Big & Rich React To Nomination For ‘Vocal Duo of the Year’ At The 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards

The 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards has just announced their finalists, and energetic country duo Big & Rich have scored a nomination for ‘Vocal Duo of the Year.’

“We have deep gratitude to the folks in our industry who voted for us for ‘Duo of the Year.’ We are in great company in this category, and appreciate all the support we continue to receive from our fans and country radio! Here’s to having a ‘Big and Rich Time’ in 2017!” – John Rich

“What a great morning! It’s fantastic to be nominated and be in the game representing what is the best of country music! It’s so good to be a part of that big celebration!” – Big Kenny

The nomination comes on the heels of a career-defining year, which saw the dynamic duo scoring their third back-to-back Top Ten record on Country radio with the smash hit, “Lovin’ Lately” featuring Tim McGraw. Since launching Big & Rich Records, the larger-than-life pair continued to soar to new heights with their project Gravity, after achieving consecutive back-to-back Top Ten hits for the first time in their 13 years together. The ACM award nominees look to capitalize on that momentum with the announcement of their upcoming single, “California,” which is set for release in March.

Make sure to tune in to the 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday, April 2nd @ 8PM ET/PT on CBS.
