Composer Brian Keane has received three Sports Emmy nominations in the  "Outstanding Music Composition/Direction/Lyrics" category. The 23rd Annual Sports Emmy Awards will take place Tuesday, April 23rd, at the Marriott Marquis in New York City.

David Beld, director of the Sports Emmy Awards, reports that Keane's coup may be unprecedented. He secured two nods for his work on HBO documentaries, Do You Believe in Miracles? The Story of the 1980 U.S. Hockey Team and Shot Heard Around the World, the story of Bobby Thompson's unforgettable home run. His third nomination was for CBS's Pistol Pete: The Life and Times of Pete Maravich, which he co-wrote with Buckwheat Zydeco. "In my 11 years at the Emmy Awards, I can't recall any composer receiving all the nominations in a single category," Beld remarked. "I'd say the odds are stacked in Brian Keane's favor this year."

"Each of these projects was very special," Keane says. "It was tough to pick a favorite so I entered all three. It will be very interesting to see which way the Emmy committee goes."

Brian Keane has scored over 200 films during his diverse career including such memorable documentaries as Ric Burns's New York, The Donner Party and Long Journey Home: The Irish in America, a Grammy winner for Best Soundtrack. He has also scored several Emmy Award-winning sports documentaries including Babe Ruth and Spirit of the Games for HBO. Early in his career, he established himself as a prolific Grammy Award-winning record producer working with such artists as Linda Ronstadt, Pete Seeger and the London Symphony Orchestra. He has over three dozen Billboard chart-topping albums under his belt, including five Number One CDs and two Records of the Year. Keane's new studio, designed by architect John Storyk, is currently under construction on a 10.5 acre site in Sandy Hook, Conn.
