    Jimmie Allen gives it his “Best Shot” and lands an ACM nom

    It’s been a life-changing year for newcomer Jimmie Allen. Twelve months ago, his debut single, “Best Shot,” was released, and it went on to finish 2018 as his very first number one. Then, Wednesday morning, the Delaware native found out he’s up for an Academy of Country Music Award. “Last year I watched the ACM Awards from the nose bleeds section wearing a suit I couldn’t afford,” Jimmie revealed on Twitter. “This year I’m nominated alongside some of my favorite artists for New Male Artist of The Year.” “Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote for me,” he added.

    Jake Owen goes “Down to the Honky Tonk” for an ACM nod

    Of all the songs nominated for ACM Single of the Year at the April awards in Vegas, only one has the distinction of being a current top ten hit: Jake Owen’s “Down to the Honky Tonk.” It’s a nod that apparently caught the Florida native off-guard. “Holy guacamole…” Jake reacted on Twitter, adding the avocado emoji. “I just woke up with my little girl laying on my shoulder to find out about this!” “Life can’t get much better,” he added. “Thanks so much to my team and fans out there! Wow. I’m seriously so excited.” The “I Was Jack (You Were Diane)” hitmaker […]

    Miss Me More? Kelsea Ballerini’s surprising omission from the ACM’s Female vocalist category

    When ACM Awards host Reba McEntire revealed the nominees for this year’s 54th annual awards Wednesday morning, there was one name surprisingly missing from the Female Artist of the Year category: Kelsea Ballerini. Kelsea’s been up for the trophy every year since 2015, the same year she took home the New Female Vocalist of the Year award. In 2016, the Academy also gave her its Gene Weed Milestone Award, and she’s been nominated for the videos for “Legends” and “Peter Pan” as well. Around the time the nods were announced, Kelsea simply tweeted, “Wow…”, which resulted in an outpouring of support from her fans. The […]

    After four number-ones, Luke Combs is still the same: “I’ve just got nicer boots now”

    Tuesday at the Corsair Distillery in Nashville, Luke Combs celebrated his fourth #1 hit in a row, “She Got the Best of Me.” Talking with a group of journalists before the party, the North Carolina native agreed that one of the reasons for his success is that he has a lot in common with his fans.  In fact, Luke says he’s changed very little since “Hurricane” became his first #1 in 2017. “Somebody showed up at my house yesterday for an interview or something like that,” he explained, “and I was out cleaning the cat litter thing out. And they […]

    Listen now: Kip Moore takes “The Bull” by the horns with new single

    The rebellious fan favorite “The Bull” is Kip Moore’s third single from his Slowheart album. “Most of all/most of all/thanks to the bulls that bucked me off,” the Georgia native sings on the track, which happens to be the first release of his career that he didn’t have a hand in writing. But even though he didn’t help craft “The Bull,” Kip says it still captures his outlook perfectly. “This song embodies who I am and what we’ve been doing on the road as a band for years,” he explains. “I think it’s something a lot of people can relate to, having to get back […]
