The Knocdown-SCM Awards

In early 2008, Knocdown Entertainment created the Knocdown Indie Awards. The awards were created as an outlet to give the growing talent in West Tennessee some exposure. However, after just one year, the feedback from areas outside of West Tennessee was so overwhelming that Knocdown Entertainment added categories for those outside of West Tennessee. In 2009, Knocdown Entertainment C.E.O.s, FJ and B. Mercer partnered with J. Shields, C.E.O. of Southern Coalition Movement Global. The team put on the most successful independent award ceremonies to date. After the success of the 2009 Awards Ceremony, J. Shields suggested adding the major categories along with the independent to put local and independent artist on a larger stage, while also honoring the majors for their accomplishments in the music industry. The awards came to be known as the Knocdown-SCM Awards, which includes both independent and major categories. When nominations opened in January 2010, KnocdownSCM Awards became the most talked about and most anticipated awards show in the South.
