Eric Church, the Band Perry Pocket ACM Awards Thanks to Fans
Eric Church and the Band Perry are country music fans' favorite new artists, according to the votes. Church grabbed Top New Solo Vocalist and the sibling trio pocketed Top New Vocal Duo or Group in the pre-ACM fan-voting spree.
Now, Church and the Band Perry will go head-to-head as nominees for Top New Artist, which is also a fan-voted category. 2010 Top New Artist Luke Bryan will pass on the crown when he presents the trophy at the 2011 ACM Awards on April 3.
The 'Hell On the Heart' singer and the 'If I Die Young' group will receive their official Top New Solo Vocalist and Top New Vocal Group awards at a GAC’s 'ACM Top New Artists' special, which airs for the first time on March 14 at 9PM ET.
Fans can vote for their favorite of the two newcomers here starting March 11. The 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards will be broadcast live from Las Vegas on April 3.
