2009 marks the 3rd Annual Charlotte Music Awards Red Carpet Event. To be held at the Booth Playhouse, Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, the most prestigious venue in the Carolinas.

The Charlotte Music Awards is the original awards show in the Carolinas. Its founder Jeffrey Cheen, a 40 yr. veteran of the music business, exposes participating artists, not just the winners, to his vast network of A&R execs,
Publishing companies and film & TV music directors worldwide. For bands participating from outside the Carolinas, it is a great way to get exposure in the Southeastern US.

All winners will receive a very nice golden style and heavy trophy and a swag bag.

The Thistledown Tinkers (signed with an agency and was contacted by an attendee to perform in Las Vegas), and Tropic Culture, a Latin band, have doubled their bookings since winning an award.
