Singing News Fan Awards Categories Update?

It’s voting time with the Singing News Fan Awards! I have to wonder, though…is it time to examine the current Singing News Fan Awards categories for an update? I mean, we have the same old categories (and often the same old winners) every year. Why not shake things up a bit?

    All radio/publication awards are about the same. Different publications always has different winners. So pick whose award you think best and butter up their readers/staff and you will be a winner.

    I have a feeling MusicScribe might be leading the pack for that last category you suggested, at least in certain circles.

      Initially I had “Artists Not Eligible For Voting” in that category, but then I wanted us to stand a chance of winning something!!

    Kyle, this is great. Made my day. As I have said many times, there’s a reason they are called the Singing News “Fan” Awards. People have their favorite singers/groups and keeping voting for them year after year after year…….. Unless new fans with different tastes jump into the voting process, nothing will change.
