For the fifth consecutive year, the Academy of Country Music has unveiled the nominations in their New Female Vocalist, New Male Vocalist and New Vocal Duo or Group general categories and will open for interactive fan voting on Monday, January 21. Voting will then close on Monday, Feb. 4. Acadiana’s own Atlantic Nashville recording artist Hunter Hayes leads the way for the Newcomer Nominees, and his home town couldn’t be more proud!

As with previous years, fans will crown a winner in each category, and those will go on to compete in the overall New Artist of the Year, which will be announced live on Sunday, April 7 on CBS at 8 p.m. EST. Tallies will combine with industry ACM professional voting to determine the final ballot.

Check out the early nominees, and get ready to vote, ya’ll! We love the fact that we, the fans, get to be a part of this!
