On Nov. 19, the Third Annual Charlotte Music Awards will be held at Booth Playhouse in an effort to recognize music and musicians from the Carolinas.
Fourteen artists will be performing, including Simplified, The Donna Duncan Blues Band, Jeff Luckadoo, Lyra Shines, The Jones Bros., Ida Devine, Mckeve and Dre Money and Jaz.
Among the awards being given is the "Lifetime Achievement Award," which will be awarded to radio DJ James Edward "Foxx" Reddish for his 42 years of radio service. Winners are selected by the Awards Board of Advisors -- "The Charlotte Music Awards has a Board of Advisors who are asked to nominate three artists in each category. Once all the nominations are turned in they are tallied and the winners are the artists who receive the most nominations."
The event starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 and $22. For more information, go to www.CharlotteMusicAwards.org.
