Congratulations are in order for local members of the New Hampshire Country Music Association who recently took home honors at the Red Carpet Awards in Pigeon Forge Tennessee.

Each year, the NHCMA holds its annual talent search at various locations throughout the area. There are multiple categories and age groups you can enter. They held their annual awards show last fall which I had the pleasure to host.

The following winners from the show went on to win in the national competition and deserve kudos for their accomplishments.
