Bobby Bones and I are taking our shows to downtown Nashville to cover CMA Week, beginning Monday November 4th. I'm making my predictions over the next few days on who to expect to win the big awards!
Today, we're looking at New Artist Of The Year. And the nominees are:
Florida Georgia Line
Brett's off to a great start but too new, FGL has spent 2013 as one of the biggest acts in the business, Kacey Musgraves is tied with Taylor Swift as the most nominated artist of the year, Kip Moore has had a consistent string of hits over the past year, while Lee Brice has had some big songs and certainly has been around awhile. Is he still considered "new"?
Bet on Florida Georgia Line here. The song "Cruise" is the longest-running #1 hit in Billboard history, spending 24 weeks at #1. That's insane. They're already selling out arenas on their first headlining tour. This places them far and away the biggest act in this category.
Here are the Top 5 biggest-sellers this week in Wichita:
#5) It Goes Like This -- Thomas Rhett
#4) Whatever She's Got -- David Nail
#3) Used Up -- Logan Mize
#2) Ready, Set, Roll -- Chase Rice
#1) That's My Kind Of Night -- Luke Bryan
If you're wondering about a couple unfamiliar names, I can fill you in. Logan Mize is from Clearwater and has developed a HUGE local following here! That's his new single. Chase Rice was runner-up on the TV show "Survivor" and has a big following from the show.
I am so pumped for this season of Jayhawk basketball! Rock Chalk!
