New Music Weekly magazine has just announced the winners for their annual New Music Weekly Awards issue and Lamon Records Nashville’s traditional country artist Bobby Dean is among this year’s winners.
Named “Male Country Breakthrough Artist of the Year,” the award culminates a year of accomplishments and successes for the singing truck-driver from Kent, Washington (near Seattle). From his first 2011 chart single “Hank on the Radio” to the follow up singles “Rebound” and “White Lightning or Pink Champagne,” which recently broke the Top 80 on Nashville’s industry leading secondary radio chart Music Row, radio programmers and DJs across the country and around the world have responded to Bobby Dean’s traditional, country sound.
The winners of the NMW Awards were based on votes from special polling data at radio stations, programmers, industry executives, as well as music fans online. In addition to major and independent artists, the Awards also honor record labels, radio stations, programmers and industry professionals.
Check out the brand new CD from Bobby Dean entitled Country Country, available at iTunes, Amazon and other fine record outlets. Bobby’s new single “Me and George Strait” will ship to radio on April 9th.
