British Country Music Awards 2016 nominations announced

Postby livewirer on Sun Jul 17, 2016 4:02 pm

Awards to be hosted by BBC Radio 2 Country presenter Baylen Leonard
Nominations were announced on Monday July 11
The British Country Music Association (?) are excited to announce that the BCMAwards weekend is to be held on Saturday 29th October and Sunday 30th October 2016 at The Heston Venue (formerly the Concorde Suite), Heston Sports Ground, Crane Lodge Road, Cranford, Middlesex TW5 9PQ.

RAINTOWN lead the pack with 6 Nominations!
One wonders if there are any voting criteria in place.
It continues to be more a case of the "secret" BCMAward panel making acts to be a “good fit” in a category
The BCMAward committee loved Belle Cannon's album EVOLUTION to be considered a nominee. Can't find any evidence that this album actually exists?!
