We live in an age of dying art. The media is crawling with twerkers and depressing "hick hop" albums, that is when we're not mourning the losses of music icons like BB King, Percy Sledge, Johnny Winter,etc. So, here at AMS Entertainment, we created the AMS Revival Award for artists who work to bring new life to dying music. George Thorogood has been touring for over forty years, keeping the blues music of John Lee Hooker, Bo Diddley, and others alive. Brian Setzer has been touring for almost as long, and he works every day to keep rockabilly music alive. We selected these two artists to receive this award because of their undying love and passion for the music they play. Please check out their music, and show them some love. The world needs more artists like these two music icons!
