The following were the rules of the voting: The voting in the 1st round will start Wednesday, June 1st, 2023 at noon. You'll see the ballots below. This is the first round or "nomination round". If there is any act not on the ballot that a fan feels should be, please email your nomination in at info@georgia-country.com. If that act qualifies, they will be added. The period for adding any nomination will last for three weeks, ending on June 24th. After that date, the ballot is locked. Voting for the 1st round will end at noon on Wednesday, July 17th.

Qualifications for artist for the awards: Every act must either be based IN Georgia. They must show this on their music page. They CAN be living in Nashville, but still has to be performing at least 50% of their shows IN Georgia still. They MUST call themselves a COUNTRY act first. They can say they play rock, etc,, but country music must be their main music they perform. For VENUES: Every venue HAS to book country music acts at least 50% of the time. Definition of Band of the Year and Traditional Artist of the Year is that band of the year nominees are any BAND that has a band name. This can not be for The Bobby Smith Band as the singer Bobby Smith would be under the Male category. And and band that is called Bobby Smith and the Dixie Catus Band, still Bobby Smith would get the nomination, not the band. Traditional Artist of the Year is any act, male, female or band that plays mostly traditional or classic country will qualify. Also, The GCA does not have a teen ballot. We've not had one in 10+ years. But will announce the teen artist of the year finalist in October. NEW this year, is Best Original Song. Any song nomination has to follow these rules: 1. Must be written by a Georgia resident. 2. Must be a country song. 3. Song can not be older than three years. 4. You must show proof that you wrote the song as well. 5. Must be of quality recording.
