Country Artists Get A Lot of Love From People’s Choice Awards

The first round of nominations for the People’s Choice Awards are out as of yesterday afternoon and country music artists are definitely holding their own against pop artists. This is a strictly fan voted award show so make sure to cast your vote!

There are 12 nominations for each category. Three out of the twelve up for   ‘Favorite Male Artist‘ are country boys. Blake Shelton, Keith Urban, and Kenny Chesney all made the cut, which is huge consider just a couple years ago country artists were barley prevalent at the People’s Choice Awards.

Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift made this nomination list for ‘Favorite Female Artist‘ and Blake Shelton, Eric Church and Lady Antebellum are all up for ‘Favorite Album of the Year‘.

The nominations for ‘Favorite Tour Headliner‘ were also announced yesterday and Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift, Rascal Flatts, and Sugarland all landed nods – that’s almost half the category being represented by country music!

The only other nomination category that was announced yesterday was ‘Favorite Country Artist‘.

Make sure to go online and vote for your favorites, and do it now because voting closes this Friday. The 38th annual People’s Choice Awards will air live on CBS January 11th.
