Lexi Music Awards Presentation

Given our current (covid) state, as we have said already, we will NOT be having a public presentation or an after-party. So what will the course of events be?

1) We will announce ALL award recipients (not just Lifetime Achievement recipients) in advance so that they can make plans to attend the small private gathering, which we hope will be taped in some form for broadcast on one of WLEX's platforms.

2) We will make arrangements with recipients to meet to accept their awards and give a short speech for the taping/broadcast.

3) Once wrapped, we will announce the broadcast date so that anyone interested will be able to watch!

Our thanx to our media partners, our sponsors, and every single musician & music fan in the area for your continuing support!

With luck, COVID will be behind us soon and we can have a live celebration sometime this spring or summer to honor the nominees, recipients, and their family, friends, & fans.

Thank you!
