“I am truly blessed, humbled and honored by these nominations,” said Stover. “The fact that these awards are voted on by your peers is so appreciated. Winning last year was unbelievable, and I’m simply blown away to be nominated for Manager of the Year again. Congrats to all the nominees, in all the categories, including Matt and Alyssa, who had a dynamite release with us this year, and also to my buddy, Lee Cherry, who is nominated in the Promoter category. I’ve had the honor of working with him closely this year, and he deserves the recognition. Good luck to everyone, and we’ll see you in Nashville!”
