The Mascot Label Group are thrilled to be nominated for 5 awards in the annual Planet Rock ‘The Rocks’ awards 2017.

Southern rockers Black Stone Cherry pick up two nominations for Best International Band and Best International Album for the top 5 ‘Kentucky’ where they are also up against Canadian juggernauts’ Monster Truck for the  riff-tastic ‘Sittin’ Heavy’ ahead of their upcoming UK March headline tour.

Nashville trio SIMO toured non-stop in 2016, playing over 200 shows and released the acclaimed album ‘Let Love Show The Way’ which helped them pick up the nomination for Best New Band whilst the great modern blues Icon Joe Bonamassa is up for Best Worldwide Solo Artist for his phenomenal output including the #3 album ‘Blues of Desperation’ as well as the incredible ‘Live At The Greek Theatre’ in the last year and he will be touring the UK in April including 2 shows at the legendary Royal Albert Hall, London.

2017’s Rocks are our fourth annual celebration of all of the greatest rock albums, singles, and bands from the UK and beyond. This year sees the re-introduction of the British Band category and the addition of the special ‘Brick Wall Award’, as well as the return of British Album, British Single, International Band, International Album and Worldwide Solo Artist. Wyatt Wendels asks Planet Rock listeners to cast their votes in a number of categories and the winners will be announced on his show on Friday 3rd March 2017 from 10am.
