A.J. signed with an independent record label, Bermuda Dunes Records. Within three years he had 10 charted singles, was voted Independent Male Vocalist of the Year, and was nominated by the Academy of Country Music for New Male Vocalist. Some of A.J.'s songwriting honors include BMI Millionaire Award for "Change My Mind," multi platinum award for "Love Ain't Like That" and independent song of the year for "We're Here to Stay."

Masters has made time to contribute his songs and his talents to the Michelle’s Angels Foundation,” said MAF Music Director Ken Harrell. “A. J. played MAF’s first benefit concert at the Bluebird in 2005. They say if you want something done, ask a busy person. That would be A.J. Masters.”
