NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Texas born and raised, Sunny Sweeney
has long been heralded for her vocal prowess, and now she can add the
recognition of an ACM Award nomination to her list of accolades as
earlier this week Sunny was unveiled as one of the three nominees in The
Academy of Country Music Awards’ New Female Vocalist of the Year
category.  Voting for the distinguished award will begin on VoteACM.com on Monday, January 21 and
remain open through Feb. 4 with the winner of the category continuing
on to compete for the title of New Artist of the Year Award at the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards live on April 7, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/delayed PT on the CBS Television Network.  
 
“Getting
nominated for ACM New Female Vocalist is maybe the coolest thing to
happen to me,” shares Sunny. “I’ve been playing country music in
honky-tonks and dive bars for almost a decade, so finally getting this
kind of recognition is absolutely HUGE!  I started out playing in Texas
for beer and cheeseburgers, so this is just so gratifying!” she says
laughing. “In all seriousness, it’s validating to know that the ACM
considers my kind of country music and my voice something worth keeping
an eye and an ear on, and for that, I’m very grateful.”  
 
Sweeney shows off her sense of humor in her ACM campaign video with a spoof of Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg’s infamous SNL Digital Short, “Dick In A Box.” View Sweeney’s version, in which she implores fans to “Click In The Box,” HERE
