In Powell's work with Walt Disney Records, five of his productions have gone gold and two platinum.

In 1999 Powell received a Grammy nomination along with coproducer Ted Kryczko for their production of Disney's A Bug's Life Sing-Along. In 2001 he was awarded the Award of Distinction from both the Communicator Awards and the Videographer Awards for his video production of "Gary Powell Presents…," a behind-the-scenes look at the recording sessions for A Bug's Life Sing-Along. Powell has also won five gold Parents' Choice Awards and one silver Parent's Choice Award for his work as producer for Joe Scruggs.
