Apologies for not getting these next few updates done sooner. Hubby came home and kidnapped me for a long-overdue vacation. He’s back to work now and so am I, with a long To Do list in front of me.
First off, the TMAs are just 4 weeks away! Man. I have to remember to ask Lucky and Jinelle what they were thinking scheduling it way earlier this year. LOL Before vacation I introduced you to Brant Lee Croucher… one of the nominees for Male Vocalist of the Year. Brant was kind enough to stop in and leave a comment and send me a personal email. That’s the kind of networking I like to see.
Today I’m featuring a guy and his band who are not only nominated in three categories this year but carry the title of Male Vocalist of the Year for 2010 AND 2011!
I’m talking about Dave Fenley of Dave Fenley and the Good Deal. His edgy voice carries soul through every note. With every strum of the guitar you can feel the emotions he pours into both the lyrics and the music. On his most recent album, ‘A Minute to Breathe’, you can hear the influences of Travis Tritt in ‘Really Good Man’. The folksy blues tones of Joe Crocker come through in ‘Sooner’, which is nominated for Song of the Year. Dave Fenley and the Good Deal are also up for Vocal Group of the Year, for their contribution to the ‘A Minute to Breathe’ album. If music and talent only get better over time, and with 2 MVAs under his belt, you have to think he could easily add another award to his list of accomplishments!
