In 2012, the Alabama Music Awards Organization was founded with the sole purpose to give recognition to the vast array of entertainers, musicians, and journalists on a local, regional, and national level.
This organization’s other purpose is to provide support and nourishment to those in the musical community in the entire state of Alabama. Music industry professionals and musicians who reside or are natives of Alabama determine recipients of these awards. The Alabama Music Awards show is the first award show that puts the spotlight on and caters to an eclectic genre of music and its many influences in the state of Alabama.
Alabama has a deep and rich musical heritage that has given the world impeccable vocalists, instrumentalists, and composers whom were and still are very influential in the music industry. Alabama’s musical legacy is rooted in traditional folk and spiritual music which was introduced to this nation by way of enslaved Africans through European immigration.
