Matchbox 20 were also recipients of the rare Diamond Award from the RIAA for their whopping 12-times platinum debut album "Yourself or Someone Like You".
Matchbox 20 became a global sensation and Rob Thomas stood out, not only with his unique rough and ready vocals, matched with his insanely appealing moody-good looks, but more importantly, he holds a deep, soulful, and emotionally passionate expression of his creative genius through songwriting. One of the earliest songs that he'd written and performed was "3 AM" which was about his struggles while taking care of his mother at a very young age and his tumultuous childhood and home life in general. Unbeknownst to many, Thomas also was a songwriter to iconic superstars such as Willie Nelson, Mick Jagger, Marc Anthony, Pat Green, Taylor Hicks, Travis Tritt, and Daughtry. His gift of songwriting was recognized when became the first-ever recipient of the prestigious Songwriters Hall of Fame Hal David Starlight Award, bestowed upon composers who have already made and significant impact and purposeful influence in the early years of their careers.
One of the momentous instances that propelled Rob Thomas to pursue a solo career was Carlos Santana's comeback album "Supernatural". "Smooth" "really opened up the door for me as a songwriter and a solo artist," says Thomas. The single “Smooth,” took home three GRAMMY® Awards, clung on to the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for 12 weeks, and spent a total of 58 weeks on the chart. It was listed as the #1 song in Billboard’s Top Hot 100 Rock Songs” and clinched the #2 spot on the Hot 100 Song of All-Time. “Smooth” was declared to still hold the number 2 spot on Billboard's most successful song of all time. It holds the record of being the all-time #1 song on Billboard’s “Adult Pop Songs” radio airplay chart, the #1 song of the Rock Era based on chart performance on Billboard’s Hot 100. Rob Thomas officially burst into the scene as a solo artist when he released the single "Lonely No More" in 2005. "Something to Be", his platinum solo debut, became “the first album by a male artist from a rock or pop group to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 since the chart debuted.”
Rob Thomas candidly expresses his intent for his songs to be relatable and touch the lives of his audience. “I write a lot of songs about the human condition, how people interact with each other, and how we deal with our environments,” he leaves off. “I want people to take them and attach them to their lives. I hope they possibly speak to what they’re going through, and I’m always thankful they’re still listening.”
