Little Rock, Ark. — June 8, 2018 — Arkansas Living magazine, the largest circulation publication in the state, won the Arkansas Country Music Association’s Magazine of the Year Award at the organization’s inaugural awards program on June 4 in Little Rock.

The award ceremony highlighted and honored Arkansas musicians in 27 categories ranging from entertainer of the year to lifetime achievement awards.

According to Nathan Hunnicutt, who produced the event, his goal is to recognize the rich history of the contributions of Arkansans to the country music genre and the support that magazines and other media provide the performers.

“Country music truly appreciates the long-term support that Arkansas Living has provided for Arkansas’ independent musicians,” Hunnicutt said. “There is nothing more satisfying than Arkansans helping other Arkansans to succeed and the electric cooperative magazine certainly has always helped.”

The Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas comprise 17 electric distribution cooperatives; Arkansas Electric Cooperatives, Inc. (AECI), a Little Rock-based cooperative that provides services to the distribution cooperatives; and Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corp. (AECC), a generation and transmission cooperative. The distribution cooperatives provide electricity to approximately 500,000 homes, farms and businesses in Arkansas and surrounding states.
