News: Blues Blast Music Awards winners
Posted on: Monday, Sep 28, 2015
The 2015 Blues Blast Music Award winners are listed below.
The winners were announced at the Blues Blast Music Award ceremonies on Friday evening September 25th at the Fluid Event Center in Champaign, IL.
Over the weekend we received information suggesting that our voting website had been hacked. We commend Anthony Gomes for coming forward with this information.
An investigation discovered fraudulent votes had been cast in the Contemporary Blues Album, Rock Blues Album and the Male Blues Artist categories.
These were the only categories involved in this hacking. No categories other than the Contemporary Blues Album, Rock Blues Album and the Male Blues Artist categories were affected.
Sony Music, MasterCard, Visa, Target and the IRS have all recently been hacked and this is a serious issue for every company. We have instituted security measures insuring the Blues Blast Music Awards can not be subject to tampering.
We have deleted the invalid votes and the results are shown below. Congratulations to the winners. For a complete list of all the nominees and winners CLICK HERE.
Thanks go out to the winners, the nominees, our sponsors and Blues fans all over the world for making this year’s Blues Blast Music Awards a huge success.
