Veterans this ones for you.
CONGRATULATIONS to all the nominees, winners and everyone involved with the 20th Annual AWA Will Rogers Awards. It was a packed house with the most talented people in the entire western world, coming from England, Argentina, Canada and all points in the US. It is a privilege to be involved with such talented individuals, and, for that I thank you. We give nothing to anyone, they work hard and earn everything. We are simply a once a year event to let the world know that the Country and Western community is alive and well and growing by leaps and bounds, with a quality that is second to none. Below is a complete list of all winners. Thank you for coming. You really made my evening…
