More good news for Lisa is that she will receive the Artist of the Year 2011 award from the prestigious Northern Nashville Country Music Club, based in Thurso, Northern Scotland. This award is voted by the NNCMC members and will be presented by them to Lisa during her next appearance on Friday 28th September.
