Wayne Jacobs was nominated for three UK Country Radio awards

A country musician from Bexley has won the listeners song club award for the UK Country Radio awards for the fourth year running.

Wayne Jacobs, who lives in Riverdale Road, won the award for his song dedicated to the 9/11 attacks.

The 54 year old was inspired to write his track “May We Never Forget” after reading a plaque on the wall at Ground Zero.

Wayne said: “I got the idea from a plaque, which said may we never forget those who fell and those who carry on.”

The songwriter has also reached the regional finals for Open MicUK taking place this Sunday, and is a semi-finalist in the UK songwriting contest.
