BUFFALO, NY-Winning the Native American Music Award (NAMMY) for Best Pop Recording was probably the best birthday present Spencer Battiest could have wished for.
"Winning the Best Pop Recording was really great because in a nutshell, that's who I am," Battiest stated. "I didn't have a speech prepared, so I just spoke from the heart. I love pop music, I love to write songs and work at it every day. It was a great validation from my peers, the general public and NAMA."
Battiest accepted his award at the 16th annual Native American Music Awards. This was his third time attending where he's had seven previous nominations; three in 2011 for "The Storm" with his brother Zachary 'Doc' Battiest, two in 2014 for "love of My Life" and two this year for "Stupid in Love."
Battiest also presented a lifetime achievement award to Joseph FireCrow and performed during the show.
Battiest's family and some friends joined him at the NAMA, along with his manager Max Osceola III.
