Nashville Mayor Karl Dean presents White with the first annual Music City Ambassador award for bringing the most international attention to the city’s music industry over the past year. White accepts the award at the Third Man Records building in downtown Nashville. Dean says:
His music spans over several different genres. He made a decision to come to Nashville after he achieved a great deal of success. He came here with all of his creative energy, plus this entrepreneurial spirit, and he is invested in the community.
White thanked the city and the mayor, calling the award “an incredible honor.”
