The Akademia Music Awards

Two months ago I was contacted through the BLACKKISS facebook page by a radio DJ from Los Angeles. He told me that he really liked the song "Riding Free" and he strongly suggested that I consider submitting the song to the Akademia Music Awards based in LA. I was a bit reluctant, but after some counseling from those close to me I submitted the song. And long behold three weeks ago I got notification via email that my song "Riding Free" had won in their Best Americana/Country Song category. 

I must admit, it knocked the air out of me. I never thought, in my wildest dreams that I would win an award from such a highly contested awards competition. Nonetheless, I had won and I had to deal with it. I was a little scared, but it was a good kind of scared. Success and recognition still make me feel uneasy because I am my worst critic. So I had to convince myself that this was real and it couldn't be taken away from me. 

So I accepted the invite to attend the Akademia Awards Gala in Los Angeles on the night of April 21. I am coming LA, I've had such a great relationship with you and this only makes this move along a lot smoother. Let's make it a night to remember....
