ABOUT THE 

SOUTHERN ENTERTAINMENT AWARDS

The Southern Entertainment Awards (abbreviated as SEAs) has been a staple in southern culture, music and entertainment.  Entering its 18th year, the SEAs strive to be a well-known and respected venue and channel that gives independent artists all around the globe a platform to be heard on evolving from its original desire to be an outlet used to acknowledge the accomplishments and influence of the Djs primarliy in the South.. Based in Nashville, Tennessee, the annual awards show has grown substantially from its remarkable beginnings at Gibson’s Showcase in 2004. 

Since its conception, the three day event has been held Nashville, Tunica and Memphis; despite its location, there has been a consistent increase in attendance numbers, expansions of categories and nominations, local, national and international media coverage, as well as recognition of reputable and successful independent and mainstream professionals including, but not limited to, Yo Gotti, Nicki Minaj, B.o.B., Conya Doss, Algebra Blessett, Rudy Currence and Big K.R.I.T.. With accompanying panels, performances and a fashion show, the SEAs, once viewed as a ‘regional event, are now esteemed as a recognizable brand throughout the world.

 

MISSION STATEMENT

The Southern Entertainment Awards strives to be a platform that showcases independent talent, offers industry support and bridges the many gaps between music, arts and brands.  Through tailored efforts, initiatives and consistent outreach, the SEAs challenges ourselves and our organization to provide a solid foundation for indie artist.
