Yallwire Announces Winners For Inaugural Music Video Awards!
Yallwire is excited to announce the winners of its inaugural Music Video Awards!
In case you need a recap, Yallwire programmers recently chose videos that have proved particularly successful with Yallwire's dedicated audience and placed them in four categories: Video Artist of the Year, Best New Artist of the Year, Best Yallwire Interview and Best Inspirational Video of the Year.
Nominees were selected by their performance on Yallwire in 2011. Winners were selected via polls by the 430,500 country music fans on Yallwire's official Facebook page.
Yallwire saw hundreds of amazing videos come through this year from up-and-coming artists, country music veterans and all artists in between, and quite a few videos really stood out. While Trace Adkins' "Just Fishin'" and Rascal Flatts' "I Won't Let Go" proved to be huge hits, Zac Brown Band's touching video for "Colder Weather" took home the prize for Video of the Year.
Country newcomers Jason Sturgeon and Wayne Mills Band each had hugely successful video premieres on Yallwire this year with "The Cover" and "The Last Honky Tonk" respectively, but DJ Miller made viewers fall in love at first sight with his video for "Between Sundays," resulting in his win for Best New Artist.
Yallwire's production crew made their way to Nashville throughout the year, catching interviews with some of our favorite country music artists, including a Reba McEntire and a tribute to Johnny Cash. But with a song that involves three country stars like Jason Aldean, Brantley Gilbert and Colt Ford, the "Dirt Road Anthem" #1 Party really caught our viewers' eyes for Interview of the Year!
Yallwire was flooded with music videos that struck an emotional chord with many of our viewers. Martina McBride's "I'm Gonna Love You Through It" and Newssong's "One True God" touched country fans' hearts with their powerful songs, but Teea Goans lifted spirits everywhere with her video for "Letter From God."
Congratulations to all of our nominees and winners, and a big thanks to every artist that made 2011 another amazing year in country music!
