Great News! Also, it's very unexpected news, as there were numerous nominees in the various categories. The CD (Johnny Case and his Texas Swingtet) was nominated in four categories, and has become one of five finalists in the Duo/Group category of AWA Awards. The Academy of Western Artists will present their awards ceremony and show on March 16 in Fort Worth, Texas. I hope to attend just to be part of this event. I'm grateful to have been nominated for this album of Texas Swing featuring two of my favorite veteran players, Billy Briggs and Walter Lyons.
