REX ALLEN JR. Receives Lifetime Achievement Award

Presented At 40th Annual National Old Time Music Festival

at Plymouth County Fairgrounds in LeMars, Iowa

Last night, a member of the Western Music Association Hall of Fame, Rex Allen Jr., was awarded with a standing ovation the Lifetime Achievement award by the National Traditional Country Music Association. The prestigious ceremony took place at the Plymouth County Fairgrounds in LeMars, Iowa and was hosted by founder and lover of all traditional music, Robert Everhart. The annual 7 day festival boasts 650 different performers on 10 different stages. Rex Allen Jr. is also in their Hall of Fame.

Rex shared, “My heart was full as I looked into the crowd and took it all in. I’m proud of my roots and I’m thankful there are still so many that appreciate wonderful classic Country & Western music.”

Rex Allen Jr. will also sit down with Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame DJ and radio host, Keith Bilbrey, for an intimate, in-depth interview on the all-new series, “Reflections,” later this month on Heartland TV, The Family Channel, Angel Two (DISH TV), AMG-TV, Country TV (New Zealand) and DTC Cable. “Reflections” with guest Rex Allen Jr. will air on September 28 (check your local listings for times in your area).

Country music fans will love this new intimate sit-down series as it reveals unknown details about the artist, their music and their videos. For instance, did you know Rex Allen Jr. narrated more than 80 Walt Disney films? Or the fact that he is a legitimate cowboy, riding bulls and bucking broncos for 2 years straight out of high school. These are the kinds of fun facts country music lovers everywhere can discover by tuning into the highly anticipated series “Reflections.”
