Texas Music Awards Nominations!

February 12th, 2009 Posted in Uncategorized

On February 1st, the nominees for this year’s Texas Music Awards were announced. It’s a great pleasure to let you all know that I’ve been nominated for both Male Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year (”Found You” off of my live album, Solo Stages - available to preview and purchase thru my online store below) in this statewide process. First of all, thanks to all of you who nominated me for these awards! It wouldn’t have happened without your help. Secondly, being nominated puts me in the top-5 in both categories for 2008-09; so there’s another process underway in selecting who will be honored at the awards ceremony in April. For both categories, public voting will count for 10% of the final determination - so I could really use your help again. You can vote via the TMA press release below.

From The Texas Music Awards.org: THE TEXAS MUSIC AWARDS with a concert by your host, Michael Martin Murphey immediately following the show. VOTING BEGINS!! Click HERE to vote. VOTING ENDS AT MIDNIGHT (CST) on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 20th, 2009. Public voting begins at 12:01am (CST) on Monday, February 2, 2009 for the 7th annual Texas Music Awards to be held Sunday, April 26, 2009 at the Palestine Civic Center in Palestine, Texas.

I’m truly honored by the nomination and other recognition, but what makes all of this keep moving is your support by coming out to my shows, spreading the word to your friends and family, and picking up copies of the music. The music business is still pretty straight-forward when you get down to it!
