Local Music Tap: Mpls. Country Musician Named 'Most Promising Young Artist'

Minneapolis country musician Devon Worley says she's humbled after being named the "Most Promising Young Artist" by the Independent Country Music Association.

The award was announced last Saturday during an episode of the nationally syndicated Country Dreams radio show broadcast on Renegade Radio in Nashville, Tenn.

The Devon Worley Band – along with director Nick Nichols -- also won Video of the Year for "Silver Creek."

Worley heard of the win while getting ready to perform at an event for fallen Mendota Heights Officer Scott Patrick.

"I was thrilled to be nominated!" she said. "But to win is amazing and exciting. I am so humbled."

Meanwhile, the ever-touring band continues to on its path toward mainstream recognition, opening for big acts like Gloriana, Hunter Hayes, Kentucky Headhunters, Randy Hauser and more.

On Saturday, the band will join Sister Hazel and Chris Hawkey at Mill City Nights in an event that will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Tickets are available here.
