2012 ACM Award for New Artist of the Year – Who Will Win?
Our prediction: Scotty McCreery. If the North Carolina-born singer was eligible to run for president, we'd be shouting "Four more years!" in 2016. More than any of the other nominees, McCreery's fans will work for him. Plus, he'll win a significant portion of the industry votes because he's so well-mannered and affable. The good news for the other two nominees is that it's possible to be nominated more than once in this category.
