Nominees for the 2021 New Music Awards were announced this week in Nashville, Tennessee. The extraordinary talent of singer songwriter John Michael Ferrari was nominated for three New Music Awards; AC (Adult Contemporary) New Artist of the Year, AC Breakthrough Artist of the Year, and Crossover Artist/Band of the Year.
After decades entertaining audiences across the country, entertainer singer songwriter John Michael Ferrari is an overnight success during Covid. Yes, all of his performance gigs were cancelled or postponed. However, he
and his music producer of 30+ years, Pepper Jay, used the “stay at home” time and the assistance of Loggins Promotion to successfully push Ferrari’s songs to radio play, resulting in dozens of spots on several radio charts
Right before Covid hit the U.S., Ferrari and Jay made two trips to Larry Beaird’s Studios in Nashville to record Ferrari’s second album, “Be the Smile on Your Face” (Cappy Records). The Dwarf Nigerian Goat on the front
of this country crossover love album is Ozzie, who resides with Ferrari and Jay at their ranch in Pahrump, Nevada.
Ferrari received three awards in 2020, Best Peace Song of the Year at the Hollywood Tribute to the Oscars for his tune, “Like a Rock and Roll Band,” Triple A Album of the Year for his album “Be the Smile on Your Face”
by the Producers Choice Honors, and Rising Star by the eZWay Virtual Golden Gala. Ferrari is honored to be nominated for the New Music Awards.
