The 2022 Georgia Country Awards will be held on Friday night, Nov 11th, at Kerrigan's Lounge in Lyons, Ga.
The voting in the 1st round will start Wednesday, June 1st, 2022 at noon. You'll see the ballots below. This is the first round or "nomination round". If there is any act not on the ballot that a fan feels should be, please email your nomination in at email@example.com. If that act qualifies, they will be added. The period for adding any nomination will last for three weeks, ending on June 22nd. After that date, the ballot is locked. Voting for the 1st round will end at noon on Wednesday, July 13th. The votes will be tabulated from the fans. Then added to the votes from the GC Awards panel, to determine the semi finalist. They will be announced on the semi final ballot on Wed, July 20th at noon.
Qualifications for artist for the awards: Every act must either be based IN Georgia. They must show this on their music page. They CAN be living in Nashville, but still has to be performing at least 50% of their shows IN Georgia still. They MUST call themselves a COUNTRY act first. They can say they play rock, etc,, but country music must be their main music they perform. For VENUES: Every venue HAS to book country music acts at least 50% of the time. Definition of Band of the Year and Traditional Artist of the Year is that band of the year nominees are any BAND that has a band name. This can not be for The Bobby Smith Band as the singer Bobby Smith would be under the Male category. And and band that is called Bobby Smith and the Dixie Catus Band, still Bobby Smith would get the nomination, not the band. Traditional Artist of the Year is any act, male, female or band that plays mostly traditional or classic country will qualify. Also, The GCA does not have a teen ballot. We've not had one in 10+ years. But will will announce the teen artist of the year finalist in October.
Below is the ballots. Only ONE vote PER ROUND. Or per IPA address. (Internet Provider Address). This means if you and family or business has just ONE IPA, only one vote from that IPA. You CAN vote again from another IPA. Note: If we suspect any nominee of any suspicious activity, we will investigate and if guilty, could be removed from the ballot. If you feel you have NOT voted but cant vote, you CAN EMAIL in your vote to Vote@Georgia-Country.com
