Sam Hunt Earns New Artist of the Year at 2015 ToC Awards
Brett Eldredge had a strong showing, as did Cole Swindell. Both men rallied fans to their cause throughout the month-long fan-voted awards, but the 'Leave the Night On' singer took the lead and never looked back. With over 30 percent of the vote, it's clear his mix of country themes and R&B grooves is here to stay.
Maddie & Tae and Chase Rice also pulled in plenty of votes. Of the seven nominees, Dan + Shay and RaeLynn came in last. Look for Hunt on Lady Antebellum's Wheels Up Tour in 2015. He's also headlining the Lipstick Graffiti Tour as he watches his latest single 'Take Your Time' climb the Billboard airplay chart.
