BOSTON MUSIC AWARDS 1999

Date: April 22, 1999
Venue: Orpheum Theatre, Boston

Aerosmith must be crawling under a rock this morning. They won a Grammy and performed on the Oscars this year, but were humbled at the Kahlua Boston Music Awards last night. They won a video award and singer Steven Tyler got his obligatory nod for best male rock vocalist, but that was it. Instead, the big winner was country singer Jo Dee Messina, who waltzed off with three trophies, including the top prize for act of the year.
