The focus of the Carolina Music Awards is to recognize Carolina artists in Rock, Hip Hop, Youth, Bluegrass, Americana, Country and R&B. We are excited to add Darius Rucker as a supporter of the CM Awards along with the legendary Co-Founders Roberta Flack & Randy Travis. Every year we look to make this event more and more beneficial to Carolina artists and to support the great music created right here in the Carolinas.
We are focused on one singular objective, the development of the music industry in the Carolinas while encouraging growth in our music, both present and future.
The CM Awards focuses on the hottest music and artists in the Carolinas in most genres; however we will honor artists outside the Carolinas as well.
NOMINATIONS, VOTING AND WINNING
The CM Awards is designed like a People’s Choice Award show: fans and supporters decide who wins the awards. First we take nominations on our website. The top nominated artists are reviewed by our industry panel and from those nominations the CM Awards Nominees are chosen. From those nominees, the people get to vote. If your favorite artist did not get nominated, you can still write in that person’s name! So the CM Awards gives THE PEOPLE two chances for their voices to be heard; during the nominations process and during the final award voting process, hence we are truly an awards show, BY THE PEOPLE AND FOR THE PEOPLE.
The CM Awards Advisory Board is made of various industry professionals, from producers to PD/MD of radio stations, to music writers to record label executives. Together they guide our hands as we seek to produce the top multi genre music award show in the Southeast. The Carolina Music Awards!
