Radio station KNEK 104.7, in Lafayette, LA, is putting on the Zydeco Music Awards on Thursday, January 20, 2011.  It will be held at the Heymann Performing Arts Center.   Tickets start at $39.  Their web site says that KNEK is “Old School and Today’s R&B,” but I imagine they play some zydeco.  The schedule of shows does not list a zydeco-based show.  Vote on the awards web site.  This is a new event.  Performances by:

* J Paul Jr.
* The Doghill Stompers
* Lil Nate
* Terry and The Zydeco Bad Boys
* Brad Randell
* Leon Chavis
* Jo Jo Reed
* JJ Caillier
* Corey “Lil Pop” Ledet
* Chubby Carrier
* Lil Koray
* Guyland Leday
* Mauric
* Lil Wayne and Same Ol’ Two Step
