AirPlay Direct is pleased to present for your Grammy consideration two of our APD Artist Endorsees Dana Cooper and his latest CD, “Incendiary Kid” on Travianna Records for Best Folk Album of the Year, and independent artist Carrie Cunningham’s two entries, "One Less Regret" for Country Song and the EP "Let's Dance" for Country Album.

“We could not be more proud of our APD Artist Endorsees, and these two beautiful records," says Lynda Weingartz, CEO - AirPlay Direct. "We hope you will enjoy them as much and consider supporting them with your vote.”

Out of the heartland of America, stomping grounds of Truman and Twain, “powerhouse” troubadour Dana Cooper dedicated himself to a life of music over 40 years ago. To date, Dana has released 28 albums. This song poet engages and inspires audiences around the world with his quick wit, insightful stories and commanding presence. He is the recipient of the 2014 Heritage Musician award from Pilgrim Center for the Arts in Kansas City,

MO. He was also named the 2015 Spirit of Folk award winner by Folk Alliance International.

"'Incendiary Kid' is my third recording project with co-producer Thomm Jutz and it's my favorite so far. From the beginning Thomm and I planned on using only acoustic instruments in the production," said Dana Cooper, Travianna Records Recording Artist. "I love the warmth and intimacy that all the musicians and singers brought to this recording. In the true sense this is a return to my roots. The themes range from the loneliness of childhood, friendship betrayed, agoraphobia, the ongoing experiment that is America, and our shared mortality."

Carrie Cunningham is an International Chart topping Performing Songwriter who loves to entertain! The music industry is calling her an authentic, sultry, slightly twisted and totally believable voice on the New Country/Americana scene. Carrie has the sass of Miranda Lambert and a powerhouse voice like Martina McBride; all the while, the sweetness that seethes from the rich tones of Pam Tillis; which

engages and captivates the audience within minutes.

"Everything about this EP, just makes me feel good. This EP is about love. Love for yourself, family, the holy spirit," says Carrie Cunningham, Independent Artist. The song “One Less Regret” is a fan favorite, hopefully you will agree. I am thrilled that the Lets Dance EP made the the Top 10 Albums for 2017 by Women of Country Music .org.“
