Most of Country's biggest performers will have to wait until the big show April 7th, but three of the fastest rising New Country stars can celebrate early after winning huge awards in the Best New Country categories. Ashley McBryde, Luke Combs and Lanco have all been named winners in the new artist categories.
New Female Vocalist category listed nominees Ashley McBryde, Danielle Bradbery, Lindsay Ell and Carly Pearce. Yesterday the envelope was opened early for New Female and Ashley McBryde won the ACM award. McBryde is also nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year.
Luke Combs crushed the Best New Male Vocalist category to win the ACM. Lanco grabbed the Best New Group award for 2019. All winners received a surprise phone call from 14-time ACM Award® winner and two-time ACM Entertainer of the Year and current ACM Award nominee Carrie Underwood.
