    My favorite song of the year is “Do You Hear My Cries” by Garrett Young. I really hope he wins. I haven’t heard anything new from him but I hope he has something coming soon. I hate it when I really like a song and then never hear from the artist again. But for 2017, Garrett is my favorite.

    Big congratulations to some of my favorite artists like Eileen Carey, Chuck Murphy and Christine Van Hoy. And also new artists whom I have come to love this year like Trace Thompson, Vanessa Lavoie and that Boot Scootin cowboy Brian Timmons! Thank goodness for IMN who brings us good music and keeps Indie artist on the air. I never miss your radio show!

    I love the Independent Music Network, their radio show and how they support and honor the hard working Indie Artists. God Bless all of you at IMN and congratulations to all the nominees who keep real music alive.

  6. Corey Roth says:

    “Too Sophisticated ” was a song that took a stand against bullying and for that JoAnna Michelle should win New Discovery Artist. I am very happy to see her recognized.

    Congratulations to all the nominees. And thank you IMN for supporting Indie artists, providing a place for their music to be heard and then rewarding them for their hardwork or in some cases, their blood sweat and tears. We can’t forget Buck McCoy either. Besides being the best radio host, he is one helluva an entertainer. Come to Nashville and catch him at Legend’s Corner.

      Amen Dianne. You said it all. However, Buck needs to record again soon. Will always spin him. “Top Dog” is still a favorite of mine.

    I just watched the Thadeus Project video right here on NRH’ s home page and “Picture Book” should win for Video of the Year. Check it out and I bet you agree with me.
