Dean, Stewart and Lamon earn NMW Award Nominations

The 2012 NMW Award Nominees have just been announced and Lamon Records along with two of its artists are among this year’s honorees.

Truck-driver turned country singer Bobby Dean is once again nominated as “Breakthrough Artist of the Year.”  He won that honor last year.  2012 has proven to be another stellar year for the Kent, WA singer.  His single Me and George Strait hit Number 1 on the NMW Country Chart at the end of the summer.  And the release of his Nashville-first “Another Last Chance” short movie featuring music from his album Country Country has received critical acclaim and is scheduled to screen at several film festivals in 2013.  Dean’s current single You Can’t Drink ‘Em All is currently on the NMW and Music Row Country Charts and going for adds at Billboard Indicator and MediaBase Activator stations now.

Teen country singer-songwriter Courtney Stewart has been nominated as “New Artist of the Year.”  Stewart’s single For All The World To See reached the Top 5 on NMW’s Country Chart earlier this year.  This Knox, PA native has received great responses and reviews of her music and videos from he debut EP “Telling You.”  And her many live performances in 2012 included opening for Justin Moore at the Warren County Fair in PA.  Stewart continues to write new songs, perform and attend high school, balancing a life as a country music artist and honor student.  Watch for more great things to come from this talented singer-songwriter.

Lamon Records was nominated as Country Record Label of the Year.  A premier indie label, music publisher and entertainment company, Lamon has spent 2012 celebrating its 50th anniversary as a company, an amazing feat in today’s ever changing industry.  Among the festivities and highlights of the year include Lamon’s Artist Showcase at the CMA Fan Fair and Music Fest in June, and a fun filled night at the label’s 50th anniversary celebration on the world famous Midnight Jamboree at the Ernest Tubb Record Shop in Nashville, broadcast live on WSM Radio 650 immediately following the Grand Ole Opry.
