Awards Poll Update – 10/17

viewpointOnly 10 days left to vote! The poll will remain open until Thursday Oct. 27 at noon. Please be sure to vote before then.

In this week’s poll update we note that 56% of our registered users have now voted. This figure is down from the 60% we reported on Oct 10. The readership of Bluegrass Today has increased by 13% in the same period.

There aren’t many changes to report this week. Most of the categories have not seen significant change.

Emerging Artist of the Year – last week Cherryholmes had widened their lead to 7% over the Grascals. This week that lead has widened once more to 10%.

Dobro Player of the Year – previously this category looked like it would go to Rob Ickes with little contest. However, this week his lead has narrowed to only 3% over Jerry Douglas.

Guitar Player of the Year – this category has also narrowed up considerably. Tony Rice is still the leader, but only by 1% over Tim Stafford.

That’s all I have to comment on this week. If you haven’t voted, be sure you do so in the next 10 days.
