The Academy of Country Music Awards is this Sunday night in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. This week I’m reviewing the awards. Here’s my take on the Vocal Group of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and Vocal Duo of the Year nominees.
The Vocal Group of the Year nominees are Lady Antebellum, Lanco, Little Big Town, Midland and Old Dominion. I think the award will go to Lady Antebellum. I would not be surprised if Old Dominion won.
Female Vocalist of the Year nominees are Kelsea Ballerini, Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire, Maren Morris and Carrie Underwood. I think it’s a toss up between Miranda and Carrie. I would not be surprised if Maren Morris won.
Male Vocalist of the Year nominees are Jason Aldean, Thomas Rhett, Chris Stapleton, Keith Urban and Chris Young. Jason Aldean wins. I would not be surprised if the winner is Thomas Rhett.
The Vocal Duo of the Year nominees are Brothers Osborne, Dan + Shay, Locash, Florida Georgia Line & Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. This is the hardest pick for me. Florida Georgia Line wins. I would not be surprised if Dan + Shay win. I don’t get Tim & Faith being in this category. I love them both but what gives ACMs?
Tomorrow I’ll give my take on the Entertainer of the Year nominees.
