    This was such a great awards show for music videos and for musicians and artists that put time and care into telling a visual story, I can't think of a better event. The festival was well organized and well attended. I will certainly be submitting music videos in the future.

    Thanks again LA Music Video Awards for the honor of best song in a video and best country music video! I'm truly grateful
