Cathy-Anne McClintock Honored With Hollywood Music In Media Award Nomination


37 Records Country/Folk/Americana artist Cathy-Anne McClintock’s splash on the music scene just got bigger with word of her Hollywood Music In Media Award nomination for Best Folk/Acoustic Song for her hit single “I Wanna Live Like That”.

“I’m so happy to be nominated and honored to be representing acoustic music, and especially honored to be nominated for getting to sing ‘I Wanna I Live Like That’ with my folk/bluegrass hero Tim O’ Brien,” says McClintock.

The Hollywood Music In Media Awards will take place on November 18 at The Highlands located in the Kodak Theater Complex/Hollywood & Highland Center. The HMMAs recognizes and honors the music of visual mediums, the talented individuals responsible for it, and the music of both mainstream and independent artists from around the globe.

The nomination adds to an incredible year of nominations for McClintock, including Bluegrass Inspirational Artist for “I Wanna Live Like That” at the Inspirational Country Music Awards, Americana Song Of The Year for the same song and for Americana Artist Of The Year at the Los Angeles Music Awards.

Music Connection magazine named McClintock one of the Hot 100 Unsigned Bands & Artists of the year (December 2009 issue).

Since moving to Southern California to focus on her solo career several years ago, she established herself as a formidable performer with gigs at hotspots like The Canyon Club, The Brixton, Hermosa Beach Series, Genghis Cohen, The Mint, Kulaks, Hallenbecks and various special events, including Laguna Beach’s Pageant of the Masters, Sunset Serenade Series, Far West Folk Alliance, Canadian Music Week and the popular folk series The Living Tradition.  At a particularly memorable gig at the House of Blues on Sunset, she opened for Canadian Celtic rockers Great Big Sea for an audience comprised of fellow Canadians; one of the highlights was Russell Crowe sitting in and singing a few Johnny Cash tunes with the band. 

McClintock’s emergence as a solo artist is simply the latest triumph in a career that would make anyone want to “live like that.” Shortly after the Vancouver born and raised performer and her older sister Trisha Gagnon formed their bluegrass band Tumbleweed in the 90s, they played their first show on a slate in British Columbia with superstars Dolly Parton and Dwight Yoakam at Music 91, a government sponsored road show designed to boost tourism.
