ACM New Artist Nominees Will Sing in Las Vegas

Nearly all of the new artists nominated for the Academy of Country Music Awards will perform at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on May 17, the night before the awards ceremony. Luke Bryan, Jack Ingram and Jake Owen are up for top new male vocalist, while Sarah Buxton, Kellie Pickler and Taylor Swift are nominated for top new female artist. Carolina Rain and Lady Antebellum, who are nominated for top new vocal duo or group, will also perform, but fellow nominees the Wreckers will not. Tickets are $50 and proceeds will benefit the ACM Charitable Fund. The ACM Awards will air live on CBS.
