It’s that time again… the annual CMA Awards Show is nearly here and the nominations are out! Lauren Alaina, Dustin Lynch and TJ & John of Brothers Osborne announced the nominees on GMA this morning.
It’s the first time Alaina has been nominated in any category, and the second time Brothers Osborne have been nominated for vocal duo – they won the first last year. Miranda Lambert leads the nominations with 5 nods including female vocalist of the year and album of the year. Other shoutouts include Chris Stapleton, Maren Morris and Jason Isbell’s surprise nod for The Nashville Sound. Continue reading “CMA Awards Nominations Are Here”
CMT have revealed that Nashville’s very own Deacon Claybourne aka Charles Esten, will host this year’s CMT awards on June 7th, just days before the cast come over to the UK for Nashville In Concert – first date being June 9th in Birmingham. The actor took to twitter to announce the news in a very Nashville fashion.

The Billboard Music Awards nominations have been announced and there’s a noticeable lack of female artists – particularly in the country genre. In a time where the likes of Maren Morris, Kelsea Ballerini, Miranda Lambert and Lauren Alaina regularly feature high in all of Billboard’s top country charts, I only wish they were better represented in the nominations.
With the release of Lambert’s ACM award winning The Weight of These Wings and Morris’ Grammy nominated Hero, it’s surprising that neither made it into the ‘Top Country Album’ category at the least.
The snub hasn’t gone unnoticed either as Maren Morris tweeted saying that it was ‘interesting’ that female artists have been overlooked. Continue reading “BBMA Nominations Are Out But Where Are the Women?”
FGL are nominated for 5 ACMs and have received 2 awards before tonight’s broadcast. The vocal duo take home the awards for Single of the Year for “H.O.L.Y” and Vocal Event of the Year for “May We All” ft. Tim McGraw.
Tonight we’ll see whether they can hold onto their title of Vocal Duo of the Year as they have the past 3 years. I believe this year there is tough competition.
The duo are also up for Entertainer of the Year and Album of the Year for Dig Your Roots.
This is the moment we have been waiting for since Traveller was released. Chris Stapleton has tweeted that he is playing a new song tonight on the ACMs!
Although we still don’t have a date for the new album, it is if nothing else, a confirmation that the wait is almost over. I am beyond excited to hear the new music and can’t wait for it’s release to get it on repeat.
