“It is, of course, a great surprise to be honored this year by the Carolina Music Awards,” states Custer, “My deep thanks goes out to everyone at the Carolina Music Awards for empowering the North and South Carolina arts community by distinguishing their efforts. Thanks to Carolina Music Awards supporters Roberta Flack, Randy Travis and Darius Rucker for bolstering this ascending tradition.”
The selection process for the Achievement Award is pretty stringent, but the contributions Custer has made to the music industry undeniably fit the criteria. From a humble, hardworking beginning as a studio session guitarist, Custer took his passion for music and became a renowned producer. Choosing such a well-rounded artist for the Carolina Music Awards Achievement Award was an easy decision.
"We are extremely excited to honor the man who some have called the ‘Indestructible Godfather of the NC Music Industry’ and look forward to introducing him to our multi-genre audience,” says Omar McCallop, founder of Award Show Nation, the producer of the Carolina Music Awards, “John has been leading and supporting the Carolina music industry for over 2 decades, and it’s long overdue that we honor all he has done."
Tickets for the Carolina Music Awards, scheduled for August 2, 2014, are available for purchase at the Duke Energy Theatre and on TicketMaster.
