Your 2015 ACM Awards Nominees

Although I grew up in Brooklyn, NY, I have always loved country music. Growing up I listened to Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, Reba, Barbara Mandrel, and other country stars. These artists were among my first album purchases as well. 


Country Music continues to be a major part of my playlist today with Eric Church, Garth Brooks, Reba, and more. You can catch me blasting it in my car, singing along, and attending concerts with friends whenever I can. 


I can't believe this Sunday is the 50th Academy of Country Music Awards! I'll be watching (and tweeting of course). I'm always honored to be part of #CMchat and you can tweet along with us tomorrow night by using the hashtag. There will be some fun community questions and LOTS to talk about! Be sure to follow the founder of CMchat too, my friend @JessicaNorthey and @CMchatLive


I put together a cheat sheet of nominees so you can follow along and make your predictions. Please feel free to tell me who YOU think will win in the comments! I do LOVE hearing from you!
