Awards and Nominations

Dave Matthews Band is an American rock band, formed in Charlottesville, Virginia in 1991 by singer-songwriter and guitarist Dave Matthews. Other band members include bassist Stefan Lessard, violinist Boyd Tinsley, and drummer Carter Beauford. In November 1990, Matthews became friends with a lawyer named Ross Hoffman while a bartender in Charlottesville. Hoffman convinced Matthews to create a demo album of a few songs that he had written. Matthews then shared the demo with other musicians, including Beauford and Moore. Both of them, who were jazz musicians at the time, joined Matthews after hearing the demo. The band has released eight studio albums, all with RCA Records: Under the Table and Dreaming (1994), Crash (1996), Before These Crowded Streets (1998), Everyday (2001), Busted Stuff (2002), Stand Up (2005), Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King (2009), Away from the World (2012). They have sold over 31 million albums in the United States, making them one of the top 100 highest-selling music acts of all-time.

The band has received three nominations from the American Music Awards and six nominations from the MTV Video Music Awards but has yet to win an award from either ceremony. Dave Matthews Band received two nominations in its debut year in 1996 from the Grammy Awards, but did not win either one. The next year, however, they received the Best Rock Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group award for the song "So Much to Say" from their third album, Crash. Overall, Dave Matthews Band has received 7 awards from 27 nominations.
