Fort Worth Weekly – Music Awards Festival
For this year’s Music Awards issue, we decided to do something different. Instead of a couple of sentences about each nominee – all nine million of them – we thought we’d take the temperature of the scene, locally and internationally. How does a local artist define success and how does he or she measure it? Is Fort Worth becoming a destination for major touring acts? How does a local artist break through to that always elusive “next level”? Several nominees were willing to sit down and chat with us, and for their time – and insight – we are eternally grateful.
