Hey Friends and supporters of Ameripolitan Music. I'm knocking on your door again to keep you informed of the great strides we've made toward the Awards show February 18th. Though the tix originally sold out quickly , we have had many donated back from folks who will not be able to physically attend. Therefore more packages are for sale and donations are being accepted again. Our budget ran higher as I am new at this type of thing. The portion of donations we gather now will go for the Staging, the Piping and drapes , AV equipment rental, Security, and catering. If I don't raise a dime more I will pay it out of my own pocket. Yall have done amazing with over $19,000.00 raised. Unfortunately Gofundme took over $2000.00 as their cut. There will be a detailed transparent accounting made public for everyone to see after the awards. If there are folks who can donate the items ( not catering as the hotel will not allow) then please contact me. Thank you all again. There will be SRO tix the day of the event, just so you know. Thank you all so very much. Your vote has been counted and the winners chosen. It's going to be a blast!!!

Well,.....YOU DID IT!!!!! It's SOLD OUT! Please be patient while I gather everyone's gift packs ( Tshirts, stickers and tickets ) and get them to you in the following weeks. Please keep informed

as time gets closer to February 18th, 2014.

I promise full disclosure of where and How your kind donations are spent and we will cut no corners in making this night the biggest musical event in recent history!!

For those who missed their chance, there may be tix available in the fact that some donations were made by folks knowing they could not attend the event but wanted the shirt. They have opted to re-donate the tix or designate it to someone that could go. A young lady from Milwaukee donated a room and two tickets to a hardship case. That's the kind of people that Ameripolitan Music attracts. Real, genuine kind folks.
Again, please be patient as we are working on many aspects of the award show ( voting, sound, lights, flights for celebs and the like) to make it the best for you.

Thank YOU again. This was done with ZERO corporate donations!! YOU the people. The MUSICs
heartbeat.

Stay tuned.......

Would love to perform if you are still looking for some rockabilly/western swing! If not, I'd love to get a ticket! What do I have to donate for a ticket?

I've seen Dale. Chris, Don, and Mike 4 times this year. They, in my country opinion, are a Godsend to country roots and c music. The trash coming out of Nashville makes me ill. I love what they are doing and their music. I've seen them 4 times this year and if I lived in TX, it would be more.
