Update on New Artist of the Year Nominees

I've been wondering lately about when we'd find out about the final three nominees for the ACM New Artist of the Year. According to the ACM website, nominees will be announced sometime this month with voting beginning on Monday, March 19th and will close on April 1st, with the winner being announced live during the ACM Awards on CBS later that day.

Just like with the original 8 nominees, a GAC special will air featuring the final 3 nominees. That will feature interviews and exclusive performances and premieres March 19 at 9:00 PM ET and airs through April 1.

Can't wait for the official announcement of the final nominees!

  4. I think that we all want this badly for Scotty and after voting daily for so long without knowing the total, we feel anxious.

  5. Gramma S and all,
    "Voting for the final two rounds will consist of a combination of industry and fan voting" according to theboot.com. Scotty's got a lot going for him. I'm anxious as well to find out the final nominees. It's a long wait!

  7. Everyone pray that the country music industry will be fair to Scotty. He absolutely deserves to be one of the three nominees. Scotty has broken so many records this year!

  9. Tarah, thanks for posting this info! I have written it down on my calendar. It is nerve-racking waiting for the 3 nominees to be announced, but I believe Scotty will be one of them. Then all we have to do is vote, pray, & continue to think positive. "With GOD All Things Are Possible"

  10. Tarah, thanks for letting us know about the announcement of the final three. Really don't understand why they are taking so long to make this announcement??? Just really makes me nervous, although I feel that Scotty will make it into the finals. Then we have to wait until March 19th to be able to vote again! Yes, Grandma Vera, it is so nerve-racking! ACM needs to realize that us "Grandmas for Scotty" don't need all this stress!

  11. I have no doubt that our Scotty will make the Final Three. We need to focus on the final round voting to actually get him the award. A campaign is needed so we can vote effectively. No wasted votes. Once the announcement comes out, we can figure out what to do. In the mean time, promote and introduce Scotty to all your friends so they will be ready to vote for Scotty comes March.
