This year the CMA Awards Best New Artist Category is stocked full of fan favorites, mine included! I mean I literally have every one of the new artists CD’s and love them all. Of all the nominees, [mp3com-artist]Luke Bryan[/mp3com-artist] is my favorite! Tailgates and Tanlines is of the best albums of the year in my opinion (Especially track 5, I Don’t Want This Night To End.) Other nominees include, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Band Perry[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Eric Church[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Thompson Square[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Chris Young[/lastfm] and as I read the list, I realize that I love a bunch of songs by these artists. It is gonna be a tough one to call this year for the awards show that’s for sure!

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Eric Church[/lastfm] reacted to his CMA New Artist Of The Year nomination yesterday afternoon. He said in a press release, “Though I’ve tried to make my career not just about winning awards, it’s always great to be recognized, and I’m especially honored in this case because the CMA voting members are my peers. It’s always really rewarding when other people who also do this for a living acknowledge what you’re doing.”

This is [mp3com-artist]Luke Bryan[/mp3com-artist]’s second nomination in this category.

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Band Perry[/lastfm] says that where part of their success comes from is a central message or theme that runs through the band. Kimberly Perry says, We have different things for different folks all in our album, but I would say our overwhelming Band Perry theme is just sort of sticktuitiveness, 11 years of blood, sweat and tears to lead you to this end will definitely give you a lot of life lessons and so half of this battle is just outlasting everybody else [laughs]. And so, we hope that in our way that we can just keep the nose to the grindstone and work hard.”

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Chris Young[/lastfm] reacted on Twitter.

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Thompson Square[/lastfm] talks about Shawnna being a child watching the CMA Award’s and acting like she was accepting the award.
