HOLLYWOOD, CA – Sam Smith continues his winning streak, taking Favorite Male Artist – Pop/Rock honors at the 2014 American Music Awards. In the past month, the acclaimed British artist has won the VH1 2014 You Oughta Know Artist Of The Year award and a Q award, and swept the MOBO Awards with wins in four categories. He will perform on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” next Monday, December 1.

“I’m Not the Only One,” his new single, has entered the Top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 100, marking Smith’s third Top 10 hit this year, a feat unrivaled by any other male artist in 2014. It follows his 4x multi-Platinum breakthrough hit, “Stay With Me,” which was played across eight radio formats and climbed to No. 1 at five formats.

In The Lonely Hour (Capitol Records), his first full-length album, made chart history in the U.S., selling more copies in its first week of release than any other U.K. male artist debut in the 23-year history of SoundScan, and bowing at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. It entered the UK Albums Chart at No. 1. The Associated Press gave the album a “Grade A,” hailing it as “a passionate, heart-wrenching album,” and The Washington Post observed, “‘In the Lonely Hour’ shows off every facet of Smith's voice to goose pimple-raising effect.”

Smith will return to the U.S. in January 2015 for his third North American headline tour in less than a year. The arena and theatre run includes a concert at Madison Square Garden that sold out in minutes and a two-night stand The Forum in Los Angeles.
