Hey SoulTrackers!  Thanks for the hundreds and hundreds of nominations we received from you for this year's SoulTracks Readers' Choice Awards.  They were great and helped us to put together a list of 20 nominees in each of our seven categories.  Here's what happens next:  Over the next two weeks a committee of 2,000 artists and music industry professionals will select the top 7 finalists in each of these categories.  Then later this month we'll send personal ballots to all SoulTrackers who have signed up for our newsletter for the final vote (there's still time to sign up at the top left hand box on this page).

In the meantime, congratulations to all of the artists below, who are the nominees for this year's SoulTracks Readers' Choice Awards!
