2009 Golden Fork Award Winners

Many of you have waited months to find out who won the prestigious and rare Golden Fork Awards from 2009.  Thanks for being so patient.  The interest in our little prize has grown tremendously over the past few years, and I’m very appreciative of that.

People voted from all over the country in a variety of categories including Best Song, Best (Overall) Band, Best New Band, Best New Song, and Best Cover Song.  As many of you know, in January we were blessed to get to meet Iron & Wine at a concert.  We had tabulated enough of the voting to know that he had solidified the win for Best Song for a track he did with Calexico, 16, Maybe Less.  We presented Sam with the first ever Golden Fork trophy.

Last week we presented the 2nd ever Golden Fork trophy to The Rocketboys for 2 wins, Best Band and Best New Song (We Are A Lighthouse). We presented the band with the trophy in front of a sellout crowd in Abilene.

The other awards include Best Appetizer Artist and Best New Band.  The winner of both of those awards is none other than Hannah and the Bloodlines.  Congratulations!

Aside from his Grammy win, we also have a Golden Fork award for John Mayer from his cover of Jimi Hendrix’ Bold As Love.

Thanks to everyone who participated in our voting for the award.  We look forward to another great selection of artists for this year’s Golden Fork.
