Country music artists will go far to win a fan’s love and adoration.
And they will go even further to get your ACM Award “New Artist of the Year” vote.
Take for example 2015 “New Artist of the Year” semi-finalist Tyler Farr, best known for his hits “Redneck Crazy”, “Whiskey in my Water and his new single “A Guy Walks into a Bar”. His desire to get your vote landed him in a children’s classroom recently, trying to convince a group of grade school students that he should win an ACM Award this year. “If you are up against Luke Bryan, then you probably have a chance,” stresses a freckled and red-haired young boy.
For the record… adorable boy…Bryan hasn’t been in the “New Artist of the Year” category since 2010.
The “New Artist of the Year” category is determined via a combination of votes from fans and professional ACM members. This year’s semi-finalists include Farr, Brett Eldredge, Sam Hunt, Kip Moore, Thomas Rhett, Chase Rice, Cole Swindell and Dan + Shay.
