Song of the Year and Songwriter of the Year nominees have been announced by the Academy of Country Music (ACM) to complete 2016 ACM Awards categories.

“The ACM Board of Directors recently voted to revise the prestigious Song of the Year Award criteria to allow the greater songwriting community a stronger voice in determining the final nominees,” said Tiffany Moon, Executive Vice President and Managing Director of the ACM. “Songwriters are at the inception of all of this; we’re privileged to have their expertise in choosing the most well-crafted songs.”

A professional panel comprised entirely of award-winning songwriters helped select the nominees for the category that were then voted on by the Composer class of ACM Membership to appear on the final ballot.

The 51st annual ACM Awards will be held Sunday, April 3, airing live at 8 p.m. ET on the CBS Television Network.
