2009 ACM Award Nominees

2009 ACM Award Nominees
Mark your calender for April 5th, that’s the night that the Academy of Country Music will be televising their award show and the list is out of the nominees. No surprise that Brad Paisley is leading the way with six nominations. Heidi Newfield, former lead singer of Trick Pony now a solo act, was a bit of surprise with four nominations with her first solo release.

Also, an annoucement has been made that the ACMs are partnering with GAC to let the fans vote for the winners in the New Artist categories. These awards will actually be presented to the winners of each category on March 10th in a special on GAC hosted by Sara Evans. Then the winner in each category will be put into the new category of Top Artist with that award being presented on the awards show on April 5th.

Reba is back as host for this years show and she always makes it interesting. Kenny Chesney is up for Entertainer of the Year again after winning it the last few years, will the Academy present him with the award after he voiced his displeasure of having the award voted on by the fans last year? It should make for an exciting show. Carrie Underwood is up for the same award and this listener has to wonder if she is actually deserving of being in the category considering how new she is to the genre. She is up against some superstars, so we shall see what happens.
