At the end of February, Robin had just gotten into her car after a meeting to kick off a new freelance writing project. She started the car and checked her phone. There was a notification from Thea:
“Congrats to The Cow Ponies for their WAMI nomination for Country Artist of the Year!!!”
OMG, Robin wrote back, we had no idea. Thanks for the heads-up!
And thank you to the Wisconsin Area Music Industry organization for the nomination. We’ve been on Cloud 9 about it, and are extremely honored to be included among the eight nominees from around the state in this category. We seriously did not even imagine being nominated, and are so happy we have been.
Sunday, March 25 is the WAMI Nominee Reception at Saloon on Calhoun in Brookfield (where John & Robin just performed a few weeks ago at the Amplified Artist Sessions), and we’ll be there. The 38th Annual WAMI Awards ceremony is Sunday, April 15 in Appleton, WI this year, and we’ll be heading up for that too. In the meantime, and for a long time afterward, we’ll be floating on the ether and looking forward to playing our music for you throughout the year. Thank you, WAMI! And thanks to all of you who nominated us! xoxo
