The411 with Sherlene Shanklin: In many cases local artists have a difficult time getting recognition. The Louisville Music Awards will acknowledge artist from the area from the trailblazers who've paved the way to inspiring artists looking for that one big opportunity to give them notoriety. The awards program gives artists not only recognition but a chance to showcase their craft. LMA organizers actually do an "academy style" nomination and voting system to tally the votes. You have an opportunity to vote for your favorite artist(s) by going to www.louisvillemusicawards.com to get information about the event and the nominated artists and groups. Tickets for the ceremony are only $10.00. You can purchase them on their site, or by going to the Headliner box office. The Second Annual Louisville Music Awards will take place on Sunday, September 28th at Headliners Music Hall. If you have a story idea send it to The411@whas11.com.
