Our good friend Tracy Broussard, aka "The King of Cankton", is the touring drummer for Blake Shelton and he is up for a pretty cool award.

Modern Drummer Magazine has nominated Tracy for "Country Drummer of the Year" honors. He is one of five drummers on the online ballot.

Here is where you can help -- go vote for Tracy!

You will have to enter your email before you can place your vote and you will also have to place votes for the other categories but I'm pretty sure The King would appreciate the couple of minutes of your time.

Tracy Broussard has been touring with Blake Shelton for nearly a decade. Before that, the Acadiana High and USL graduate toured with the likes of Mila Mason, Shane Minor, Craig Morgan, Rebecca Lynn Howard, Doug Stone and more.

We'll keep everyone updated as to how Tracy does in the competition. Good luck Tracy!
