Big & Rich React To Nomination For ‘Vocal Duo of the Year’ At The 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards®
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (February 16, 2017)
– The 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards® has just announced their
finalists, and energetic country duo Big & Rich have scored a
nomination for ‘Vocal Duo of the Year.’ The event will take place on
April 2 in Las Vegas at T-Mobile Arena, where the winners will be
announced. The ACM Awards will also be broadcast on CBS Television
Network (live 8:00-11:00pm, ET/delayed PT). View full list of

“We have deep gratitude to the folks in our industry who voted for us
for ‘Duo of the Year.’ We are in great company in this category, and
appreciate all the support we continue to receive from our fans and
country radio! Here’s to having a ‘Big and Rich Time’ in 2017!” – John Rich

“What a great morning! It’s fantastic to be nominated and be in the
game representing what is the best of country music! It’s so good to be a
part of that big celebration!” – Big Kenny

The nomination comes on the heels of a career-defining year, which
saw the dynamic duo scoring their third back-to-back Top Ten record on
Country radio with the smash hit, “Lovin’ Lately” featuring Tim McGraw.
Since launching Big & Rich Records, the larger-than-life pair
continued to soar to new heights with their project Gravity, after
achieving consecutive back-to-back Top Ten hits for the first time in
their 13 years together. The ACM award nominees look to capitalize on
that momentum with the announcement of their upcoming single,
“California,” which is set for release in March.
