MUSCLE SHOALS – Local singer, songwriter and touring country music artist, Johnny Collier, has recently earned music award nominations from TWO Music Award Programs. On Sunday, May 1st, the International Singer
Songwriter Association announced their Official 2022 ISSA Awards Finalists with Johnny Collier listed among those making the cut. Collier secured nominations in three categories including Male Songwriter of the Year, Music Video of the Year for his February 15th, 2022 release entitled “A Hole In My Heart” and the coveted Entertainer of the Year nomination.

The Official 2022 ISSA Awards Finalists have spent years preparing their music, getting their websites polished and their fan bases geared up for an entire month of voting to get to this critical point. Johnny Collier says “My wife and manager, Dallas, and I have worked hard for years building my music career and my music catalog. It feels great to see our efforts recognized by such a prestigious organization as the ISSA. And having so many friends, family and fans voting for me and encouraging me through the process of creating, marketing, promoting, and performing… It’s humbling and heartwarming.”

From here, the ISSA judges have the entire summer to get their ballot selections in to determine who will be taking home crystals at the 2022 ISSA Awards. This year, the awards show is LIVE at the Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center, right in the heart of Atlanta, (in the same venue where the Annual BMI Awards are held), on Saturday, August 6th, 2022, with a Pre-party the evening prior to the show at 5pm, and the After Party immediately following the Award show.

The show will feature our 60 plus feet plush red-carpet entrance and banners, complete with photographers, videographers, and several local television celebrities on the red-carpet conducting interviews with our Finalists. The ISSA Awards ceremony is attended by ISSA Members, Nominees, Finalists, Judges, and past winners from around the globe and is open to the public as well. The ISSA says they are thrilled to have their live show in Atlanta once again. Most categories will award three crystals: bronze, silver and gold.
