Only 17 days left to vote! The poll will remain open until Thursday Oct. 27 at noon. Please be sure to vote before then.
Our weekly poll updates have been moved to Monday mornings now. In this week’s poll update we note that 60% of our registered users have now voted. This figure is up from the 58% we reported on Oct 1. The readership of Bluegrass Today has increased by 9% in the same period.
Entertainer of the Year – Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver hold a 10% lead, having lost 2% while Rhonda Vincent gained 2%
Vocal Group of the Year Has seen a similar slip for Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver as Blue Highway and Mountain Heart have each gained 1%
Song of the Year – Rain Please Go Away (Alison Krauss & Union Station-performer, Del McCoury-writer) has strengthened it’s lead in this category to a 4% margin
Emerging Artist of the Year – last week Cherryholmes had what I referred to as “a precarious lead” of only 1% over the Grascals. This week that lead has widened into a solid 7%.
Several of the other categories continue to be very tight but have not seen significant change since our last update.
