Newcomer Awards Nominees Announced for 2013 ACMs
Do you have a favorite newcomer to the country music scene? If so, now is your chance to vote for your favorite new artist. The Academy of Country Music and Great American Country announced that voting for the categories of New Female Vocalist, New Male Vocalist and New Vocal Duo or Group for the Academy of Country Music Awards will open on Monday, Jan. 21.
This will mark the fifth year in a row that fans can vote for their favorite newcomers through VoteACM.com and GACTV.com/ACM. Once all of the fan votes are tallied, the winners from each category will face off against each other in the New Artist of the Year category. The New Artist of the Year winner will be announced during the live broadcast of the ACM Awards.
The first round of fan voting kicks off on Monday at noon ET, and will be open until Monday, Feb. 4 at 3PM ET. Once the winners of each category are announced, the New Artist of the Year race will begin. Then, the second round of fan voting will open on Monday March 25 and will close on April 7.
You can see who snags the trophy for New Artist of the Year — as well as winners in other categories — during the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards on CBS on Sunday, April 7 at 8PM ET/PT.
