Four Country Summer artists in the 2019 lineup are nominated for the Academy of Country Music Awards honoring country music’s biggest superstars and hottest emerging talent.

Jake Owen, headlining Country Summer on June 14, has a sweet spot for American nostalgia, the spirit of a sunny day and songs that make you smile. With a multitude of top country music awards already to his credit, he is nominated for Single of the Year “Down to the Honkytonk.” Producer: Joey Moi. Record label: Big Loud Records.

Old Dominion, the 2018 ACM Group of the Year winner, is again nominated for Group of the Year. Headlining Country Summer on June 16, Old Dominion has emerged as one of the hottest breaking bands in country music known for high-energy, phenomenal live performances.

Carly Pearce, who left high school to pursue music, worked shows at Dollywood and watched her first label deals fall apart, made a name for herself with Every Little Thing, her debut album. Deemed the new voice of country by People magazine, she is nominated for New Female Artist of the Year and performs at Country Summer on June 15.

Jimmie Allen, also performing at Country Summer on June 15, is nominated for New Male Artist of the Year. Recognized on nearly every “Ones to Watch” list, 2018 proved to be a turning point as he raced through major milestones earning a standing ovation at his Grand Ole Opry debut and cracking the Top 20 with his first-ever single.

Hosted by Reba McEntire, the 54th ACM Awards will broadcast at 8 p.m. ET/Delayed PT on April 7 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on the CBS Television Network. Three-Day Passes and Single-Day Tickets to Country Summer, June 15-17, are on sale now!
