2010 WYCD Hoedown Artist [lastfm]Justin Moore[/lastfm] lands his 1st Major Award Nomination for CMT Music Awards Breakthrough Video!
[lastfm]Justin Moore[/lastfm] has earned his first major awards show nod for his #1 hit single, “Small Town USA.” Justin’s poignant anthem celebrating small town life, co-written by the star because he missed his mother’s cooking, earned a 2010 CMT Music Award nomination this week for the “USA Weekend Breakthrough Video of the Year Award.” The video (directed by Chris Hicky) is especially sentimental to the star.
“Small Town USA” was shot in Justin’s own hometown of Poyen, Arkansas — Population 272 – and features generations of his family. Justin’s wife Kate also appears in the video as his love interest. “It’s very cool to be nominated for a CMT Music Award for ‘Small Town USA.’ This video is definitely special to me,” says Justin. “To have made that video in my own hometown and to have a lot of my family in it – including my late grandpa – is very cool. I’m very appreciative to my fans and to CMT to be mentioned in the company that I am — whether we win or not.”
