Sugar Hill artists Joey + Rory are on the campaign trail. Nominated for an ACM Award in the Top New Duo category, the husband-and-wife team have gone viral, posting a new original song, “It’d Be Nice,” on You Tube that ever-so-gently and oh-so-cleverly pleads with fans to support them in the fan-voted category. Sample lyric: “We’ve had some time to think about it friends, and it don’t really matter if we win…but it’d be nice.”
Beginning today (2/26), and continuing through Friday, March 12 at 4 p.m. CT, fans can log on to www.VoteACM.com to go directly to the ballot page being hosted at GAC’s website and vote in three newcomer categories including Top New Solo Vocalist, Top New Vocal Duo and Top New Vocal Group. Additionally, each of the nine finalists is featured in “ACM Showcase 2010” now airing on GAC.
One winner in each of the three categories will be announced mid-March and will move on to compete for Top New Artist. Voting for the Top New Artist category will begin on VoteACM.com Thursday, April 1 and will close April 18. The winner will be announced during the 45th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday, April 18.
