The Ranch rocks: 106.9 sweeps TRRMA awards as Nash, Carey Dean 3-peat

(Continued)

Corsicana —

One fan even brought a box of 106.9 The Ranch coozies and tossed them into the crowd after the wins, Jordan said. The fan did that on his own, Jordan said.

There were more than 43,000 online votes cast in the final round, Carey Dean said, tripling last year’s totals.

“Having that many fans vote for you makes it fun,” Nash said.

Cody Johnson claimed entertainer and male vocalist of the year. He is playing in Corsicana the Friday of the Derrick Days weekend at The Remington, Carey Dean said. Aaron Watson’s homage to Lane Frost, a rodeo icon who died at the young age of 25 in 1989 during a rodeo in Wyoming, also won big. “July in Cheyenne” won song, single and video of the year.

Frost’s parents accepted the award, Jordan said, because Watson was at a music festival in Abilene.

“That got a standing ovation,” Jordan said. “There was not a dry eye in the house.”

Nash and Carey Dean presented “Album of the Year,” which went to the Randy Rogers Band for “Trouble.”
