The 23rd Annual AWA Awards will be held March 14, 2019 in the Brown Lupton Ballroom in Fort Worth, TX on the campus of Texas Christian University. The event is open to the public.

If you do not see your favorites listed, send them to working_cowboy@hotmail.com. If they have been previously submitted, (only songs and albums, artists can be submitted each year) they are not eligible again. If you see a mistake, let us know. We simply post what is sent to us as we do not have the time or manpower to check out every submission. If you have any questions, go to the email address for more information. Nobody with the AWA is a performer who has something to gain as in other award shows. There is no cost or membership involved in submitting. This award show for the performers and artists, if you want it to succeed, support it. If you want it to go away, then do nothing, we can’t read minds!
