Thomas Rhett Honoured By Nominations

Published On April 8, 2015 | By Cheryl Johnstone | Country Music News

As a first-time ACM Awards nominee, you can bet that Thomas Rhett will be front and center when the show airs live from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on April 19th. Thomas is up for New Artist of the Year, and he says he’s especially proud to be nominated this year, the Academy’s 50th.

“Being nominated for an ACM is such an honor. It’s my first nomination for an ACM, and this year is special ‘cause it’ll be the first time it’s not in Vegas in a long time, and it’s the 50-year anniversary, so just really proud to be a part of this particular ACM. To be nominated for the ‘New Artist’ category and with my buddy Sam and Cole, it’s just a really fun category and the fact that it’s partially fan-voted makes it even cooler. So you got the industry that halfway votes and then all your fans actually have to be dedicated enough to go vote for you every day. And so it really shows you a lot of where your core fan-base is and it’s fun to interact with them on Twitter and Instagram and all that kind a stuff. And just to watch them engage in what we do is just a really cool thing.”

Since the award is partially fan-voted, Thomas has been having fun interacting with his fans on social media and encouraging them to vote every day.

The ACM Awards will air live on CBS. Thomas will perform during the broadcast.
