Freelance journalist DEBORAH EVANS PRICE was the recipient of the 2013 CMA MEDIA ACHIEVEMENT AWARD, presented backstage at the 47th ANNUAL CMA AWARDS,
"I'm so honored to win the CMA MEDIA ACHIEVEMENT AWARD this year, especially when I think of all the wonderful journalists who precede me like CHET FLIPPO, my beloved former bureau chief at BILLBOARD," said PRICE.

I'm blessed to get up every day and write about music I love and am so touched by this recognition."
