In 2007 Highlander Radio added a new category to the Music Awards Program. Album of the Year was created to acknowledge and recognize a musician or band for the performance and creativity in producing a full length album. In selecting this Award, Highlander Radio looked closely at a number of attributes. While total ratings and radio statistics where consulted in narrowing the field of selections, more emphasis was placed on the musical talent, theme, originality, creativity and whether that artist or group embodies the “Highlander Radio” sound.
