The organization’s second round of balloting begins soon, and more information about the October 18 ICM Faith, Family & Country™ Awards Show can be found at www.ccma.cc.

The success of his critically-acclaimed 2009 CD, LIFE GOES ON, gave Mark a global presence and paved the way for his current EP, MARK WAYNE GLASMIRE (Traceway Records). The disc has already generated two major hits: his current upbeat U.S. single and nine-week No. 1 international smash “I Like You” (MUSIC ROW No. 56, Power Source Magazine Country Top 75 Chart No. 64), and the compelling “Going Home” (Power Source Magazine Inspirational Country Top 100 Chart No. 42).

Glasmire also enjoyed entertaining the crowds during the 2012 CMA Music Fest Week with performances at Nashville Convention and Visitors Bureau Acoustic Stage; BB King’s, Whiskey Bent Saloon and Music City Bar & Grill.
