Chuck Berry Nominated For Libera Award


Chuck Berry is among the nominees for the 2018 Libera Award for both album of the year and best blues album. The 2018 Libera Award includes a variety of artists from all genres.

Other album of the year nominees include Big Thief, Cigarettes After Sex, Father John Misty, and Slowdive.

"Since Edison invented the phonograph, independent music labels have defined American musical culture and disseminated it to the world," said A2IM CEO Richard James Burgess in a statement. "The Libera Awards is the first platform to celebrate and honor the entrepreneurial spirit, creative independence, and cultural diversity that undergirds these genre-defining American artists and businesspeople."

The independent music-celebrating award show will be hosted by stand-up comedian Kate Wolff and take place June 21 at the PlayStation Theater in New York City.
