On a warm summer’s eve, on a train bound for nowhere, the hero of country music legend Kenny Rogers’ epic musical narrative, “The Gambler,” met a drifter who taught him the meaning of life and the rules you have to follow to get by in his world.

To kick off the autumn season, many of Temecula’s wineries uphold the yearly tradition of the grape stomp and harvest festival.

For 2016, the Temecula Valley Music Awards have grown from nine categories to twelve including acoustic, blues, country, pop, rock and more, even including categories for local cover and tribute bands, which have become a favorite amongst wine country audiences in recent years. Currently on the TVMA, artists can submit themselves or their band for nominee consideration.
