The Scottish Music Awards are to return this year for the 23rd installment and will take place at the world-famous Barrowland Ballroom for the first time.
And there will be guest appearances from The Fratellis, Nina Nesbitt, and Lanarkshire’s own Nathan Evans.
One of the most celebrated nights of the year will be presented by Edith Bowman on Saturday, November 13, and the return to a physical event following last year’s virtual stream will mark a new era for Scotland’s national awards.

Hosting the biggest and best in the music industry, the Specsavers Scottish Music Awards will raise funds and awareness of the vitally important work Nordoff Robbins music therapy charity does.
Donald C MacLeod MBE, chairman of the Nordoff Robbins Events and Fundraising Committee Scotland, said: “We’re delighted to announce the return of the Specsavers Scottish Music Awards, and we’re even more excited for the event to return to a physical award show in Scotland’s iconic and legendary live music venue, Barrowland Ballroom.
“The venue is renowned around the world and is an integral part of Scotland’s music community, so it will certainly be a night to remember.”
Lanarkshire lad Nathan is set to perform at the event and has also been nominated for Best Male Breakthrough act.
He said: “I still can’t believe that I have been asked to attend the awards, never mind being nominated for one.
“Coming from where I was in January to where I am now is just incredible and to say that I’m going to be performing and attending the awards, it’s an incredible feeling and an absolute honour.
“I’m looking forward to November, it can’t come quickly enough. Dreams really do come true.”
