The Blues Music Awards brings together Blues performers, industry representatives, and fans from all over the world to celebrate the best in Blues recordings and performances from the previous year.

The BMAs are generally recognized as the highest honor given to blues musicians and are awarded by vote of Blues Foundation members.

The Renasant Convention Center was packed with blues musicians, fans, and music-world luminaries on May 9th, anxious to see who would be the winners at the 45th Annual Blues Music Awards. Besides awarding honors in 25 categories, the BMAs, as is its tradition, featured performances from many nominees, with the gala ending in a jubilant all-star jam.

Congratulations to Sue Foley, who won in the Traditional Female Artist (Koko Taylor Award) category and Kenny ‘Blues Boss’ Way, who won in the Pinetop Perkins Piano Player category. Both these artists are on the Stony Plain Records label and continue to enthrall audiences with their exceptional talent and dedication to the blues genre. Their wins at the Blues Music Awards further solidify their status as esteemed figures within the blues community and serve as a testament to their ongoing contributions to the rich tapestry of blues music.
