Alternative rock and pop singer Rob Thomas has garnered a string of accolades for his work as lead singer and primary composer with Matchbox Twenty as well as for his solo work and collaborations with other artists. Catch his Tunica concert at Bluesville on April 19, 2014.
One of the most distinctive vocalists and accomplished songwriters in contemporary music, Rob Thomas was the first recipient of the Songwriters Hall of Fame’s “Starlight Award” in 2004 – created to recognize a songwriter in the early years of his or her career that has already made a lasting impact. He has won numerous BMI and ASCAP Awards and earned the Songwriter of the Year crown from Billboard and BMI two years in a row.
Thomas is best known for his chart-topping hits “Lonely No More” and “This is How a Heart Breaks” and Matchbox Twenty hits like “Push,” “3AM,” “If You’re Gone,” and “Bent.” Thomas earned three Grammy Awards for “Smooth,” his smash hit collaboration with Santana. Rob Thomas’ last solo album, Cradlesong, featured "Someday," “Her Diamonds” and other number one hits.

Rob is currently at work on his third solo album.
