FTCR Awards Nominees

Yep, we’re that arrogant and obnoxious over here at FTCR that we thought we would hand out awards for Album and Song of the Year. Of course, we don’t have the kind of awards that can go in a glass cabinet, but we CAN bake, and that’s just as good. It just means said artists will have to come to our houses to collect their awards. No biggie.
