Big Daddy Weave, a contemporary Christian band, met while in college at the University of Mobile. Mike Weaver had been serving as worship leader at a Pensacola church and attending community college in the area. At the urging of his pastor, he went to the university and studied voice.

Members of Big Daddy Weave are Mike Weaver, songwriter/lead vocals/guitar; Brian Beihl, drums; Jay Weaver, bass/vocals; Joe Shirk, saxophone/keyboards; and Jeremy Redmon, guitars/vocals.

The group toured with Mark Schultz on his Broken and Beautiful Tour in 2006 and 2007 and headlined the What Life Would Be Like Tour with guest musician Josh Wilson in 2009.

 For more than 10 years, Big Daddy Weave has shared a journey in a way that has won the respect of fans, press and industry. With hits like “In Christ,” “Audience of One,” “Every Time I Breathe,” and “You Found Me,” they have been nominated for Dove Awards, winning a 2010 Dove Award for the album Christ Has Come, and have been honored at ASCAP's Christian Music Awards. They are one of the 10 most played artists at Christian radio over the past decade.

The release of their current Top 20 single “The Only Name (Yours Will Be),” also the namesake for the tour, comes on the heels of the massive success of their No. 1 hit song “Redeemed” and marks the second single from their ninth album Love Come To Life. In addition, the group and their smash hit “Redeemed” just received four Dove Awards’ nominations for “Song of the Year,” “Contemporary Christian Performance of the Year,” “Rock/Contemporary Song of the Year” and “Praise and Worship Song of the Year.”
