The Washington D.C. area has its own Music Awards, The WAMMIEs, and Mike’s Mountain Monsters of Maryland is a finalist for Best Country/Americana Album of 2023!

Finalists were decided by public voting on the Wammie Awards’ web site throughout January 2024.

Judging takes place over the next few weeks.

Winners will be announced during a televised broadcast show on April 20, 2024 at Capital One Hall in Tysons, Virginia.

“I am beyond humbled and shocked by this. Even I thought I was taking a crazy risk with my concept of a Halloween album based on all original songs I wrote about monsters in Frederick County, Maryland. The love and support I have already received was more than enough to make me happy. This is just the icing on the cake. Adding to the surprise is that I’m up with these other talented regional artists,” Mike shared.

Mike’s nomination as a finalist comes the same week that he was named Independent Music Network’s Favorite Male Country Artist.

Thanks for your feedback! I really appreciate your input! - Mike
