“Getting nominated for ACM New Female Vocalist is maybe the coolest thing to happen to me,” shares Sunny. “I’ve been playing country music in honky-tonks and dive bars for almost a decade, so finally getting this kind of recognition is absolutely HUGE! I started out playing in Texas for beer and cheeseburgers, so this is just so gratifying!” she says laughing. “In all seriousness, it’s validating to know that the ACM considers my kind of country music and my voice something worth keeping an eye and an ear on, and for that, I’m very grateful.”
SUNNY SWEENEY GARNERS ACM NEW FEMALE VOCALIST OF THE YEAR NOMINATION
I have seen all kinds of viral video attempts here and there but must take my tiara off and give BIG PROPS to Texas born and raised, Sunny Sweeney! Many people admire her for her vocal prowess, and last week she added the recognition of an ACM Award nomination to her list of accolades!
Sunny was unveiled as one of the three nominees in The Academy of Country Music Awards’ New Female Vocalist of the Year category. Voting for the distinguished award began Monday, January 21 on VoteACM.com and remain open through Feb. 4 with the winner of the category continuing on to compete for the title of New Artist of the Year Award at the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards live on April 7, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/delayed PT on the CBS Television Network.
Sweeney shows off her sense of humor in her ACM campaign video with a spoof of Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg’s infamous SNL Digital Short, “D*ck In A Box.” View Sweeney’s version, in which she implores fans to “Click In The Box”.
