The announcement was made at an event at the Cannery ballroom near Nashville’s music row.
Debuting at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in May 2008, “The Time of My Life” has sold more than 1M downloads. The song peaked at #1 on the Adult Contemporary Tracks chart, and remained there for 11 weeks. “The Time of My Life” was used during the 2008 Summer Olympics games. A few months later, David performed it on Oprah Winfrey’s 2008 premiere, honoring the Olympic gold medalists.
Songwriter Regie Hamm entered the song “Time Of My Life” to the Season 7 songwriters contest at the encouragement of his wife Yolanda. After the song was played during the 2008 Winter Olympics in China, Hamm wrote a blog about how the challenges his family faced after adopting a special needs child from China inspired him to write “The Time of My Life”.
A big congratulations to both David Cook and Regie Hamm…
