COUNTRY RADIO BROADCASTERS, INC. has announced CURB/NASHVILLE duo THE JUDDS as its 2011 CRB “Career Achievement Award” recipient and former SONY MUSIC NASHVILLE Chairman JOE GALANTE as the recipient of the CRB “President’s Award.”
WYNONNA & NAOMI JUDD and GALANTE will receive their awards at the COUNTRY RADIO HALL OF FAME DINNER AND AWARDS ceremony, which will be held TUESDAY, MARCH 1, 2011, at 6p (CT) in the NASHVILLE CONVENTION CENTER BALLROOM.
The CRB "Career Achievement Award" is presented to an individual artist or act that has made a significant contribution to the development and promotion of Country music and Country radio through their creativity, vision, performance or leadership.
CRB President MIKE CULOTTA said: “Since their arrival on the Country music scene in the early ‘80s, THE JUDDS have been trailblazers, trendsetters and hit-makers, and they are still entertaining millions of fans around the world with their music. Country radio would not be the same without these two fantastic ladies, and because of that, we are honoring them with the CRB Career Achievement Award.”
The "President's Award" is presented to an individual who has made a significant contribution to the marketing, production, growth and development of the COUNTRY RADIO SEMINAR and the multiple services that COUNTRY RADIO BROADCASTERS provides to the Country radio and music communities.
CULOTTA added: “Very few people have made as much of an impact in our industry as JOE GALANTE. The acts that he has worked with during his almost 40 years in the business have also been some of Country radio’s biggest superstars. He has always been a friend to Country radio, and I have a feeling there are plenty more great things ahead for him in this business. It’s an honor to announce JOE GALANTE as our 2011 President’s Award recipient.”
Also being honored that night are the 2011 COUNTRY RADIO HALL OF FAME On-Air Personality inductees DALE CARTER, BARRY KENT and LEE ROGERS, as well as Radio inductees CHARLIE COOK, the late DENE HALLAM and BILL PAYNE.
