Support the independent voice of South Florida and help keep the future of New Times free.

Happy news recently came in regarding the blog you are now reading: County Grind has been named a finalist in the Best Music Blog category at the 2011 AltWeekly Awards.

This is especially exciting because it's our first year of eligibility for really any sort of honor since splitting off from Miami New Times'

Crossfade last year. Many thanks to our gifted writers and

photographers who have helped keep the blog vibrant and fiercely local.

County Grind is up against sibling papers Dallas Observer's DC9 at Night

and Village Voice's Sound of the City as well as North Bay Bohemian's

City Sound Inertia.

Kudos are also in order for New Times Broward-Palm Beach staffer Lisa Rab, who is a finalist in the Public Service category for "Crash Course," about the 411-PAIN network, and for the Daily Pulp in the Blog (Individual) category.

The winners will be revealed July 22 in New Orleans during the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies' 34th Annual Convention.
