Texas Regional Music Awards Highlights

(L-R): Randy Rogers Band's Randy Rogers and Brady Black

Industry professionals gathered at Texas Music’s biggest night at the Texas Regional Music Awards to honor radio and music before a packed house at the Arlington Music Hall. Deryl Dodd and Ali Dee hosted the show.

Eli Young Band was the night’s big winner with four awards including Group of The Year, Single of the Year for “Crazy Girl,” Song of the Year for “Crazy Girl,” and Video of the Year for “Crazy Girl.” The band was unable to attend because they were on tour with Faith Hill and Tim McGraw in Australia, but they sent their thanks saying, “We are sorry that we can’t be there tonight. Texas is not only the cornerstone of our career – it’s home. We are proud to be a part of and a representative of the Texas Music Family, along with so many of our friends. Thank you so much for your support of us and our music.”

The Randy Rogers Band was another big winner for the evening, taking home Entertainer of the Year. The group built a huge grassroots fan base in Texas and neighboring states before landing a major record deal on MCA Records. The band’s second award of the night was for Album of the year for Burning The Day, produced by the Randy Rogers Band and Paul Worley. “We appreciate our fans always supporting us out on the road and sticking with us all these years,” said Rogers after the wins.
