PERFORMERS

 

Brad Paisley has won 14 Academy of Country Music Awards, including Male Vocalist of the Year a record-setting five consecutive times, and wins in the Album of the Year, Video of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year categories.  His eighth studio album, Wheelhouse, is scheduled to be released April 9, and the debut single “Southern Comfort Zone” recently became his 21st #1 hit and “Beat This Summer” is his current single.  Paisley’s highly anticipated “Beat This Summer Tour presented by Cracker Barrel Old Country Store®” kicks off May 9 in St. Louis, Missouri and will hit more than 29 cities in the United States and Canada during the summer months.

 

Dierks Bentley is an ACM Award-winning singer/songwriter that has forged his own brand of country music combining classic country songwriting, influences of bluegrass instrumentation and the energy of rock & roll. Bentley’s sixth studio album Home, released in 2012, debuted at #1 and has spawned 3 chart-toppings hits, marking 10 career #1 songs as a singer and songwriter.  He is currently on the “Locked & Reloaded Tour” with longtime friend Miranda Lambert.  On April 6, Bentley will also headline the ACM Party for a Cause Festival, a 2-day outdoor music festival during “The Week Vegas Goes Country®.”

Hunter Hayes has six ACM nominations, including two in the Song of the Year category as the artist and composer, as well as in the Single Record of the Year category as the artist and producer for “Wanted.”  He rounds out his nominations with New Male Vocalist of the Year and Video of the Year for “Wanted.”  Hunter’s GRAMMY® nominated self-titled debut album has generated three smash hits, including his current single, “Somebody’s Heartbreak,” which has already entered the Top 5 and is certified Gold, as well as his near Triple Platinum-selling #1 single “Wanted.”  Hunter Hayes is a celebrated musician, songwriter and performer who currently is on the “Blown Away Tour” with Carrie Underwood.

Brantley Gilbert has two Academy of Country Music Award nominations this year – New Artist of the Year and New Male Vocalist of the Year, and his unique sound of Country-Rock-Soul has turned him into one of country’s hottest newcomers.  Gilbert’s sophomore project, the Gold-certified Halfway to Heaven Deluxe debuted at #2 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and produced two Gold #1 singles, “Country Must Be Country Wide” and “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do.”  As a celebrated songwriter, he has also penned three #1 hits – “My Kinda Party,” “Dirt Road Anthem,” and “Country Must Be Country Wide.”  Gilbert is currently playing to sold-out arenas in the U.K. and North America on his “Hell on Wheels Tour.”

 

Jana Kramer is the Academy of Country Music Award’s New Female Vocalist of the Year and is also nominated for New Artist of the Year as one of the freshest young voices in country music today.  Kramer, whose self-titled album was named “Best of 2012” by Billboard and iTunes, has impressively sold over a million tracks, including more than 100,000 of the new single “Whiskey” and over a half million of “Why Ya Wanna.”  In addition to her debut album premiering at #5, the success of “Why Ya Wanna” also earned Kramer the title of highest charting debut single from a new female artist since 2006 (previously held by Taylor Swift), as well as making her one of the fastest rising debut artists of 2012.  She will be on the road with Darius Rucker’s “True Believers Tour” in May, and will join the North American “Ten Times Crazier Tour” with Blake Shelton and Easton Corbin on July 19 in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

 

Florida Georgia Line has three Academy of Country Music Award nominations this year – New Artist of the Year, New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year and Vocal Duo of the Year.  Since releasing the top-selling, multi-week #1 debut single “Cruise,” which has since hit Double Platinum, this hot country duo has been quickly garnering buzz among fans, media and superstars alike.  Their debut album Here’s to the Good Times earned the highest debut album sales of 2012 for a new country artist, and they’re currently traveling North America with Luke Bryan on his “Dirt Road Diaries Tour.”

 

LL Cool J is an entertainment icon who has found great success crossing into multiple mediums.  A two-time GRAMMY® Award winner, recording artist, talented actor, author, NAACP Image Award winner, entrepreneur and philanthropist, LL continues to display his wide range of talents with every project.  He currently stars in the CBS hit primetime drama series, “NCIS: LOS ANGELES,” and continuing his musical expedition three decades after he first released music, LL is proudly prepping to release his latest project, Authentic.

 

The ACM Fan Jam is part of THE ACM EXPERIENCE, which takes place in conjunction with “The Week Vegas Goes Country®,” and is a family-friendly country music lifestyle event that includes the free-to-the-public ACM Expo and the ACM Party for a Cause Festival to be held April-5-April 7, 2013 at The Orleans Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.  Room and ticket packages are available by calling The Orleans Hotel and Casino at 800-675-3267 or visiting www.BoydGaming.com/ACMExperience.
