The “American Country Countdown Awards” Nominees Are….

American Country Countdown Award

The American Country Countdown Awards, based on country music’s longest-running radio countdown show, “American Country Countdown with Kix Brooks,” which has recognized the best in country radio for more than 40 years, today announced the inaugural event’s finalists. Country megastar Luke Bryan dominates the list with seven nods, followed closely by superstar duo Florida Georgia Line, with six. Florida Georgia Line and Kix Brooks made the announcement on Cumulus radio’s nationally syndicated show, “America’s Morning Show with Blair Garner.”

The American Country Countdown Awards will air live from Nashville’s Music City Center Monday, Dec. 15 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX and feature performances by finalists Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Miranda Lambert. Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard will host the live music celebration. Additional performers, special award recipients and presenters will be announced.

Additional multiple category finalists include Jason Aldean, with four nods, and Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, who are tied with three. Brett Eldredge, Brantley Gilbert, Lady Antebellum, Justin Moore, Thomas Rhett and Cole Swindell each were named finalists in two categories.

American Country Countdown Awards finalists are determined based on statistics and radio airplay charts from November 1, 2013-October 31, 2014. The Finalists for Album of the Year were based on album sales from SoundScan and the finalists for Artist of the Year were based on a combination of Mediabase airplay, digital data provided by Big Champagne and tour information from Pollstar. All other award categories were made up of those with the largest audience reach, according to Mediabase.

The Breakthrough Artist of the Year Presented by Samsung GALAXY® category is the only fan-voted category. Fan voting begins on November 24 and continues through December 10. Fans will vote for their favorite Breakthrough finalist by including the following in a tweet: the artist’s Twitter handle, “Breakthrough Artist” and the hashtag #ACCAwards.

In the race for CMA’s New Artist of the Year award, first-time nominee Thomas Rhett will head to NASCAR’s most competitive track on Saturday to headline Fred’s 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series post-race concert at Talladega Superspeedway (10/18).

“Talladega is one of those iconic places that you grow up knowing about, whether you follow NASCAR or not,” said Thomas Rhett. “So, to be able to go there and perform…that definitely goes on the ‘Things I’ll tell my Grandkids’ list.”

The Platinum-selling singer/songwriter was also recently tapped as direct support for Florida Georgia Line on their upcoming ANYTHING GOES TOUR 2015, which kicks off Jan. 15 in Toledo, OH. The new tour will follow runs with some of Country Music’s biggest stars including Jason Aldean and Miranda Lambert.

Thomas Rhett just released the new single “Make You Wanna” from his debut album IT GOES LIKE THIS (The Valory Music Co.), which has already spawned two consecutive Platinum-certified No. one hits, spending a total of four weeks in the top position in the last year.

Thomas Rhett Debuts New Music Video for “Make Me Wanna”

Thomas Rhett‘s new music video for his new single “Make Me Wanna” debuted this week.

“Making this video put me a little outside my comfort zone,” said Thomas Rhett. “I wanted it to have a little swagger in a loose, fun way and reflect that sort of Bee Gees feel the song has. I’ve never claimed to be a dancer, but me and my band love to goof off on stage, especially to this song. I wanted the video to reflect that and let everyone know it’s OK to shake your hips a little bit.”

Directed by TK McKamy and recently shot in Nashville, the video features different sides of Thomas Rhett both on and off stage in what appears to be one seamless take.

“Make Me Wanna” is the new single off Thomas Rhett’s debut album IT GOES LIKE THIS (The Valory Music Co.), which has already spawned two consecutive Platinum-certified No. one hits. He will hit the road wtih Justin Moore beginning Oct. 23 in Columbia, MO. For more information and for a full list of tour dates, visit

Thomas Rhett celebrated his Platinum certified chart-topper “Get Me Some of That” yesterday afternoon at Nashville’s The Sutler. The smash hit is the second consecutive No. one off his debut album It Goes Like This (The Valory Music Co.), preceded by his Platinum-certified three-week No. one “It Goes Like This.”

“Without Country Radio, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do and get our music out there to the fans,” said Thomas Rhett. “So, I want to give them a shout-out for getting behind me and really believing in what we’re doing. And, special thanks and congrats to Cole, Michael and my dad for writing this song, and Luke for producing…it’s so cool getting to collaborate in these moments with your family and your friends.”

Thomas Rhett recently released “Make Me Wanna” to Country radio and announced he’ll join Justin Moore as direct support for the fall leg of his Off The Beaten Path Tour beginning Oct. 23. The new shows follow summer dates with Miranda Lambert and previous tours with Jason Aldean, Jake Owen and Brantley Gilbert. For more info and a full list of upcoming tour dates, visit c.
