The big stars are out for awards season. New songs on the radio for April 2013 made their debut at the ACM Awards on April 7. Hunter Hayes and Luke Bryan were two singers to introduce new music, while Blake Shelton played his new one for the first time at the Las Vegas awards show.
The setlist for the 2013 ACM Awards isn't as impressive as the top spots on the ToC Top 40 Country Songs list for April 2013. New songs from Miranda Lambert, Kenny Chesney, George Strait, Hunter Hayes and Blake Shelton (twice) all find themselves inside the Top 20, but none of these cuts are No. 1. That honor goes to one of the more unique and surprising singles in quite some time.
