Hi Folks,

Well, the day has FINALLY come!  We are officially announcing the nominees for the 2002 Just Plain Folks Music Awards.  This has been a 13 month long process of elimination when we started with 102,000 songs and at final count over 7800 albums and we've narrowed the field down to nominees for best album and song in a wide range of genres and categories.  To put it into perspective, we received more music from our members for this awards program than all the major labels COMBINED released last year.  How's that for a statement on the health, vitality and size of the Grassroots Music Community!

A few quick facts about this years nominees: We have roughly 700 Songs and 325 Albums nominated in over 40 genres. *  Song only  ** Album only

We have nominees this year from 48 US States and Australia, Bahamas, Canada, Cyprus, Denmark, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Northern Ireland, Spain, the Netherlands and the UK.  (And probably several others we aren't yet aware of since it isn't always clear where both the artists and writers are actually from.) 

This has been an amazing experience and challenge and we want to thank all the folks who helped us get to this stage.  Please keep in mind that we only had space to recognize a fraction of 1% of the songs submitted and only about 4% of the albums entered.  We'll be adding 4 times as many songs to our RFV channel, starting with all the current nominees and expanding to the finalists and about 2000 other great songs we found during the process.  Thanks for everyone's patience during this monumental task!
