GOOD LUCK! Waterloo's Western Swing Authority Nominated for Ameripolitan Music Awards! Vote for Them!

Waterloo's amazing band, The Western Swing Authority have been nominated in two categories (Western Swing Group and Western Swing Female) of the 2016 Ameripolitan Music Awards.  It's great seeing an incredible local band getting some international recognition!

From the awards website: The Ameripolitan Music Awards were created to benefit and acknowledge artists whose work does not readily conform to the tastes of today’s “country” or other music genres and organizations. It also provides fans with a means of finding these artists and their music.
Other Canadians in the running are London's Tara Dunphy for Honky Tonk Female, The Neon Stars from Vancouver (Rockabilly Group), Montreal's Bloodshot Bill (Outlaw Male) and Paul Pigat (Rockabilly Male, Musician), who's originally from Toronto and now lives on the West Coast. Former Canadian Redd Volkaert was nominated for Best Musician as well.
