The Trop Rock Music Awards was established in 2007 to formally recognize the hard work, promotion and preservation of Trop Rock Music by the artists, songwriters, radio, events and live music venues through whom the genre continues to evolve. Over the years, the program has grown to include 18 categories.
You must be a member of the Trop Rock Music Association to vote in the Trop Rock Music Awards.
The TRMA Artist Review Board will determine if an artist nominee meets the artist membership requirements. Any Artist Nominee who is approved by the board and is not a member of the Trop Rock Music Association must become a TRMA member in order to go to on to the Final Ballot. They will be notified upon board approval, and will then have 15 days to join the TRMA. If the nominated artist declines to join the association, the nomination will go to the next highest qualifying vote-getter.
The 2013 Trop Rock Music Awards would not be possible without our Sponsors!
