Big Daddy Weave

Feverent Records

CBN.comFor more than a decade, Big Daddy Weave has been one of Christian music’s most successful and musically compelling groups. Their songs, including hits like “In Christ,” “Audience of One,” “What Life Would Be Like,” “Every Time I Breathe,” “You Found Me” and “You’re Worthy Of My Praise,” have been among the genre’s most treasured.

Formed at the University of Mobile, the quintet—Mike Weaver, Jay Weaver, Joe Shirk, Jeremy Redmon and Jeff Jones—has earned a reputation both for the musical conviction that has carried their songs to the top of the charts and for the joy and passion that have made their live performances such moving and memorable experiences.

Big Daddy Weave has also compiled a stellar list of milestones: “One And Only” debuted in SoundScan’s Christian Top 5 and stayed in the Top 20 for six weeks; “In Christ” peaked at #2, stayed for 24 weeks on R&R’s AC chart, and became one of ASCAP’s 25 most performed songs of 2002; the group was nominated for a Dove Award as New Artist of the Year in 2002, honored at ASCAP’s Christian Music Awards in 2003 and 2004, chosen for the WOW Hits compilations in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2011, and won a Dove Award for Christmas Album of the Year in 2010.

The Ultimate Collection summarizes the group’s career to this point and, with their new single “Love Come To Life,” points the way to one of music’s most promising futures.


This collection is a picture of where we've been for the ten years since we began our recording career with Fervent Records. It's amazing how much life we've experienced together as five guys and how faithful God has been in seeing us through all of it. Most of this music came from the days before we had families. Now we're husbands and dads, which is pretty unbelievable. It seems like we were just in college, putting this band together to open for another group on campus one night. Now it's 13 years later and we're still here and still doing this! We've been all these places and have gotten to meet so many wonderful people. And to this day, the business has never distracted us from what we really came here to do, which is just play the music we love to play and write songs we believe in. At a time when it feels like the world is falling apart, we get to make a living playing music that carries the hope of what we believe in, the hope of Jesus and what He's done.
