TEXAS REGIONAL RADIO MUSIC AWARDS TO BE HELD AT THE CHOCTAW CASINO MARCH 29, 2014 IN DURANT, OK

DERYL DODD AND THE RANKIN TWINS RETURN AS CO-HOSTS!
AARON WATSON LEADS THE NOMINATIONS WITH FIVE!

FORT WORTH, TX (MARCH 17, 2014) – The fourth annual Texas Regional Radio Music Awards is heading across the border to the beautiful Choctaw Casino in Durant, OK. Odds are great that it guarantees a night of lucky winners hitting the awards jackpot from the Texas/Red Dirt Music scene and honoring radio broadcast professionals that spin tunes from this niche format that has grown beyond the Texas/Oklahoma borders with huge popularity. Deryl Dodd and The Rankin Twins return again to entertain the crowd with their humor, road stories and great singing voices that fans love. The evening will also feature unique blends of artistic styles of the Lone Star and Sooner states that showcase the depth of the talent that make our scene original, raw and free to be different. Performances will include: Zane Williams, Rachel Stacy, Guthrie Kennard, Aubrey Lynn England, Mario Flores, Clayton Gardner and Backseat Molly. Tickets are $17.25 in advance and $35.00 at the door. The can by purchased at www.Outhousetickets.com. The show will begin at 6:30 p.m. Room reservations for rooms can be at Choctaw Casino at 1-800-788-2464.

Aaron Watson leads the pack with five nods, close behind is the Josh Abbott Band with four, rounding out with Cody Johnson and the Randy Rogers Band with three each. Watson’s “July in Cheyenne,” tells the emotional story of how rodeo fans felt about Lane Frost’s last ride at the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo that took his life, and the bigger message was telling us all that we will see Lane on the other side due to him being saved a year before his death according to Lane’s mom. Aaron performed the song in the Arena at National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas this year to a standing ovation and Lane’s parents standing proud.

Radio Broadcasters and industry professionals will gather earlier in the day for the TRRR programming seminars beginning at 8:30 a.m. to learn latest trends for the Texas/Red Dirt Music radio markets. The guest speakers will include: Wade Jessen from Billboard Magazine, Gerrie McDowell, Gerrico Promotions, Dave Smith, TRRR Chart, Tami Millspaugh, Texas Record Chick Promotions, Linda O’brien, Westwood One, Jim Nash, The Ranch Radio Group, Will Payne, Payne Music Group and others.
