Central Arkansas Music Awards

In partnership with Arkansas Sounds, a project of the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies, the Arkansas Times presents the first Central Arkansas Music Awards, a ceremony of recognition at the Central Arkansas Library System’s Ron Robinson Theater.

Performers, radio hosts, venue owners and composers

in 22 categories are up for awards celebrating work created between Oct. 1, 2016, and Oct. 1, 2017, and for ongoing creative commitment to the Central Arkansas music scene. Join the Arkansas Times and your host Kevin Kerby as the winners are revealed, and enjoy live performances from Dazz & Brie, Brethren (Zakk & Big Papa Binns and special guests), The Legendary Pacers, Yuni Wa, Adam Faucett, Princeaus and The Brian Nahlen Band.
