    I like that these are fan voted but what fan knows radio promoters and record labels?

    These nominated artist have worked hard to develope their own look and distinctive sound. What a freaking joke last night!! If I were RR I would kick your fat ass. You’re the Texas Music version of an Elvis personator. Enjoy your ten minutes of fame and take your rude ass rep when you go!!
    Hats off to Kyle, Wade, and others for Showing class even when the obvious was developing live.
    A disappointing night to what could be a cool annual event.

    I’m just wondering what kind of dumbasses voted for Josh abbot?!?!?

    Actually, Josh busts his fat little ass to win those awards. It’s a hard business, and he’s a hard-working guy. Mad props pudding.

    Rc Cola- grew up with musicians my entire life!

    I know exactly what goes into a music career, and yes it’s hard work, but I don’t think copying someone deserves respect (or awards) but either way he’s still a prick.

    Thanks Rita for posting all the winners. Glad you posted the pics and make sure you come to next year’s event. Date and times TBA soon. Thanks to all the fans for voting. Over 7K folks voted in all 3 rounds.

    This is an insignificant award show. Anyone in attendance at LSM Awards last night can attest to that. Any radio driven award show in Texas is a sham because fans have no say. Just like the mainstream big brothers, Texas airplay is only about what radio promoters push, not what fans want to hear.

    Support one major award show like LSM and stop with these bullshit, zero credibility, half-assed radio awards.

    Texas Music radio is a complete joke. The chart is a complete joke.

    Josh works as hard as anyone out there, and is one of the very few emerging artists from the scene. Yes he has a radio promoter who gets him tons of play, but he does work hard and makes good decisions. Good for him. Josh is not the problem. The problem is radio promoters and gutless program directors and DJ’s who will not play anything that a promoter hasn’t gotten their $4000.00 to send them.

    Was there...

    I realize that it was the first year of the awards but to be honest the production value was crap. The entire event was a clusterfuck. There is enough music to go around for as many awards shows as they can be but maybe next year more time and effort will go into the organization.

    Is there enough quality music to go around? No. That dilution is why so many shitty bands exist in the first place. We need to stop giving everyone a ribbon just because they participate. We are becoming the special Olympics of music.

    Some people are like slinkies, good for nothing but you still smile when you push them down the stairs.

    So tired of hearing how Texas music is “diluted”. I admitt there are people / bands that I don’t like. But all that I know do work thier butts off to get heard. (even if you think they sound like crap).

    Dublin blues

    If you live in Lubbock you know that 105.3 is the worst radio station in the world yet they won!! Also every hour is the Josh Abbott hour in which he gets spun 3 times an hour along with William Clark Green and Brandon Adams!! The last 2 don’t even get spun anywhere outside or Lubbock !!

    Sorry you don’t like hearing it Regina, but it is true. Anyone with a guitar can be in a band now days and someone will support it because they are “Texas Music.” If you have a computer and a website, you can be a “Texas Music” station. And the you can support the no talent hacks who will treat you like you are something special. Enjoy your little diluted, wast of time circle jerk.
