2012 ACM New Artists of the Year Finalists Announced.
The Academy of Country Music announced the nominees for the 2012 ACM Awards just a couple weeks ago (check out the complete list here), but they left one important category out, the New Artists of the Year! They left the category open so that fans could vote for the artists they wanted to be finalists, and its officially been narrowed down to three country newbies. Our three finalists are Brantley Gilbert, Hunter Hayes and Scotty McCreery!
Fans will be able to keep voting for the final finalist starting Monday, March 19th at noon. Voting will remain open until Sunday, April 1st at 5pm, pretty right up until the show starts! You can click here to vote.
The 2012 ACM Awards will air LIVE out of Las Vegas on Sunday, April 1st at 8pm on CBS! The award event will be hosted by Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton!
