[lastfm]Chris Young[/lastfm] joined [lastfm]Justin Moore[/lastfm] in reading a partial list of nominations for The 44th Annual CMA Awards yesterday morning at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. In reading the nods, Chris found out that he is a first-time nominee in the New Artist of the Year category.
Young shared, “It’s just a great feeling. To be recognized like this as an artist, it means a lot to you… Probably the thing that I’m most proud of is just really how everybody else has treated my career. I’ve always been really excited and just proud to be on RCA and proud to be able to have my music heard.” He added, “I think about how excited I am, and then I’ll have people come up that are just as excited as me. I’m just really lucky that I’ve got people like that in my corner.”
