FRANKLIN, TENNESSEE, UNITED STATES, October 17, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — AirPlay Direct is pleased to announce that Bluegrass / Country recording artist, Alecia Nugent is now the 5th honoree to receive an AirPlay Direct “2020 Evolution Grant”.
A native of Hickory Grove, Louisiana, Alecia became the lead singer of her dad’s group, The Southland Bluegrass Band, when she was in her teens. She went on to record three albums for Rounder Records in the early 2000s, toured the U.S. extensively and performed shows in Switzerland, Italy, Scotland, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Netherlands and Canada as well. THE OLD SIDE OF TOWN is her first release in 10 years.
Now based in Nashville, Nugent was awarded SPBGMA Female Vocalist of the Year honors in 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, and won the IBMA Album of the Year award for MUSICIANS AGAINST CHILDHOOD CANCER. She has performed over 70 times on the Grand Ole Opry.
“Alecia is a very gifted and talented artist that easily walks down both country roads and bluegrass lanes," said Lynda Weingartz, CEO – AirPlay Direct. "What sets her apart in the landscape of the independent music business of 2020 is how she is constantly pursuing new business experiences.
Weingartz goes on to say, "This includes a true passion for understanding and engaging the professional music industry with her Hillbilly Goddess Music brand. She seems to be equally excited to talk about her art, or to explain how she is actively engaging her fans, and media alike. Quite frankly, she is just a lot of fun to work with in these difficult times. We are truly pleased to know Alecia, and proud to support her with this AirPlay Direct ‘2020 Evolution Grant’.”
"When I heard the news that I was the new recipient of the 2020 Evolution Grant, I couldn't believe it," says Alecia Nugent, Independent Artist. "I wanted it so badly, because as an independent artist, I know the importance of AirPlay Direct. This would be the boost I needed for my new project, and I'm so grateful for this opportunity. Thank you APD!"
