Sam Grow wins Maryland Music Awards “Country Artist of the Year”

Rams Head Live- The 2018 Maryland Music Awards were held on Saturday, December 15th at Rams Head Live in Power Plant.  Sixteen categories were up for grabs with almost 100 Maryland artists and bands/groups nominated.

Southern Maryland was well represented in the Country Artists of the Year category as our own Sam Grow, Philip Michael Parsons and Wesley Spangler were nominated. Parsons and Grow were also nominated in the “Best Performer” category.

Josh Riley, another SoMd Local Music artists was nominated in the ” Best Blues Artists” category, but according to his Facebook Page Saturday night he did not win.

But Southern Maryland Music made the biggest splash this year with three of it’s artists nominated for Country Artist of The Year. With three very talented musicians nominated(Grow, Spangler, & Parsons),there was a pretty high chance the win would come from our area. Around 11:00 p.m. last night, Sam Grow took to Facebook and thanked hi loyal fans for the vote.

The Maryland Music awards have not posted a listed of all winners as of Sunday morning. The Southern Maryland Chronicle will publish the list once publicly available.

We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account.
