cbma-considerations-2014

I asked last week for songs and albums from the CBMA artists to be considered for award nominations this year. I didn’t get as many as I thought I would. Here are some that I did get, with comments from the artists and fans. I removed the email address and contact info and just provided the information as submitted. I did remove some of the submissions that were not serious about the form… even thought I got a good laugh on them. The song has to be recorded to make this list below.. There are other requirements by CBMA to be eligible for nomination. I left a few on here that might not be eligible.

If you have a nomination ballot, please read this before you make your selections this year. This list may grow once it goes live.. so check back before you submit your nomination ballot. If you would like to add to his list.. click here

Here you go… with what I got so far

Beach Music needs more original songs…not just remaking covers. Our intent, as performers & writers is to try and write the best originals in the industry.

Hi..I’m Mitch Simpson of the Summerdaze Band and we are all members of the CBMA. This is our second CD released this past February 2014 on the KHP label. Our CD release party was at the Spanish Galleon in NMB. Something Fried has received considerable radio play and the follow up song, “Somebody Throw’d Bad Luck on Me” is moving up a lot of charts quickly. We are told that a third from this CD “Shoot that Moon” will hit the charts soon. We have been playing since 2005. Our first CD was “All Summer Long.” Since 2005 we have played mainly private parties and festivals across the southeast and only a few clubs this past year with more scheduled! Thank you for your help in getting the word out.

This is a great song…very reminiscent of when beach music was in it’s “Hay Day”. When ever I hear this it gets stuck in my head for days…great song to shag to and the BigTime Party Band should be commended for writing, and performing, such an excellent song…

This is such a great song- it tells a story that so many young adults shared. Great rhythm and beat for shagging! This band gives their all to their fans and always deliver. It is apparent they enjoy and appreciate their fans and have a love for good wholesome music that can be heard by all age groups.

Just a great great song. Even though I helped in the creation, I personally think it is the best sounding song that I have heard this year. Pat did a great job on this song. I never get tired hearing it.
