Vocal powerhouse, Brooke Eden has been nominated for her first GLAAD Media Awards for ‘Outstanding Breakthrough Artist’ – the sole female country music artist nominated across all categories.  

“As a country artist, I aim to reach beyond the norms of our genre and connect the dots between small town living and real-life love of all forms," says Eden. "Although there is still more understanding and progress to be made, I’m so proud to see the forward movement in the country music space. The LGBTQ+ community belongs everywhere music is made, and I’m honoured to be amongst these icons that are making strides toward a more inclusive world.”

A milestone year for the country artist, in 2022, Eden was named “One to Watch” by Nashville Lifestyles, recognized as the “Next Big Thing” by Music Row, and she released her most personal and authentic project yet titled Choosing You.

She performed at NYC’s Pride March and made her national morning television debut on NBC TODAY, performing her deeply relatable song Left You For Me as well as her ACM Awards performance debut, joining Parmalee and Blanco Brown for their platinum multinational #1 smash hit Just the Way.

Partnering with the RIAA for an initiative called “Music Matters,” Eden met with Congressman David Cicilline, Chair of the Congressional LGBTQ+ Equality Caucus, for a conversation surrounding LGBTQ+ equality and representation, and with the campers of Girls Inc., at YWCA Nashville & Middle Tennessee, for an intimate discussion on how music inspired her to be her true self, encouraging campers to share their stories and what songs have inspired them.

Gracing the cover of Love Inc. Magazine, 2022 also brought personal victories for Eden as, she married her long-time girlfriend Hilary Hoover, exclusively giving People the first look into the Trisha Yearwood-officiated wedding, in which Garth Brooks sang them down the aisle.

Recognizing and honouring media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community and the issues that affect their lives, The GLAAD Media Awards - which fund GLAAD's work to accelerate LGBTQ acceptance - will be held in Los Angeles on March 30 and in New York City on May 13.
