The Ameripolitan Music Awards have always been an interesting event for me out there in Texas, and finally Mr. Dale Watson has moved it to Memphis Tennessee, so I reckon I wanted to go. I contacted them and I’m VERY BLESSED to have been chosen to cover this event.

As soon as voting begins I shall begin promoting this event even more, and I’ll be bringing you a LOT of coverage from Memphis in 2018. This past spring I hosted a stage in Kansas City at Westport Roots Festival, and Mr. Dale Watson was one of my main acts. I learned about the move of the awards event, and made my decision to go at that time. So here I go off to the social media realm to share this event, and I’ll be updating this article weekly for you so you can keep up on what’s going on in Memphis.

Saturday, February 10 – Outlaw and Honky Tonk live music showcases at The Guest House at Graceland Theater 6pm to 9pm

Sunday, February 11 – Western Swing and Rockabilly live music showcases at The Guest House at Graceland Theater 6pm to 9pm

Monday, February 12 – Ameripolitan Fashion Show at The Guest House at Graceland Theater 3pm to 5pm

Tuesday, February 13 – The 5th Annual Ameripolitan Music Awards show in the Main Ballroom at The Guest House at Graceland 8pm to 11:30pm

I’ll be writing MANY articles for this event, and this one is the very first for this event. I’m going to be researching the hotels in this area, and all other forms of information. I’m going to link ALL of the choices and how to vote on YOUR favorite ones as well. YOU can click on this link HERE to purchase tickets to the event, and as SOON AS voting opens you’ll be able to research everyone to choose.
