Lexington Music Awards organizers David McLean and Heather Parrish in front of the Lyric Theatre. The inaugural awards ceremony will take place Feb. 22.
On February 22, while Emmy-nominated celebrities line up on the red carpet in Los Angeles, Lexington will host its own awards ceremony honoring a unique pool of local talent that exists in and around our city.
Taking place at the Lyric Theatre, the inaugural Lexington Music Awards (or LEXI Awards, as organizers have dubbed it) will honor Lexington area musicians and music industry folks in 30 different categories, ranging from best venue to song of the year. The event is the brainchild of Lexington music teacher and musician David McLean, who said he tossed the idea for the event around for several years before deciding late last year that the timing was right to go for it.
