Doug MacLeod's Fresh! From Reference Recordings release Brand New Eyes has been nominated for a "Muddy" Award from the Cascade Blues Association as the best National Blues Recording of 2011.
About the Muddy Awards:
Named in honor of one of blues music's most influential forces —McKinley Morganfield, or Muddy Waters— the Cascade Blues Association's annual Muddy Awards Celebration honors local, regional, national and international stars of the blues.
Every September, the Cascade Blues Association solicits award nominations from the CBA Membership. The top three nominations in each category are used to form the official Muddys Ballots. In October, the ballots are mailed out to the CBA Membership. The votes are tabulated in time for the November General Meeting, where the winners are announced. Over 1,000 CBA members participate in the Muddy Awards process, making it one of the most prestigious blues awards in the world.
Nominees for National Recording Muddy Award:
- Buddy Guy - Living Proof
- Doug MacLeod - Brand New Eyes
