    I am so grateful The Independent Music Network honors the hard working men and women in the Indie music world.

    Garrett Young rocks and should win every category he is in! And his sister Callie is as talented as she is pretty.

    Garrett Young is one talented dude. I saw him live in LA a couple times and he needs to come back here and get serious because he has what it takes to make it big. I know because I use to front a band but we were never as good as The Garrett Young Collective. Hope he wins some of these awards. He deserves it.
