Earlier this year, 11 debuted in the Top Ten of eleven international charts including #1 in Canada, India and Switzerland; at #2 in Austria, Denmark and Germany; #4 in Portugal; #6 in the UK and #8 in Holland. The album arrived nearly three decades after Adams’ self-titled 1980 debut and four years after his last studio release, 2004’s Room Service. In between those two discs, the Canadian-born, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter has sold more than 65 million albums worldwide, garnered 21 top ten hits, earned nominations for three Academy Awards and five Golden Globes, received 18 Juno Awards, an American Music Award and five ASCAP Film and Television Music Awards for Most Performed Song from a Motion Picture (his music has appeared on more than 40 movie soundtracks).

Adams has been awarded the Order of Canada and the Order of British Columbia; he has received an award for "Artist of the Decade" and was recently inducted into the Juno Hall of Fame. He also has a star on Canada's Walkway of Fame and recently added his handprint to the Wembley Square of Fame in celebration of his 25th show at the famed stadium.

Through his own foundation he has also helped build schools in areas of Southeast Asia, devastated by the tsunami in 2004.
