SPBGMA Award winners listed

A complete list of 2006 award winners is now posted on the SPBGMA web site. The awards were presented in Nashville on Sunday (2/5) during SPBGMA’s 23rd National Convention.

Unlike the awards given by the IBMA, which are selected in several rounds of ballots by industry professionals, the SPBGMA awards are chosen by a vote of Society members, and anyone in the general public who feels motivated to submit a ballot. One might speculate that the IBMA Awards represent a “critics’ choice,” peer-bestowed award, while the SPBGMA awards are more of fan or consumer-driven selection.

In either event, both are to be celebrated and cherished by the winners, and Bluegrass Today congratulates all the winners of the 2006 SPBGMA Bluegrass Awards.

[UPDATE]: CMT.com also has a wrap up of the SPBGMA Awards presentation, with a list of winners.
