A Cherokee Nation man did not go home empty-handed after being nominated multiple times in a statewide music contest.
Jay Red Eagle won both Native American Artist of the Year and Flute Player of the Year. The Stillwater-based Payne County Line Promotions sponsored the contest. Officials say the awards are an annual event. Artists must receive a number of votes to even be nominated, with winners determined through online polling.
Red Eagle's music has been described as a “traditional, yet contemporary blend of flute, drums, percussion and vocals, pulling your senses into the world of the American Indian, their history of living in a balanced harmony with the earth, nature and the spiritual world.”
Favorite Artists: Carlos Nakai, William Guiterrez, Redbone, Leon Russell, Bill Miller, Robert "Tree" Cody, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Northern Cree.
