award-winning artist and renowned songwriter Matthew West. Most recently, West has been named Billboard's Hot Christian Songwriter of the Year. This news comes on the heels of being touted by ASCAP as their 2016 Christian Songwriter-Artist of the Year. West previously received this honor from ASCAP in both 2013 and 2015.
Adding author to his list of accolades, West has written four books to date: Give This Christmas Away, The Story Of Your Life, Forgiveness, and Today Is Day One. And, he recently announced his next book, Hello, My Name Is: Discover Your True Identity is set for release on April 18, 2017.
An Amazon description of the 224 page book reads: "Are you trying to remember a more promising time in your life? Maybe you are not sure you like where you've been, or who you've become. Maybe you're struggling to find your true identity, or where exactly you fit in this crazy world. Maybe someone has made you believe a lie about who you are by speaking damaging words to you. The freeing news is you're not alone. Every single one of us has a difficult journey to discover our true, God-given identity."
Hello, My Name Is: Discover Your True Identity is being released by Worthy Publishing and is available for pre-order now.
