As we do each year, we announce the Lifetime Achievement Award recipients in advance of the actual show...and this year we'll also announce the other categories in advance due to the venue restrictions. More on that - award recipients, venue, date, times, etc - very soon!
And so, it is my honor to present to you the 7th Lexi Music Awards recipients for Lifetime Achievement!
Wallace "Gator" Harrison
Y'all probably know Les from Exile, Gator from running sound for countless acts, Tom from WEKU, and Walter from the Herald-Leader...but there is SO much more to each of these incredible individuals! Complete bios will be coming soon!

Here we go, folks! Streamlined from our 35+ categories to only 5 this year, but with YOU we're making it happen in spite of all the challenges of 2020! Thanx to all of our sponsors, our pro panel, everyone who voted, and everyone who is fighting uphill to keep the music alive!
It's my honor to present to you the nominees for the 7th Lexington Music Awards!

We will also have our panel vote on a Critics Choice Award.
We hope all will be back to normal by next year, so we'll have the 2022 awards back to 30+ categories, live event at the beautiful Lyric Theatre in downtown Lexington, KY (with musical performances and all the other splendor of past events), after-party, and much more! For now, it isn't as good as what you any of you deserve, but this is the best we can manage.

After much careful consideration (and no small degree of internal conflict), I have opted to cut the 2021 Lexi Music Awards to just a handful of categories and either a virtual or very small live event designed solely to present the awards.
My apologies to ALL of you. You deserve much better than I am able to manage in the current environment.
I am, I should note, waiting until the last possible moment to decide if we will hand the awards off in person or virtually or by some other means (such as traditional TV and/or radio broadcast). That decision will be dictated by everything from January-current COVID status & state/local mandates to cold, hard fiscal realities....but I will do the best my meager skills will allow.
The public ballot will only be available for a short time (details coming SOON - so keep your eyes peeled) and we will lean necessarily on a larger pro panel this year.
My heartfelt thanx to everyone for your continued support!
