Nashville, TN (May, 21, 2014) – RPME Records powerhouse vocalist and Potomac, MD native Maggie Rose has been honored by The National Capital Chesapeake Bay Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS), with a local 2013 Emmy Award nomination for the 56th Emmy Awards. The singer co-wrote and performed “Get Ya Game On” for Comcast SportsNet as the theme of their coverage of the National Football League’s Washington Redskins throughout the 2013 season. Winners will be announced at the 56th Emmy Awards Gala on June 14th.
"I am beyond excited to earn an Emmy nomination in my home state of Maryland,” says Maggie. “I am looking forward to continuing my collaboration with everyone at Comcast SportsNet in this coming year."
Due to the success of the “Get Ya Game On” promo, Maggie is gearing up to repackage the promo for Comcast SportsNet for the 2014 NFL season.
"Comcast SportsNet is very fortunate to have had the opportunity to collaborate on this project with one of the hot, young stars of Nashville,” shares Comcast SportsNet Managing Editor, Joe Yasharoff. “Maggie and Jim Wes wrote a great, catchy tune that our viewers love. We are thrilled about the Emmy nomination."
Her local 2013 Emmy Award nomination follows the release of Maggie’s latest hit, “Looking Back Now,” which is the third single from her acclaimed debut album, CUT TO IMPRESS. The project landed on Roughstock.com and CountryMusicRocks’ Best Albums of 2013, and was listed as one of only four country albums to make Amazon.com’s Best Music of 2013. Produced by Blake Chancey, James Stroud and Stephony Smith, the album features the breakthrough Top 30 hits “I Ain’t Your Mama” and “Better,” which stayed on the country music charts for over 30 weeks. The project highlights Maggie’s songwriting prowess on nearly half of the tracks. The singer recently opened for Gary Allan and Sheryl Crow on the FREE & EASY Tour.
