Last year, Brantley Gilbert was nominated for ACM New Artist of the Year. He made it through one round of fan voting to the semi-finals, but in the end, was overtaken by American Idol Scotty McCreery. As it turns out though, Brantley Gilbert's fans are relentless. His supporters have once again voted him through a first round which included New Male Vocalist competition from Hunter Hayes and Lee Brice. Now, Brantley Gilbert will enter a second round of voting to determine if he will become the 2013 New Artist of the Year.
Fan voting for the ACM New Artist of the Year resumes March 25th through April 7th at VoteACM.com. Results of that voting will be announced during the live telecast of the 48th annual ACM Awards on April 7th. The star studded show begins at 8:00 p.m. on CBS.
