That's right, sports fans, it's once again time for the big ol' love letter to St. Louis music known as the RFT Music Awards and Showcase. The nominating committee has made its arguments and to show for it we have five of the best bands and artists in 25 categories.

Many of these fine musicians will appear at the RFT Music Showcase, to be held this year on June 2. Important: If you are one of this year's nominees, please email us at and include the best email and phone number at which to reach you this week in order to be sure you are included in our coverage.

For those of you who are still reading and haven't skipped ahead to the nominees already (all three of you), a note or two on this year's ballot: We are instituting an RFT Music Hall of Fame. Some form of this has existed in the past, but this will be ongoing -- each year we will select a handful of highly deserving mainstays and breakouts to enshrine. This year's inductees are listed after the rest of the categories, which are in alphabetical order. Also, if your band/your friend's band isn't listed, rest assured it was right on the bubble.

Congratulations to all 125 nominees.
