This is an exciting time of the year for everyone in Nashville and especially here at UMG Nashville. We are proud to have three artists in the final round of voting for the ACM awards! Luke Bryan and George Strait are nominated for ACM Entertainer of the Year and Kip Moore is nominated for New Artist of the Year!

George Strait, or King George as everyone knows him, is nominated for Entertainer of the Year and an entertainer he is. He has been entertaining crowds upon crowds of fans and sold more than 69 million albums. However, entertainer is an understatement..A world-renown mega-star is a better description.  We are so proud of George and it is an honor to be on his team. You can join his team as well by voting for him for ACM Entertainer of the Year at

Luke Bryan has had hit after hit, driving fans to their feet and shakin’ their hips. This year, you will also find him as a co-host for the award show alongside Blake Shelton as he returns as the reigning 2013 Entertainer of the Year. He sold more than 500,000 albums in the first week with Crash My Party and just released his 6th Spring Break album where he played for more than 230,000 people in Panama City Beach, Florida, in two days. Luke Bryan can crash our party anytime and apparently he is crashing other parties too… check this out

Kip Moore has been hitting the road this year with Lady Antebellum, rockin’ crowds and showing off his signature “flying man” stage pose and dance moves. Performing his 3 number one hits “Somethin’ Bout A Truck,” “Beer Money” and “Hey Pretty Girl” along with brand new songs off his upcoming sophomore album, which will be released this Fall. Kip has a passion for his career unlike anyone else as well as a sense of humor. Watch to see what we are talking about and don’t forget to vote Kip for New Artist of the Year.
