With over 23 million records sold worldwide and numerous album, radio and video accolades, Nickelback shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. All the Right Reasons, the band’s most recent album, saw a band revitalized by the energy of new drummer, Daniel Adair. The disc followed the group’s multi-platinum third album, The Long Road, and debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart and has remained in the Top 20 after 80 weeks. The 5x platinum disc has yielded six #1 singles, "Photograph", "Animals", "Savin' Me", "Far Away", "Rockstar" and "If Everyone Cared". To date the single and video for "If Everyone Cared" has raised over $500,000 for charity through digital sales.
“Number One” has been a common phrase in Nickelback’s career. Their eagerness to experiment and evolve lit up All The Right Reasons in October of 2005, and the album debuted at the top of the Canadian SoundScan Top 200 Sales Chart and the coveted Billboard Top 200 Sales Chart—a first for the band. The Long Road sold over 5 million copies worldwide (4 x platinum in Canada), and bore several rock, and pop radio smashes including “Someday,” “Figured You Out”, and “Feelin’ Way Too Damn Good.” The album earned the band six Juno Award nominations (two wins), three Grammy Award nominations and one American Music Award nomination. Their previous disc, 2001’s Silver Side Up, was even more successful, selling over 11 million copies around the globe and spawning three number one hits, “Too Bad,” “Never Again”, and their monstrous breakout single, “How You Remind Me,” which was the number one Most Played Song of 2002. Silver Side Up achieved multi-Platinum status around the world and racked up four Juno Awards, four Grammy Award nominations, two American Music Award Nominations and four Billboard Awards.
Over the past year and a half, Nickelback have been recognized with a plethora of awards and nominations including the accolade of most played artist at radio in 2006. On November 15th, 2006, Nickelback was named the World’s Best Rock Band at the World Music Awards and on November 10th the band won the Breakthrough Artist Award at the Billboard Touring Awards. Additionally, the band won three awards at the Billboard Music Awards, one American Music Award for Best Duo/Group, a People’s Choice Award for Favourite Group, and 2 Juno Awards for Group of the Year and Rock Album of the Year. On June 9th, 2007, Nickelback was inducted into Canada’s Walk of Fame. On July 10th, the band will release a special edition of All the Right Reasons, featuring live tracks, a bonus DVD with music videos, and behind-the-scenes footage.
