    I’m assuming Scotty will be announcing the 3 finalists for New Artist of the Year since he won it last year. It is so great that he is being included in this event

    Windmills, I have to say I was reading along and thought for a split second that the line about “old-fart lover” Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan was actually part of the press release!  Thanks for the laugh of the day.:))

    And thrilled that Scotty’s going to be part of this event…

  • Lucie Laniel

    So did I….Blake ah! ah!.  

    As for Scotty I wonder if they will announce whether he will host an in-depth, exclusive look at this year’s 3 fan-voted nominees for ACM New Artist of the Year on GAC like The Band Perry did last year.

    Am I the only one who thinks it’s weird that Ryan is doing this. He has nothing to do with country music, lol.

    Nice gig for Scotty, though :)

    Good for Scotty and pretty cool that Ryan Seacrest is involved.  Should be an interesting format to announce the nominees.
