Accepting the award for the band was Big Daddy Weave’s bass player, Jason (Jay) Weaver. This was Jay’s first appearance since he had both feet amputated as part of ongoing efforts to fight a deep infection in his body.
“The relationship we’ve had with our friends in Christian radio all of these years is a huge honor to us,” shares Jay Weaver. “They believe in and support the mission we’ve been given. Now to be mentioned by them in the same breath as Rich Mullins is truly humbling.”
Jay continues, “The way our friends in radio have rallied around my family through all of this says so much about them. People who would have never heard about this in any other way except through Christian radio have been praying for us, with us seeing a physical reaction to that in our lives.”
