CMC Announces International Artist Nominations
Country Music Channel is an Autralian network dedicated to domestic and international appreciation of country music. Their website is now offering the chance to vote on a variety of catagories. One of the biggest, and one that certainly contains a lot of American names, is International Artist of the Year.
Voting actually began at the beginning of January. The deadline to cast votes is February 28th. International Artist of the year is one of the more prestigious accolades handed out from our friends down under.
This year's list includes blockbuster talents from American Country.
And the nominees are:
Alan Jackson Allison Krauss The Band Perry Blake Shelton Brad Paisley Carrie Underwood Darius Rucker Dierks Bentley Doc Walker Dolly Parton Eli Young Band Emerson Drive Joe Nichols Keith Urban Kenny Chesney Kid Rock Lady Antebellum Luke Bryan Martina McBride Miranda Lambert Rascal Flatts Reba Sara Evans Shania Twain Steel Magnolia Sugarland Taylor Swift Tim McGraw Toby Keith Trace Adkins
As you can see, American artist dominate the nominees. That just makes sense of course. There are many Australian artists represented in othe catagories, but the International award will more than likely go to an American country star.
So, if you'd like to make your opinions known, head over to CMC and cast your votes before the end of next month.
