    I have a lot of favorites on the Country side of the world this year in the Indie arena. Callie Young is amazing and I hope we hear a lot from her next year. I also like Del Robbins. “Love Is Always 17” is one of my favorite songs of the year. And you can never go wrong with Christine VanHoy. Every single song she has released through the years has hit #1. There is a reason for that. She is an incredible singer/songwriter. Good Luck to all.

  5. Paulie Jordan says:

    I am a HUGE Callie Young fan and I hope she wins every award she is nominated for because she is amazing. I also like Buck McCoy’s songs, but I guess because he is the Host of their radio shows he can’t get nominated. But Buck is amazing too.

    • Corey Roth says:

      Hey Paulie. I am a rocker with my own band in Southern California and I like Callie’s brother Garrett Young’s sound. Callie is Country and I’m into rock and Garrett walks the line in both areas. Check her brother out. Hope he wins!

  6. Lola Lee Little says:

    I listen to the IMN shows all the time and I am hoping Del Robbins’ song “Love Is Always 17” wins. It is one of my favorite songs ever. I like Brandy Moss Scott’s “The Night The Lights Went Out in Georgia.” Her voice is so good and I also liked “Daddy’s Blue Jean Jacket” by Mike Kuster. IMN plays the best Country music on their Country Show.
