Launching his solo career with the release of the anthemic hit Life Is a Highway from the breakthrough album Mad Mad World, and selling over one million copies in Canada alone and another six million copies worldwide, giving it certified Diamond Status in Canada, Tom earned a Grammy Nomination (1992) in the United States.

His legacy as a Canadian icon has been cemented with a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame and a 322 km section of Manitoba’s provincial highway named “Tom Cochrane’s Life Is a Highway.”
