Ameripolitan Awards 2018

Post by kev » Wed Feb 14, 2018 8:56 am

The 2018 Ameripolitan Awards were held last night in Memphis.

Honky Tonk Female – Brennen Leigh
Honky Tonk Male – Luke Bell
Honky Tonk Group – The Reeves Brothers
Outlaw Female – Nikki Lane
Outlaw Male – Cody Jinks
Outlaw Group – Whitey Morgan and the 78’s
Chris Scruggs – Musician on the Year
Venue of the Year – Sportsmen’s Tavern, Buffalo NY
Festival of the Year – New England Shake Up, Sturbridge MA
DJ of the Year – W.B. Walker, Old Soul Radio Show Podcast
Western Swing Female – Sophia Johnson
Western Swing Male – Billy Mata
Western Swing Group – The Carolyn Sills Combo

Good to see my mate Billy Mata get the Western Swing Male Award. And look at the WS Female - Sophia Johnson, ex of The Toy Hearts and, of course, sister of Hannah. Ironic, isn't it - Spohia's being lauded by the Ameripolitans at the same time as Hannah's being lambasted by the BCMA!! Look at for Sophia's album, "One Year" ... any album that features both "Big Beaver" and "Beaumont Rag" can't be bad!!

Its also funny, that one of our own is doing rather well in the US and the BCMA ignore it.

That all said of the winners, looking at them I would say all well deserved. The Reeves Brothers are the ones that stuck out for me.
Ask forgiveness, not permission.

I must admit I wasn't familiar with the Reeves Brothers so I checked them out on YouTube - good stuff! I'll have a listen on Spotify next.
