The Tennessee Music Awards program is aimed at cultivating the music of The Volunteer State and is principally sponsored by the University of Memphis Lambuth's Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music. The highly anticipated annual red carpet event  covers the current music scene,  honoring legends, producers, independent artists, and more. View past recipients, learn about eligibility, review sponsorship offerings, or contact us today.

Since 2017


The Tennessee Music Awards program began in Jackson, Tennessee. The endeavor was created by Nathan Hunnicutt and gained support initially through Dr. Jeremy Tubbs and the Jackson Music Society. The annual event covers all major music genres and production categories within the State of Tennessee. Pictured: Nathan Hunnicutt (left), and Dr. Jeremy Tubbs (right).

Coming Together


The Tennessee Music Awards event is made possible by a host of volunteers who care about the rich musical heritage of this great state. Contact us for more information about volunteering, or sponsorship.



We will be launching our Resource section in 2019. We can't wait to share this with you!
