Scotty wins ICM Mainstream Country Male Artist

What are the Inspirational Country Music Awards?:
In the fall of every year, The Inspirational Country Music Awards celebrate the year-long accomplishments of the industries brightest new talent, biggest stars and living legends. The Awards also serve as a yearly testament to the accumulative work and effort of The Inspirational Country Music Association.

Josh Turner, Charlie Daniels, Wynonna, Collin Raye, Ricky Skaggs, Andy Griggs, Lonestar, Lee Greenwood, Point of Grace, Diamond Rio, Emerson Drive, Love & Theft, Jeff Bates and Tracy Lawrence are just some of the artists that have graced the stage over the years.

Inspirational Country Music enjoys one of the most loyal fan-bases in the music industry. That quality makes it extremely accepting and welcoming to new artists. While not as large an industry as Mainstream Country, the unique Inspirational Country fan loyalty allows artists the opportunity to grow careers as well as ministries.

How does voting work?:
The annual Inspirational Country Music Awards are voted on by the professional and media members of the Inspirational Country Music Association. This includes: musicians, songwriters, artists, ministers, managers, publicity agents and firms, producers, etc. (anyone who derives their living from music and is actively involved in music or ministry). Radio and other media professionals are also part of the voting process. Our radio members are not paid subscribers. The membership is a benefit for their support and hard work in the genre of Christian and Inspirational Country Music. These professional and media members are eligible to vote in all rounds and all categories of the awards process.
The second level is our Fan Membership. These include fans from around the globe that appreciate Christian and Inspirational Country Music. They are not eligible to vote in the first round. The first round is ONLY for professional and media members. This process ensures that only industry professionals define the most eligible nominees. Fans are eligible to vote in rounds two and three of the process. Fans are only allowed to vote in FIVE categories of their choice. They may choose any five categories to vote in. Once the ballot reaches the accounting firm, any fan ballot with more than five votes is voided.
