    Sunny Sweeney's promotional video for her ACM nomination

    She's chosen a spoof from the Pop world (don't worry - Scott Borchetta and Billboard haven't stolen her soul - she was a comedian for a short while before taking up music)

    I hope you like it

    Her being nominated as a newcomer is also really funny.

    Newcomer nominations are often given to people who've actually been around a while. Her first album was a self release. She had no idea how many copies to ask for, but the engineer told her it was good and she should try 2000. It was John Lomax III who persuaded Scott Borchetta to reissue it. Since then, she's cut one album, with significant stylistic differences, so as far as Music Row are concerned, she'd be a newcomer.

    I give the ACM kudos for introducing more Roots elements into their artist nominations. I see it as (not for the first time) an assertion of a slightly different approach from the Nashville based CMA - signalling some desire for counter-balance to the more Pop-leaning emphasis on the Taylor Swift approach to genre-blurring.

    I love both Sunny Sweeney and Kacey Musgraves, whom I've been "following" for far longer than their chances of getting nominations. I'd be really torn to have to choose between them. I've nothing against Jana Kramer, but I know less about her. I would guess that Jana's chances are high for winning this, though, as she seems to have a growing fan base and has built up a more celebrity-conscious image.
