Phillip Phillips Nominated for an American Music Award as Best New Artist


It has been a great week for Phillip Phillips fans. On Tuesday, he released an unannounced acoustic LP on iTunes. The album, titled iTunes Session, contains a selection of songs from Phillip’s The World From The Side Of The Moon beautifully rendered in acoustic form.

And yesterday it was announced that Phillip received a nomination for Best New Artist from the American Music Awards. The AMAs are an annual music awards show where the winners are chosen by the public and the fans.

Starting November 1st, fans will be able to cast their vote for Phillip on the AMAs website. Voting on the AMAs website is restricted to residents of the US.

However, everybody, including fans living outside the US, will be able to vote via Twitter by using Phillip’s Twitter handle or name, the award category for which he is nominated (Best New Artist) and the hashtag #AMAs.

Here is an example of a valid voting tweet: @Phillips New Artist Of The Year #AMAs or Phillip Phillips New Artist Of The Year #AMAs

When voting via Twitter, both tweets and retweets will count. You can start Tweet voting for the New Artist Of The Year category on November 1st.

This nomination marks another great achievement in Phillip’s already very successful career as he gets more recognition from new fans and the music industry. He has previously received nominations for Teen Choice Awards, MuchMusic Video Music Awards and Billboard Music Awards.

The American Music Awards winners will be announced during a live broadcast on Sunday, November 24th from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

EDIT:  It was brought to our attention that there has been some confusion with the AMAs voting rules regarding voting via Twitter. The information we have received from Phillip’s team is that the voting on Twitter for the New Artist Of The Year category starts on November 1st. You can find this information on the AMAs website but they don’t specify the rules for voting via Twitter.

We are also waiting for confirmation about fans outside the US being able to vote with their Tweets. The information on the AMAs website again does not specify the rules as they apply to Twitter votes. As of now, only residents of the US will be able to vote for his category via Twitter or the AMAs website, starting November 1st

Phillip Phillips’ Debut Album Is Certified Platinum


Phillip Phillips’ debut album The World From the Side of the Moon (19 Entertainment/Interscope Records) has been certified platinum by the R.I.A.A. in the U.S. less than a year after its release. Released in November 2012 The World From the Side of the Moon debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart and #1 on the Billboard Rock Album chart and has gone on to sell over 1 million copies.


To thank fans for their support Phillips is re-releasing his debut album to include three additional live tracks. Live versions of “Gone, Gone, Gone,” “Where We Came From” and “Man on the Moon” will join the live version of his hit single “Home” that is on the original album. This fan edition of The World From the Side of the Moon is due November 19th, on the one-year anniversary of the album’s original release. Fans can also purchase the three tracks as a separate set titled Phillip Philips: Live. The new live songs were recorded during stops on John Mayer’s Born and Raised tour.

The World From the Side of the Moon’s first two singles “Home” and “Gone, Gone, Gone” have hit Number One on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart, putting Phillips in the company of only eight other male solo artists who have achieved the same feat. “Home” sees sales of over 4.7 million making it the most successful single of any American Idol winner. The album’s third single, “Where We Came From” is one of nine tracks on the album Phillips wrote or co-wrote.

Phillips has been on tour with John Mayer since July, and will continue to open for Mayer on the second leg of the Born and Raised Tour, which kicks off November 19th in Moline, IL and runs through December 17th at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.

Phillip Phillips gets a Birthday Surprise at Rock in Rio


Phillip celebrated his 23rd birthday in Brazil on September 20th, and we had prepared a special surprise for him. A few minutes before he hit the ‘Rock in Rio’ stage, the RIR team and I entered backstage with a cake and sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to him.

I’d like to thank the RIR staff that helped make this happen. I’m sure Phillip loved the surprise.
After that, they brought me to watch Phillip’s show from a very special place on the stage, it was unforgettable.
Check out the video and photos below.

‘Home’ catapulted Phillip Phillips to the top of the charts



Phillip Phillips keeps moving forward.

 Nearly one year after his debut album, “The World From the Side of the Moon,” was released, it’s gone platinum.

It also has spawned hits – “Home” and “Gone, Gone, Gone,” and his current single “Where We Came From” is rising on the charts.

Phillips burst onto the music scene through “American Idol,” where he won season 11. Since then, he’s been on tour nonstop and he was able to snag the opening slot on John Mayer’s return to touring.

“It’s been a blessing and I don’t want it to slow down,” he says during a recent interview. “All of this has been something I’ve worked at since I was young.”

Phillips was raised in Leesburg, Ga., and took up guitar at the age of 14. He was inspired by his now brother-in-law Benjamin Neil and that began Phillips’ love affair with the guitar.

But it wasn’t until a few years later that Phillips formed his first band with his sister and brother-in-law and became a singer.

“I used to always keep my singing to myself and never let anyone hear me, but then my sister and brother-in-law caught me one night and told me I had to start singing in the band,” he says. “We played at a church that Sunday and the room was packed and I thought I was going to pass out, but I did it.”

After having a year of constant touring under his belt for the album, Phillips says the entire collection of songs has grown on him in a different way.

“The album sort of takes you through all these different emotions. There are feel-good songs and love songs but also songs that get a little darker,” he says. “The most important thing to me is making music that comes from my heart and really connects with people on a gut level.”

For the past year, he’s been able to play his own songs for live audiences – both as a headliner and as an opener.

He says it was a little bit terrifying to share his songs.

“We’re at the point where the crowd’s singing along – even to the ones that aren’t the singles – which is amazing to see,” he says. “We just go out there and jam out and try to make it different and exciting, instead of playing the songs exactly how they sound on the album. It’s all about real musicians playing real music that we’re passionate about and just having a good time, and hopefully we’re giving the crowd a good time, too.”

Phillip Phillips at Arena Anhembi in Sao Paulo – Brazil 9/19/2013


Phillip stepped into South America with its first concert in Argentina, then he came to Brazil to perform at Arena Anhembi in Sao Paulo. It was a success, drawing over 35,000 fans.

Phillip sang 7 songs in addition to some covers, the show lasted about 45 minutes.
Though performing for the first time in Brazil, he was surprised to see that the Brazilians could sing all his songs.

He celebrated his birthday in Brazil (9/20/2013), then the Brazilian fans had a surprise for him, they sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to Phill after his concert. I’m pretty sure he loved that surprise.

pamella-phillipThis concert was very special for many reasons, but most importantly it was the first time I would meet him after a long time waiting.
As you know, I got this site since Phillip was on American Idol, and I never had the chance to meet him, but all my hard work paid off, I finally met him.
I met him the night he arrived in Brazil (9/18), he recognized me, looked at me and said, ‘Are you Pam?’ and I said: ‘Yeah Phillip! Finally!’ then he held me tight.
At that moment I was sure that all my work was worth it. I want to thank him for being so wonderful to me. Also want to thank Hannah and Merrick. Thanks for everything.
Philatics you were also amazing to me, thank you for supporting me and making me believe, thank you for visiting the site and trusting in my work.

In May I started a project called ‘fanbook’ (more info), a book with pictures and messages to Phillip. There were messages from fans around the world and I promised the fans that I would deliver this book to him, and yes, I gave it to him personally, he loved it. #success

Thank you Philatics! 

Me and Phillip. He’s holding the fanbook.
