What's up Knoxville! It's time to give your favorite local bands some recognition for their accomplishments in the Knoxville Music Warehouse inaugural Knoxville Music Awards!
Shoutout to our amazing sponsors, Sweet P's BBQ, Casual Pint Downtown, The Troubadour Roadhouse and Performance Hall, and Rhythm N' Blooms for making this happen. BBQ, beer, and good music. Knoxville's the best.
Here's how it works:
There will be a Nomination Round that lasts from now until 11:59pm on Sunday, April 1st. Then on Tuesday, April 3rd, we'll announce the nominees. There will be five nominees for each Major Music Category and four for each of the Minor Music and Extra-Music Categories. Then there will be a two-week voting period to decide the winners.
Since this is the first one, the window of eligibility is a little longer than it will be in the future. For albums, EPs, songs, and all other categories the official release date must be between 1/1/2017 and 2/28/2018 to be eligible for consideration.
Every nomination will be seen by a person and tallied by hand (just like our forefathers did online reader's polls) so don't worry too much about spelling or even picking the exact category. Also, feel free to nominate for as many categories as you want. The more the better, in fact.
Here's the best part: Each time you nominate someone, you'll be entered for a chance to win some cool prizes including tickets to Blank Range at Pretentious Beer Co. on March 31st, and the big prize: TWO WEEKEND PASSES TO RHYTHM N' BLOOMS! So get to it!
