  7. Jackey Cutler says:

    I have noticed several people said “Keep The Music Alive.” I think that is exactly what Indie Artists do and I am happy they are getting recognized for all their contributions, especially now, during this unusual time in history. I listen to IMN shows because of the music. I loved “Starlight” and was happy it won. Also “Days” made me long for times past and I love any song Joe Taylor sings. So, I too am saying to all artists: Keep The Music Alive.

  8. Dianne Dixon says:

    Congratulations to all the winners. For me, coming from Nashville, I was happy to see Briana Calhoun win because I really like her song, “Nashville.” Good work Briana and I am looking forward to more from you in the future. I also think Csllie Young is someone to watch in the future. She doesn’t seem to have recorded a lot of songs, but the 2 she has given us are very special. I hope she has more coming soon. I think she has the potential to really make it big in our industry. Go for it Callie. Thanks to IMN for honoring all the talented men and women.
