POLL: Who Should Win New Male Vocalist of the Year at the 2018 ACM Awards?
UPDATE: This poll has closed early. On March 26, the ACM revealed that Brett Young, Lauren Alaina and Midland are 2018's New Male Vocalist of the Year, New Female Vocalist of the Year and New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year, respectively.
With a lineup like this one for the New Male Vocalist of the Year at the 2018 ACM Awards, it seems like an impossible choice. Two of this year's nominated names re-appear from the nominees list in 2017, a testament to the holding power of these newcomers.
Kane Brown is a repeat nominee for this award, and he's also in the running this year for Vocal Event of the Year, for his collaboration with Lauren Alaina on "What Ifs." Then there's Luke Combs, who hit the country music scene like the title of his No. 1 debut single, "Hurricane." He's been on a "redneck roll" since, with another hit in "When It Rains It Pours" ... and, no doubt, more to come.
In addition to being one of The Boot's 2018 Artists to Watch, Devin Dawson is climbing his way to the top with his debut single, "All on Me," while fellow nominee Russell Dickerson is another up-and-comer who shows no signs of slowing after the ascent of his debut hit, "Yours." Rounding out the category is Brett Young, another returning candidate to the lineup for New Male Vocalist of the Year. With a solid repertoire of hits including "In Case You Didn't Know" and "Like I Loved You," he keeps cranking out chart-climbing songs.
