2020 Grassy Award Nominations

It's here... the long awaited Grassy Nomination show airs tonight at 7pm. Voting will commence July 1st and run through the month of July. After weeks of compiling lists and days of virtual arm-wrestling, we have our 12 nominees to present to you tonight. We think you'll find it to be a very diverse list. Eligibility is simple... 1) You must still be an active artist 2) The nominated song must be in regular rotation, and 3) You didn't win the year before. The nominees are not just Bob and Utah's choice either, the on-air radio personalities at the station play a key role in selecting who should make the cut as well, based on listener requests, feedback, and their own experience in the world of radio. Our great friend Linda creates a very unique award every year to present, which we will most likely do during our cancelled The Band Jam Grass Roots Music Festival weekend, August 22.
