The award was presented to the Oklahoma City City musician on Sept. 5 at the iconic Sunset Gower Studios in Hollywood, California.

The Indie Music Channel celebrates independent musicians from all genres across the globe, supporting excellence in recording and performing arts and providing opportunities to showcase and celebrate the unsigned artists and the immense pool of talented musicians on the international music scene. The project was created by Emmy Award-winning media entrepreneur and television host Christopher Ewing.

Dillingham’s original song titled “Four in the Morning” won for Best Contemporary Christian Song at the 10th annual event. It was also number one for three consecutive weeks on The Radio Cafe’s Top 10 Countdown live from Hollywood.

“I receive over 20,000 song submissions a year from all around the world, so just making it onto my show is hard enough. Reaching number one is even harder,” Ewing said in a news release. “Way to go! Keep making great music! You are, truly, one of the best indie artists in the world!”

Another one of Dillingham’s songs, “Homa”, was also nominated for Best Americana Song, which will be the title track off of his upcoming album to be released in 2022.

The Indie Music Channel Awards are judged by a panel of experts from across the industry–production and  engineering, artist management, mainstream radio and television, and Grammy-winning artists and producers.

“What an honor!” Dillingham said in a news release. “I hope this song speaks to everyone the way it speaks to me.”

Dillingham, an Oklahoma native, has performed before audiences in 41 countries and he and his band, Horseshoe Road, are scheduled for a performance tour in Dubai in spring 2022. He picked up the violin when he was 9, and eight years later, he gave two featured performances at the Grand Ole Opry.

Presented by the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, Dillingham was awarded with the prestigious honor of Oklahoma Ambassador of Goodwill in 2020. Dillingham is also the winner of the 2020 and 2011 International Acoustic Music Awards.
