Nashville, TN - The Telly Awards has named Nashville band HERRICK as a Bronze winner in the 34th Annual Telly Awards for the music video for "Do You Love Me." With nearly 12,000 entries from all 50 states and 5 continents, the project won the Bronze Award in the Internet/Online Video-Music Video category.

Co-written by Donna and Kerry Herrick, "Do You Love Me" appears on the album NEW DANCE which was produced by Herrick with Music Row hit makers Michael Bonagura and Buddy Cannon. The single recently broke into the Top 100 on the Country Breakout Chart. The music video was directed by Robb Smith and produced by Blue Hawk Productions.

Herrick is comprised of Donna (mandolin/lead vocals), her husband Kerry Herrick (bass/vocals), percussionist/drummer Jeff Bradshaw and lead guitar player Jefferson Rogers. The music is varied and diverse, mixing tradition with contemporary sounds. Donna shines with startling vocal range and power. Herrick's dynamic live show has given the band a stronghold on the touring circuit with an average 125 shows a year. The band is known for compelling songwriting, comprehensive instrumentation, and killer harmonies.

Herrick previously won the prestigious Country Song Award in the 11th Annual Independent Music Awards (IMA) for "Cry Memphis," which also appears on NEW DANCE. Earlier, Herrick's dynamic musicianship and intricate harmonies proved to be a winning combination in the Jim Beam Battle of the Bands at the BamaJam music festival.

The Telly Awards program was founded in 1979 and is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and online commercials, video and films. Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.

For it's 34th season, The Telly Awards once again joined forces with YouTube to give the public the power to view and rate videos submitted as part of the People's Telly Awards. In addition to recognition from the Silver Telly Council, the judging panel that selects the Telly Awards winners, the Internet community helps decide the People's Telly Awards winners.

"The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video," said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards. "Herrick's accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production."

A prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals, each a past winner of a Silver Telly and a member of The Silver Telly Council, judged the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents. The Silver Council evaluated entries to recognize distinction in creative work - entries do not compete against each other - rather entries are judged against a high standard of merit. Less than 10% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Silver Telly, our highest honor. Approximately 25% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Bronze Telly.

"We worked really hard on this video and the album as a whole," Donna Herrick says. "We were in a really powerful period of growth musically, and kept discovering new directions. We wanted it to be the best it could possibly be for our fans; no cutting corners. The album was wonderful and painful and exciting; a true labor of love that was four years in the making. The video was great fun and is a solid representation of the song and our live performance."
