The UKCMSA Awards
I hope you're all keeping well, it's wonderful to celebrate the good times when we can come together and enjoy country music. It's been amazing to be on this year's panel for the UKCMSA awards hosted by Belles and Gals and sponsored by Scarlet River Management.
It's been wonderful listening to so many UK artists and also some international favourites from across the pond. Congratulations to all the nominees, you have all done so well and it will be exciting to see what you bring out this year. Fingers crossed we get back to attending live music gigs later this year.
Presented by Dominic Crooke with performances by Connor Christian (The Southern Gothic), Harriet Rose, Charlotte Young, Two Ways Home, Louise Parker, Emilia Quinn, Jake Morrell and Kezia Gill.
