Nashville, TN, July 13, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Nashville’s Artist to the Stars, Corey Frizzell, received a top ten award nomination from the prestigious Artists Music Guild in the Freelance Visual Artist category. The award winners will be announced during the Artist Music Guild’s 2012 AMG Heritage Awards ceremony November 10th at the Heritage USA, formally known as PTL, in Fort Mill, SC. This year’s show will be a star studded event, taped and aired on PBS.
The Artists Music Guild was established to help the understanding, appreciation and advancement of the contributions of the arts to American culture — from the artistic genius’ of the current day; to the technical legends of the past; and to those still unimagined artistic breakthroughs of future generations. The Guild accomplishes this mission through programs and activities that engage the artistic and cultural community as well as the general public.
The Guild works in partnership year-round with artists to bring national attention to important issues such as the value and impact of the arts and education.
The Frizzell family, most famous for its prominence on the Country Music Charts, is witnessing the artistic successes of the second generation. Although he has siblings following in the Frizzell music footsteps, who have accepted the challenge of emerging from the giant shadow first cast by the family music patriarch, Lefty Frizzell, Corey chose a different path, a path to create his own shadow.
Corey falls somewhere in the middle of the six children spanning four decades of Allen Frizzell, former Nashville recording artist and younger brother of the Legendary Lefty Frizzell and Country Star, David Frizzell.
Frizzell has been a Golden Gloves Boxing Champion, acted in music videos and cast for two roles in the original Stephen King movie, “Children of The Corn.” If that's not interesting enough, he's now a writer, producer, manager, boxing coach and visual artist in high demand, creating custom portraits of the stars for the stars.
In 2006, with royal country music blood running through his veins, Frizzell came full circle being named Nashville’s Artist to the Stars for his artistic collaboration with some of Country, Bluegrass, Gospel, Americana and Roots music's biggest names, including George Jones, Randy Travis, Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson, Mark Newton, Carl Jackson, Mark Chesnutt, Gene Watson and Jerrod Niemann to name a few.
