    1st round of ACM newcomer nominees announced

    I have to say the country music industry has a really broad definition of the the word newcomer.


    http://music.yahoo.com/news/1st-roun...174406795.html


    Jana Kramer, Kacey Musgraves and Sunny Sweeney are up for new female vocalist, Lee Brice, Brantley Gilbert and Hunter Hayes will compete for new male artist and Florida Georgia Line, Love and Theft and Thompson Square are nominated in duo/group.
    Fans can vote at music network GAC's website starting Jan. 21.

    Not sure how new she is considered, but nice to see Sunny Sweeny nominated. She's got some good stuff.

    Brice and Thompson Square are not exactly newcomers either.

    I believe the same thing happened with Luke Bryan one year. I think they consider "new" to mean like, you had your breakthrough (though truthfully, neither Sunny nor Thompson Square really did this year)

    I'm rootin' for Jana XD

    I'd like to vote for Kacey Musgraves. Just enjoyed "Merry Go "Round". The song is a great example for country music

    I agree! It's a great example of folk/bluegrass influences...and I'm so glad that it's doing well on Country radio (it's now Top 15). Woo!

    Yes, you are right And I also like that the lyric of this song is a very country lyric. I have a feeling that it is a story
