Herrick Takes Home “Entertainer of the Year” at Largest Independent Artist Award Show

For immediate release: Contact Brandy Reed (615) 830-3508 Nashville, TN-(October 19, 2021)-Nashville-based Country/Americana band Herrick boasts an impressive list of industry awards and nominations including four IMA Awards, a national Bronze Telly Award, three JMA awards, a pair of IAMA International Acoustic Awards, and three Americana music nominations to name a few. Herrick continues to be a favorite among independent music influencers with their rich melodic persuasion and signature harmonies. On Friday, September 17th, the band took home their fourth JMA Award for “Entertainer of the Year.” This is their second consecutive time to win the category. Other JMA Awards in previous years

include “Female Vocalist of the Year” and “Bluegrass/Folk/Americana Group of the Year.” Kerry and Donna Herrick are perpetually grateful to have been honored by the JMA’s on so many occasions. We are very honored to win JMA Entertainers of the year. As an independent artist, it is a great thing to be recognized for all our hard work. We would like to dedicate this award to our Co-producer/ Co-writer, and more importantly, friend...Snake Reynolds. His passing last week devastated all of us. He believed in us and the music. He would be proud.-Donna Herrick

Herrick is riding high on the acclaim of their new studio album “Sunderland Road” that was released to media applause on September 10th. The album is built like a fortress around Donna Herrick’s formidable vocal power and come deep from the soul. The album is co-produced by Herrick and the late GRAMMY Award engineer Snake Reynolds who has worked on 100 plus multi-platinum albums. Themes about easy breathin’ in “Freedom,” the preservation of well-traveled life roads in “Old Bridges,” and the priceless commodity of humble beginnings in the title-track “Sunderland Road” all unmask the high spirited jubilation of this collection that American Songwriter Magazine describes as “a nostalgic journey.” About the JMA Since its inaugural celebration in 2015, the Josie Music Awards was, is, and remains the largest independent artist award show globally. The Josie Music Awards is a brand of The Josie Network, LLC owned by the highly-respected partnership team of Josie Passantino and Tinamarie Passantino. This team set out and successfully created an award show where winners are selected on their talent, skill, material, professionalism. The Josie Music Awards was created solely to celebrate those in the independent music industry that work so hard every day and deserve to have a night of their own. “’Sunderland Road’ leads to realms of wistful reflection. It paves the way for a moving set of songs, which, in itself, leads to a most satisfying sojourn overall. The duo’s latest album offers ample evidence as to why their music has been so well received.” -American Songwriter Magazine "Donna could probably sing the phone book and make it interesting, but that's not the only thing that makes their music unique. Donna has the uncanny ability to breathe emotion into a song and make the listener feel something. The harmonies on ‘Cottonfields’ are wonderful. In addition, the instrumentation and arrangement of the songs is superb.” -No Depression Magazine An album of high drama and sweeping 90’s style torch songs. It’s clear, from the start, that Snake Reynolds has captured lightning in the bottle with this talented duo.-Lyric Magazine For review copies, interview or more information contact RPR Media.
