Sam Hunt was voted 2015 MusicRow Awards Breakthrough Artist of the Year. The MCA Nashville star joins a long list of previous winners in the category who have gone on to fill their trophy cases.

Almost every year since 2006, MusicRow’s Breakthrough Artist winners also received the CMA New Artist/Horizon Award later the same year, including Kacey Musgraves (2013), The Band Perry (2011), Zac Brown Band (2010), Lady Antebellum (2008), Taylor Swift (2007), and Carrie Underwood (2006).

Additionally, the MusicRow Awards are often a key predictor for CMA Song of the Year, with honors at both ceremonies going to “I Drive Your Truck” (2013), “If I Die Young” (2011), “The House That Built Me” (2010) and “In Color” (2009).
