Nickelback is currently nominated for Grammy in the Best Hard Rock Performance category for "Burn It To The Ground."

The latest single from Dark Horse, "Never Gonna Be Alone," is already top 10 at Hot AC and heating up quickly at Pop, where it is currently top 30. The video for "Never Gonna Be Alone" is in rotation at MTV, MTV2, MTV Hits, Vh1, Fuse and Music Choice. The video was shot by veteran director and longtime Nickelback friend Nigel Dick.

Nickelback has enjoyed unprecedented success with their last album, All The Right Reasons, which has been RIAA certified 8X platinum. The six singles from the album totaled 12 million downloads and 6 million ringtones. All proceeds of digital single and video sales for "If Everyone Cared" between February 1 and July 31, 2007 were donated to charity, equally distributed between Amnesty International and International Childrens' Awareness Canada. Each of the five videos from All The Right Reasons has reached #1 on VH1's playlist: "Photograph," "Savin' Me," "Far Away," "If Everyone Cared" and "Rockstar." In 2006 Nickelback was awarded a World Music Award for "World's Best Rock Group," a Billboard Touring Award for "Breakthrough Artist," an American Music Award for "Favorite Pop/Rock Album" and a People's Choice Award for "Best Rock Group."
