TobyMac won the Contemporary Inspirational Favorite Artist category of the 40th annual American Music Awards (AMA), held Sunday, Nov. 18, in Los Angeles.

TobyMac, who won the award for the first time after his fourth career nomination, was chosen by fans over Jeremy Camp and the Newsboys.

This was the second consecutive year that TobyMac had been nominated for the prize's sole category dedicated to Christian music, with last year's award won by Casting Crowns.

"This is my first AMA," said TobyMac, after learning he won the award before his set at the Winter Jam West Coast Tour in Fresno, Calif. "I still can't believe it. It is so meaningful to me because the people I'm thinking about when I'm writing these songs are the ones who vote."

Nominees in 20 categories from pop or rock to rap and hip-hop were determined from chart data, and fans chose the winners in online voting for the sixth year at the Coca-Cola AMA website, AMAs365.com.
