The 2015 Billboard Music Awards are set to return to ABC and will be broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday May 17 8|7c. The show will showcase this year’s hottest and biggest music stars but this a Country Music website and you most likely follow it cause you want to know Country Music News and Entertainment. Which top Country Music Artists will take home one of the gold microphone trophies?
Amongst the nominees are some of today’s hottest Country Stars and what they are nominated for one of the three categories:
Top Country Album
Jason Aldean, Old Boots, New Dirt
Garth Brooks, Man Against Machine
Luke Bryan, Crash My Party
Brantley Gilbert, Just As I Am
Miranda Lambert, Platinum
Taylor’s Prediction: Though Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan are coming off phenomenal years and with Garth Brooks announcing his World Tour and new album. I believe that Miranda Lambert will come out with the gold. Platinum is her fifth solo-album, which has garnished her a Grammy and Female Vocalist of the Year award at the ACM and CMA awards. She will be hitting the road for her “Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars” Tour that includes opening acts RaeLynn, Clare Dunn, Courtney Cole, and Ashley Monroe.
Top Country Artist
Florida Georgia Line
Taylor’s Prediction: This category is filled with some of the most talented country artists today so you know it’s going to be a pretty tight race. I hope Luke Bryan comes out with the gold but in all honesty I look for Florida Georgia Line to actually take it home. Florida Georgia Line has been pumping out hit after hit this year with Dirt (2014), Sun Daze (2014) and Sippin’ on Fire (2015). The duo is also nominated for Top Duo/Group against 5 Seconds of Summer, MAGIC!, Maroon 5, and One Direction.
Top Country Song
Jason Aldean, “Burnin’ It Down”
Luke Bryan, “Crash My Party”
Sam Hunt, “Leave the Light On”
Florida Georgia Line ft. Luke Bryan, “This Is How We Roll”
Florida Georgia Line, “Dirt”
Taylor’s Prediction: To be honest I think that the winner of this category is a no brainer. With having two songs nominated its bound that FGL will win but which one? As much as I’d like “Dirt” to take it home, I believe that FGL with the help of Luke Bryan will bring home the gold for “This is How We Roll”. Three of the hottest men in country music put together a fantastic party anthem that anyone can rock out to.
Little Big Town who was not nominated this year is set to perform their hit single “Girl Crush” with Veteran country artist Faith Hill.
