The British Country Music Awards (BCMA) has honored Martha Moore with the International Services To Industry Award for her contributions to country music. Moore, President of so much MOORE media—a Nashville-based publicity and marketing firm—joins a prestigious list of honorees that includes Big Machine Records’ President Scott Borchetta, the late Jeff Walker and Country Music Association (CMA) Director of International Relations Bobbi Boyce.

“Keeping a global perspective has been a vital component to my clients’ success,” Moore observes. “I’ve always been driven to truly ‘serve’ the artists on my roster and it’s always gratifying when it ‘works.’ To be recognized with this particular award really hits home. I am deeply honored.”

BCMA President Lee Williams presented Moore with the crystal “tower” last week in Nashville.

The 12th annual BCMA Awards were held Oct. 21 and 22 in Wolverhampton, UK. Hosted by Baylen Leonard from the BBC, the event featured four hours of music and award presentations and was filmed for future broadcast. Popular American performers included Sarah Darling, American Young, and so much MOORE media client Southern Halo, who accepted the award on Moore’s behalf. International honorees included Drake White (International Song of the Year, “Makin’ Me Look Good Again”), Zac Brown Band (International Album of the Year, Welcome Home), and Jenn Bostic (International Touring Act).

Moore kicked off her music career in radio, and moved to Nashville in 1976 to pursue a job at WLAC. She transitioned to the label side of the business shortly thereafter and enjoyed tenures at ABC, MCA and Mercury/PolyGram Records, where she worked with Jerry Reed, KISS, Bon Jovi, The Bar-Kays and more. She opened the doors of somuchMOORE media in 1988, signed Johnny Cash as her first client, and a host of other talented artists followed. She enjoyed a 15-year professional relationship with Hank Cochran, and worked with his family during his posthumous induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Moore also represented Jim Ed Brown & The Browns and Fred Foster throughout their Hall Of Fame honors. She was inducted into the SOURCE Hall of Fame in August 2017.
