The 2ndAnnual Texas Regional Music Awards will be held Sunday at 4 p.m. at the Arlington Music Hall in Arlington, Texas.  The show has grown from humble beginnings of small acoustic performances last year to full blown production numbers from the top Texas/Red Dirt artists using their full bands for 2012.  The show will be hosted by Texas Country Superstar, Deryl Dodd and Ali Dee, star of CMT's popular reality show, "Texas Women." 
 
A very special opening number showcasing the songs up for song of the year will be done by Steve Helms, Matt Hillyer of 1100 Springs and Bo Phillips.  The Casey Donahew Band, who has five nominations, will show the crowd why they sell out shows across the country with their full band performing, “Double Wide Dream.”  Emcee's, Deryl Dodd and Ali Dee, will take the stage to show us what it’s like to see them live out on the Texas road.  Randy Rogers and Brady Black are preparing a special acoustic performance of a song from their album of the year nominated, BURNING THE DAY.  Blacktop Gypsy, T. J. Broscoff, Kylie Rae Harris, and Zane Williams, who all found a new way to get their music out to the public by being picked to be on the nationally syndicated show, Troubadour TX, will be performing.
 
The presenter line-up is pretty impressive which includes:  Casey James, Wade Bowen, Larry Joe Taylor, Phil Hamilton, John David Kent, Stephanie Urbana Jones, Sonny Burgess, Matt Kimbrow, Jerrod Medulla, Rachel Stacy, Bri Bagwell, Chance Cody, Jerrod Medulla, Nick Verzoza, Jolie Holiday and Charla Corn.
 
There are a few tickets remaining for the public.  They can be purchased on-line at www.ArlingtonMusicHall.com.  For more information on the Texas Regional Music Association please go to:  www.trrma.net
