That’s going to be hard to pick. I love all of them.  Justin Moore has worked so hard!  He’s a great performer, sings from his roots and he’s from Arkansas. I just love him!  Then there’s Lee Brice who put on one helluva show at the Barbecue Festival, Kacey Musgraves just rocks! I loved EVERY song on her debut album.  Thomas Rhett.. OMG!  He’s just been a star this past year. So many great songwriting credits. Brett Eldrege jumped out of a plane for heavens sake, he should get an award just for that. And then there is Paramalee. So awesome to see more bands break out.  Kip Moore was just a sweetheart at the fair a couple of years ago and “Hey Pretty Girl”… swoon!  Tyler Farr’s “Redneck Crazy” was a smash!  The jury is still out on who’ll get my vote. But I can say that ALL are deserving. So get to voting!  Here’s the link.
