The first ever Ameripolitan Texas Night was an unqualified success! The Marlars filled in admirably on short notice playing some great honky tonk and The Daliens brought the Bakersfield sound. The Phantom Shakers kept the rockabilly faithful dancing and The legendary Dale Watson and his Lonestars closed the show in fine fashion. The weather could not have been better out in Luckenbach, the crowds came early and stayed late, and the bands represented Ameripolitan music at its best. Can’t wait ’til next year!
The Ameripolitan Music Awards have been established to give like minded individuals an opportunity to come together to celebrate and promote the music we all love. It serves as an event to rally around and we hope that it will be a source of inspiration for artists and fans alike.
This music will always survive, but for it to thrive, Artists need to continue to delight their fans with new, exciting music that honors tradition while striving to be original and fans need to make the effort to encourage these artists with their support. If The Ameripolitan Music Awards can help further this relationship, then it will be a success and continue to grow in stature to everyone’s benefit.
These awards are presented in the spirit of camaraderie and friendly competition, knowing that success for one of us helps all of us. On behalf of the Ameripolitan Music Awards organization, we thank everyone who has helped make this event possible.
Ameripolitan Music Award Nominee Selection Criteria
The most important factors when considering a candidate for the Ameripolitan Music awards are the quality and style of the original music produced by the artist.
Both recorded material and live performances are taken into account.
When possible, the selection committee has seen the artists perform live. When not possible, live performances and recorded material have been obtained directly from the artist or from the internet.
Nomination criteria in order of importance.
1. The Artist’s original material and performance should exhibit strong elements of the traditional genres they represent and display exceptional musical / lyrical creativity.
2. The nominated artists must express a desire be associated with, and agree to help promote Ameripolitan Music.
3. Nomination submissions by Artists and fans on the internet are also a factor. Though the total number of nomination submissions sent in for a given artist is considered, the work of every artist who is submitted for nomination will be evaluated.
4. Artists and bands that tour regularly are given extra consideration.
5. Though many artists may fit many of the requirements, each artist category is limited to only 5 nominees. The nominees chosen will have been determined to have best met all the criteria set forth by the selection committee.
(It is important to note that being the first year for the awards; special consideration has been paid to veteran artists who still perform, and whose extensive bodies of work will help establish the foundation for Ameripolitan music in the future.)
