Tributes...


The Charlie Lamb Award for Excellence in Country Music Journalism was presented to BOB HOWE by Brenda Lee on May 28 at the 21st Annual International Country Music Conference...
Bob Howe and Brenda Lee...the inscription reads...The Charlie Lamb Award for Excellence in Country Music Journalism was established to honor the working journalists who have devoted their lives to this genre of music. In recognition of his vast knowledge of country music, informative reporting and literary contributions, the 2004 'Lifetime Achievement Category' award goes to BOB HOWE. During his long and distinguished career, Howe columns and articles have appeared in a variety of publications internationally, as well as in his native country, Australia. However, his most significant contribution may be in the realm of internet journalism. His website 'Cowboys In Cyberspace' has long been a favorite destination for country music fans from around the world. We take pride in acknowledging Bob Howe's body of work as a contribution to the heritage and history of country music. Signed: Charlie Lamb, May 28, 2004 - Gary and Peggy Walker, Award Founders. Presented under the auspices of Belmont University, Nashville.
