Hope-area band receives international award

A Bartholomew County band received an international award at a recent event in Georgia.

According to HSJ Online, the Hope news website, the Night Owl Country Band was awarded Album of the Year by the International Singer-Songwriters Association for their latest release “Off the Tracks” at the annual awards show earlier this month in Atlanta.

The band was one of more than 20,000 artists who were submitted for consideration by fans. After being nominated, fans can vote once a day over a month for their favorite band. From those nominees, the association chooses the winners.

According to HSJ Online, in addition to album of the year, the band had been nominated for four other awards, including song of the year for their single “Country to the Bone.” The band played that song on the stage at the awards show.
