Willie Nelson wins in the 9513′s First Annual Country Music Awards

awards

The nice folks at www.the9513.com, one of my blogs I read regularly, have posted the results of their first annual Country Music Awards, and Willie Nelson received the award for Country Music Artist of the Year.

In 2008 Willie Nelson released an adventurous (if not entirely successful) new album with producer Kenny Chesney (Moment of Forever), collaborated with trumpeter Wynton Marsalis on a full-length album titled Two Men With The Blues, starred with Toby Keith in a movie (Beer For My Horses), co-wrote a Western novel (A Tale Out Of Luck), had a biography (An Epic Life) and a Box Set (One Hell of a Ride) released, and played dozens of shows all around the country.

Not bad for a guy who celebrated his 75th birthday in April.

Nelson edged out Patty Loveless to capture the title of Country Artist of the Year in The 9513’s 1st Annual Country Music Awards, for which ballots were tabulated from three voting blocs: The 9513’s staff, readers who made 50 or more comments in the voting period, and the public at large.
