one direction

One Direction returns for its second year to headline the Billboard Hollywood Party as part of ABC’s telecast of “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2016.” The group will perform three songs throughout the show during the bi-coastal celebration. They join previously announced performer Carrie Underwood, who will be performing for over 1 million fans in Times Square, and millions more on TV, moments before the ball drops. With over 38 performances and 5 ½ hours of music, America’s biggest celebration of the year will take place on THURSDAY, DECEMBER 31 beginning at 8 p.m. ET/PT on the ABC Television Network.

“It’s been an incredible year for us and we can’t wait to ring in the New Year with all our fans on New Year’s Rockin’ Eve,” said One Direction. “It’s an honor to be back at the Billboard Hollywood Party for our second year.”

The show will include hours of special performances and reports on New Year’s celebrations from around the globe. Ryan Seacrest will host and lead the traditional countdown to midnight from Times Square in New York City as he has for the last 10 years with live reporting from actress and comedian Jenny McCarthy.  Popstar Fergie will oversee the festivities at the Billboard Hollywood Party in Los Angeles.

One Direction — composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson — formed in 2010 on the U.K.’s award-winning TV talent show “The X Factor.” The group’s debut single, “What Makes You Beautiful,” was released in September 2011 and went straight to #1 in the U.K. and top five in the U.S. on the Billboard Hot 100. The group’s first album, “Up All Night,” following suit, topping the Billboard 200 album chart. The release of their second album, “Take Me Home,” took One Direction to No. 1 in 37 countries. Their third album, “Midnight Memories,” was announced as the biggest selling album globally of 2013. One Direction’s fourth No. 1 studio album, “FOUR” featured hit singles “Steal My Girl” and “Night Changes.” With “Four,” One Direction made Billboard history as the only group in the 59-year history of the chart to see their first four albums debut at number one. The band has sold more than 65 million records worldwide, achieved a total of 137 number ones, and is the recipient of five Billboard Music Awards, four MTV Video Music Awards and five American Music Awards, among others. They have a massive 117 million combined Twitter followers and 38 million Facebook fans. One Direction surprised fans in July 2015 with the release of their single “Drag Me Down,” which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and previewed the band’s fifth studio album ‘MADE IN THE A.M.,’ which was release on Nov. 13, 2015. When Fellow album track “Perfect” entered the Hot 1-00 at No. 10 earlier this month, it marked One Direction’s fifth top 10 debut, pushing them past the Beatles for most top 10 debuts in the chart’s 57-year history.

“Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2016” is produced by dick clark productions with Ryan Seacrest, Allen Shapiro and Mike Mahan serving as executive producers and Barry Adelman and Mark Bracco are co-executive producers. Larry Klein is producer.

With a six-decade career and 200 plus albums, this iconic Texan is the creative genius behind the historic recordings of “Crazy,” “Red Headed Stranger” and “Stardust.” Willie Nelson has earned every conceivable award as a musician and amassed reputable credentials as an author, actor and activist. Released May of 2012, Heroes, his first album for Legacy Recordings, showcased new songs and deep country classics. The album spent five weeks at No. 1 on the Americana Radio Chart. Later that year he launched his book, “Roll Me Up And Smoke Me When I Die,” which landed in the Top 10 on The New York Times’ best-seller list. A road journal written in his inimitable, homespun voice, the book is a deeply personal look into the heart and soul of a unique man and one of the greatest artists of our time. In 2013, Nelson’s albums included April’s Let’s Face The Music And Dance,  an album of deep pop country repertoire classics performed with transformative patented ease by Nelson and Family, his long-time touring and recording ensemble; and October’s To All The Girls…, which features 18 duets with music’s top female singers including Dolly Parton, Mavis Staples, Sheryl Crow, Loretta Lynn, Wynonna Judd, Rosanne Cash, Alison Krauss, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Emmylou Harris, Norah Jones and Shelby Lynne.

Luke Bryan – Since the debut of his first album in 2007, Luke Bryan has placed 14 singles at #1 and sold nearly 8 million albums with 30 million digital tracks from his five studio albums. He has been named Entertainer of the Year by both the Academy of Country Music (twice) and the Country Music Association. Bryan’s recent album Kill The Lights recently debuted at #1 on both the Billboard Top 200 and Top Country Albums charts. This is Bryan’s third consecutive album to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200. Kill The Lights is the third-largest-selling album debut in 2015 at the time of its release, after R&B / hip hop releases from Drake and Kendrick Lamar. Kill The Lights is also the highest country album debut in the last two years, since Bryan’s Crash My Party debuted at #1 in August 2013.

Karen Fairchild

Karen Fairchild (Little Big Town) – GRAMMY Award-winning country super group Little Big Town, comprised of Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet and Jimi Westbrook, is one of country music’s most iconic foursomes. The multi-Platinum-selling band is currently the reigning ACM and CMA (3x) Vocal Group of the Year, and they are the most recent inductees into the famed Grand Ole Opry. Little Big Town is responsible for some of the format’s biggest hits including “Day Drinking,” “Pontoon,” “Little White Church,” “Boondocks” and their most recent record-breaking smash, “Girl Crush.” Little Big Town is now out on the PAIN KILLER TOUR in support of their latest Capitol Nashville release, Pain Killer. For more information, visit www.LittleBigTown.com.

Charlie Puth

Charlie Puth – Charlie Puth has fast become a worldwide star thanks to the international smash hit, “See You Again,” by Wiz Khalifa (Feat. Charlie Puth). The 4x RIAA platinum certified track, which was co-written and co-produced by Puth, is featured on Atlantic Records’ FURIOUS 7: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK. It has entered the history books as one of the decade’s biggest singles, topped Billboard’s “Hot 100” for a stunning 12 weeks, hit No. 1 on the iTunes Store’s “Top Songs” chart in a remarkable 101 countries, and shattered Spotify records by becoming the most streamed track ever in a single day (with 3.18 million global streams on April 8th alone) and in a single week (a stunning 21.9 million worldwide streams). Puth is also seeing huge success with his hit single “Marvin Gaye” feat. Meghan Trainor, which is featured on his upcoming debut album NINE TRACK MIND along with current single “One Call Away.” As if that weren’t enough, Puth recently teamed up with Lil Wayne for “Nothing But Trouble,” the new single from Big Beat Records’ hugely anticipated soundtrack for 808, the landmark documentary chronicling the incredible story of the influential Roland TR-808 drum machine. A Berklee College of Music graduate, Puth has found himself among modern pop’s most in-demand co-writers and producers – recent credits include two tracks on Jason Derulo’s acclaimed new album Everything Is 4, the R&B chart-topping single “Slow Motion” by Atlantic’s own Trey Songz, and further collaborations not yet announced.

meghan

Meghan Trainor – The Nantucket-born pop singer and songwriter earned superstar status in 2014 the old-fashioned way—with infectious, inimitable, and inescapable music. Her debut single “All About That Bass” went 9-times RIAA platinum, eventually received two Grammy® Award nominations, won Billboard Music Awards for “Top Hot 100 Song” and “Top Digital Song,” held #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for eight weeks, and received over 1 billion YouTube/VEVO views in less than a year. However, she didn’t stop there. Her full-length debut, TITLE [Epic Records] crashed the Billboard Top 200 at #1 in early 2015 and broke records as the “biggest-selling debut for a female artist’s first full-length album in more than five years” and “the biggest-selling debut for a solo artist’s first full-length in more than three years.” The critically acclaimed album also produced the double platinum hits “Lips Are Movin” and “Dear Future Husband” and platinum “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” featuring John Legend.  Meghan sold out every date of her first national tour and went on to pack venues during Summer 2015’s THE MTRAIN TOUR. However, this star has only just started to shine, and you’ll be hearing more about her soon.

To ring in the New Year, music superstar Carrie Underwood will headline the evening with a performance of her hit songs for over 1 million fans in Times Square moments before the ball drops, live on ABC’s telecast of “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2016.” The ten-time Billboard Music Award winner and eight-time American Music Award winner has spent 38 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and recently celebrated the release of her fifth studio album, “Storyteller.” America’s biggest celebration of the year will take place live from Times Square on THURSDAY, DECEMBER 31 beginning at 8 p.m. ET/PT on the ABC Television Network.

“There’s nowhere else I’d rather be than New York’s Times Square, one of the most magical places in the world, to ring in the New Year,” said Underwood.  “It’s going to be a memorable night, and I can’t wait to celebrate with the world!”

“The first time I heard Carrie sing, I knew she would be a superstar, and each year she continues to dominate the charts,” said host and executive producer Ryan Seacrest. “I can’t wait to see her rock Times Square and ring in 2016 as our headliner.”

The bi-coastal celebration will include hours of special performances and reports on New Year’s celebrations from around the globe, and Ryan Seacrest will lead the traditional countdown to midnight from Times Square in New York City as he has for the last 10 years.

In addition to Underwood’s performance, actress and comedian Jenny McCarthy will report live from Times Square while popstar Fergie returns to host the Billboard Hollywood Party.

Carrie Underwood emerged from the promise of her 2005 American Idol win to become a true multi-format, multi-media superstar, spanning achievements in music, television, and film.  A seven-time GRAMMY® Award winner, she has amassed nearly 100 major honors, sold 58 million records worldwide, and recorded 21 #1 singles, 11 of which she co-wrote.  The first female artist to be twice named the Academy of Country Music’s Entertainer of the Year, Underwood was recognized as Pollstar’s top female country touring artist for her headlining tours in 2008, 2010, and 2012.  Her four studio albums, Some HeartsCarnival RidePlay On, and Blown Away – each certified multi-Platinum or Platinum, and each an American Music Awards winner as Country Album of the Year – tallied 38 weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with songs that have been streamed more than 1.5 billion times worldwide.  In 2013, she starred as Maria von Trapp in NBC’s three-hour holiday blockbuster, the Emmy®-winning The Sound of Music Live!, whose airings attracted 44 million viewers.  In late 2014, the Grand Ole Opry member released her first hits collection, Greatest Hits: Decade #1.  Celebrating her first 10 years of music, the 25 songs included two new hits co-written by Underwood: the Platinum-certified, GRAMMY-winning “Something in the Water,” as well as the #1 smash “Little Toy Guns.”  In September of 2015, she began her third season as the voice of primetime television’s #1 program, Sunday Night Football, and on November 4, she’ll return for an eighth consecutive year as co-host of the CMA Awards.  Underwood is at radio now with her record-breaking single “Smoke Break,” the first single released from her fifth studio album, Storyteller, out worldwide now.

Multi-platinum recording artist Fergie is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on her highly anticipated sophomore album scheduled for release early next year. The new album is the follow up to her to her 2006 solo album The Dutchess, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 and spent 94 weeks on the chart.  The album went on to sell 6.2 million copies and 28.5 million tracks worldwide and spawned three No. 1 hits on the Hot 100: “London Bridge,” “Glamorous,” and “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” as well as the Top 5 singles “Fergalicious” and “Clumsy”.   Since The Dutchess’ release, Fergie has also released two monster multi-Platinum albums, The E.N.D. and The Beginning, with The Black Eyed Peas– with whom she has sold 31 million albums and 58 million singles worldwide. The Black Eyed Peas’ videos have been viewed over 2 billion times on their YouTube channel. Last year, Fergie released the single, ““L.A.Love (la la)”which went on to sell nearly 2 million copies worldwide. In 2013, Fergie released  the platinum selling song “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody,” which appeared on the platinum soundtrack to the 2013 film The Great Gatsby.

Hailing from a small town in the western suburbs of Sydney, Australia, 5 Seconds of Summer blazed onto the scene and the charts, with their self-titled debut album entering the Billboard 200 at No. 1, selling 260,000 units in the U.S. in its first week of release, marking the biggest debut for a new act in 2014.

Multi-platinum singer and actress Selena Gomez redefines her role as a pop artist on her new album Revival which recently debuted at #1 on Billboard’s album chart.  Powerful and passionately charged, thrilling and sophisticated, Revival has also earned Gomez a host of rave reviews. Entertainment Weekly called it “one of fall’s sleekest albums” and “as fresh and forward-thinking as the music of indie darlings Tove Lo and FKA Twigs,” while Rolling Stone raved “this is the sound of a newly empowered pop artist growing into her strengths like never before.” USA Today noted that “Gomez is bound to get at least a few skeptics off of Instagram and onto the dance floor” with her “cool, groovy and electro-savvy” album. “Gomez arrives with a pop vengeance throughout the record, as ear-sucking hooks and telling lyrics lay the groundwork for ’80s-infused dance riffs and head-rushing genre-hopping that saturates all 14 tracks,” raved Complex. The first single from Revival, “Good For You” featuring A$AP Rock is Gomez’s biggest hit to date.  It is her fastest-ever platinum seller and spent three consecutive weeks at #1 at Top 40 radio.  Revival  marks the latest chapter in a career that’s brought Gomez from starring on television at age 15 to taking a central role in Harmony Korine’s 2012 cult classic “Spring Breakers” — all while selling more than 22 million singles worldwide. Gomez announced that she will embark on her worldwide “Revival Tour” in 2016. The first leg will find Gomez traveling to 41 cities across the United States and Canada. The tour kicks off in Las Vegas on May 6th at Mandalay Bay and hits major markets including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Dallas, Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, and more.

 

 Carrie Underwood 7
Carrie Underwood emerged from the promise of her 2005 American Idol win to become a true multi-format, multi-media superstar, spanning achievements in music, television and film.  A seven-time GRAMMY® Award winner, she has amassed nearly 100 major honors, sold 58 million records worldwide, and recorded 21 #1 singles, 11 of which she co-wrote.  The first female artist to be twice named the Academy of Country Music’s Entertainer of the Year, Underwood was recognized as Pollstar’s top female country touring artist for her headlining tours in 2008, 2010, and 2012.  Her four studio albums, Some HeartsCarnival RidePlay On, and Blown Away – each certified multi-Platinum or Platinum, and each an American Music Awards winner as Country Album of the Year – tallied 38 weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with songs that have been streamed more than 1.5 billion times worldwide.  In 2013, she starred as Maria von Trapp in NBC’s three-hour holiday blockbuster, the Emmy®-winning The Sound of Music Live!, whose airings attracted 44 million viewers.  In late 2014, the Grand Ole Opry member released her first hits collection, Greatest Hits: Decade #1.  Celebrating her first 10 years of music, the 25 songs included two new hits co-written by Underwood: the Platinum-certified, GRAMMY-winning “Something in the Water,” as well as the #1 smash “Little Toy Guns.”  In September of 2015, she began her third season as the voice of primetime television’s #1 program, Sunday Night Football, and on November 4, she’ll return for an eighth consecutive year as co-host of the CMA Awards.  Underwood is at radio now with her record-breaking single “Smoke Break,” the first single released from her fifth studio album, Storyteller, out worldwide on October 23, 2015.

LADY ANTEBELLUM AND HANK WILLIAMS, JR. TO PERFORM ON “AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN AWARDS”

american country countdown awards

LADY ANTEBELLUM AND HANK WILLIAMS, JR.
TO PERFORM ON “AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN AWARDS”
LIVE MONDAY, DECEMBER 15, ON FOX

Lady A and Williams Join Previously Announced Performers Jason Aldean,
Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Kelly Clarkson, Brett Eldredge,
Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood

Country trio Lady Antebellum and, in a rare television performance, country legend Hank Williams, Jr. will join previously announced performers Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Kelly Clarkson, Brett Eldredge, Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood on the inaugural AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN AWARDS, airing LIVE from Nashville’s Music City Center on Monday, Dec.15 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.

Hosted by Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard, AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN AWARDS is based on country music’s longest-running radio countdown show, “American Country Countdown with Kix Brooks,” and will honor country music’s biggest stars based on album sales and radio airplay. Presenters for the inaugural show include country artists Kix Brooks, Sara Evans, Hunter Hayes, Maddie & Tae, Scotty McCreery, Kip Moore, Thomas Rhett, Chase Rice, Cole Swindell and Chris Young. NASCAR’s Jimmie Johnson, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher and 2014 National League MVP Clayton Kershaw, actors Emily Kinney (“The Walking Dead”) and Melissa Fumero (BROOKLYN NINE-NINE) and Miss America 2015 Kira Kazantsev will also present.

The two-hour show will also honor Kenny Chesney with The Groundbreaker Award, which recognizes an artist who has consistently pushed the boundaries and is a trailblazer in the realm of concerts, musical accomplishment, creative innovation and connecting with fans across the United States. Chesney will be on hand to accept his award. Multimedia entertainer Reba will receive the first-ever NASH Icon Award, presented by Kix Brooks, which celebrates an iconic artist whose extraordinary talent has influenced generations of musicians and who has made a profound and lasting impact on country music. Kelly Clarkson and Miranda Lambert will join together to honor Reba with a special tribute performance.

Lady Antebellum recently released their fifth studio album, 747. The 11-song disc has already spawned the platinum certified, multi-week chart-topping smash hit “Bartender,” and its new single “Freestyle” is quickly climbing the charts. They have sold over 11 million albums worldwide, and have made nine trips to number one on the country radio charts. They’ve earned six Platinum singles and “Vocal Group of the Year” honors from both the CMAs and ACMs three years in a row. Lady A just wrapped their headlining TAKE ME DOWNTOWN tour, which hit 80 cities in the US and Canada over the course of the year. They delighted both fans and critics, with the Dallas Morning News declaring “Lady Antebellum shows off its warranted leap to superstardom.”

Though he began his career in the shadow of his legendary father, Hank Williams Jr. emerged as a formidable Country singer-songwriter in his own right with 1960s hits such as “It’s All Over But The Crying” and “Cajun Baby.” But things changed with the 1979 release of “Family Tradition,” where he broke the Nashville mainstream by adopting a rebel image and writing/recording in a style incorporating his Blues and Southern Rock influences. The results were staggering as 42 Top-10 hits followed, two CMA Entertainer of the Year honors, three ACM Entertainer of the Year honors, multiple Grammy nominations and a Grammy award for “There’s a Tear in My Beer,” a duet with his father using electronic merging technology. As groundbreaking as Hank Williams Jr. became, it wasn’t just his performance that people took note about, but rather his songwriting that became so notable. The driven musician penned hits songs year after year scoring 20 BMI Awards. One of the arguably most-heard Country song of modern times, the four-time Emmy award-winning “Are You Ready For Some Football?,” which was heard nationally as the theme song of ABC and ESPN’s Monday Night Football telecasts, was aired for 21 years. As the accolades kept coming, Williams sold over 55 million albums, achieving gold, platinum, and multi-platinum status along with 13 of those albums hitting the no. 1 spot on the Billboard chart. In 2008, Williams was honored with the BMI Icon Award at the 56th Annual BMI Country Awards, joining the elite group of past honorees including Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and Dolly Parton.

The AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN AWARDS is produced by dick clark productions. Allen Shapiro (CEO, dick clark productions), Mike Mahan (President, dick clark productions), Mark Bracco (Executive Vice President, Programing and Development, dick clark productions), John Dickey (Executive Vice President of Content and Programming, Cumulus), Richard Godfrey (“MTV Europe Music Awards”) and Tom Forrest (“CMT Crossroads”) are executive producers. Baz Halpin is co-executive producer.

AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN AWARDS finalists and winners, other than Breakthrough Artist of the Year, are determined based on statistics and radio airplay charts from Nov. 1, 2013-Oct. 31, 2014. The finalists for Album of the Year were based on album sales from SoundScan and the finalists for Artist of the Year were based on a combination of Mediabase airplay, digital data provided by Big Champagne and tour information from Pollstar. All other award categories were made up of those with the largest audience reach, according to Mediabase.

Tickets to the event are on sale at TheACCAwards.com/tickets.

KENNY CHESNEY TO PERFORM ON FIRST-EVER AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN AWARDS

american country countdown awards
KENNY CHESNEY TO PERFORM ON FIRST-EVER
AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN AWARDS21st Century’s Biggest Country Ticket Seller Gets “Groundbreaker Award”
for Innovation, Excellence and Expanding The Genre,
Presented by Vince Vaughn
Airing Live, Monday, December 15, on FOX

 

Kenny Chesney, the only country artist in Billboard’s Top 10 Touring Acts of the Last 25 Years, will perform on the inaugural AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN AWARDS airing live from Nashville’s Music City Center on Monday, December 15 (8:00 – 10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX. Chesney, deemed “the People’s Superstar” by The Los Angeles Times, will perform his latest single, “Til It’s Gone,” before receiving the Groundbreaker Award for innovation, excellence and expanding the country music genre. The award will be presented by actor/producer/writer Vince Vaughn.

“They told me this award recognizes taking country new places and to a lot of new people,” Chesney said. “The truth is: all I did was sing songs I’d lived – and I knew people like me had lived. Show people their lives as a desirable thing, right where they are, and do a show that says, ‘We’re all here to have the best night of the summer,’ and they’re going to respond. So when I was trying to figure out what to sing, ‘Til It’s Gone’ felt right. It’s a song about being committed to the people you love, no matter what – and that’s how I feel about every single member of the No Shoes Nation.”

“Til It’s Gone” hit Billboard’s Top 5 this week. It follows “American Kids,” his Grammy Award-nominated, two-week No. 1 from “The Big Revival,” up the charts. “The Big Revival” is Chesney’s 13th Billboard Country Album Chart No. 1 debut.

“Connecting with the fans is what drives me,” Chesney explains. “Whatever we give them, they give us back double. That inspires everything we do. When I was cutting ‘Til It’s Gone,’ even though it’s a love song between two people, I always heard it as a song to the No Shoes Nation: ‘One life, one chance, one ticket to the big dance/ You and me, hanging on, right down to the last song…’ What other song would I do for an award that’s as much the fans’ as it is for me and the guys?”

The AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN AWARDS “Groundbreaker Award” is given to an artist who has consistently pushed the boundaries of what is possible within the definitions of today’s country music. It recognizes trailblazing in the realm of concerts, musical accomplishment, creative innovation and connecting with fans across the United States. The award will be presented by actor/producer/writer Vince Vaughn.

Kenny Chesney has sold over a million tickets to each of his 11 headlining tours since 2002. An eight-time Entertainer of the Year, with four consecutive Academy of Country Music and four Country Music Association Awards, the man The Wall Street Journal crowned “The King of the Road” has also won the American Music Award’s Favorite Artist, the ACM’s Top Male Vocalist and Single of the Year (“The Good Stuff”) and the CMA’s Album of the Year (the sextuple-platinum “When The Sun Goes Down”), Video and Vocal Event Awards. With over 30 million albums sold – 7 debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums and 13 topping Billboard’s Country Album chart, his “The Big Revival” has spawned the multiple week No. 1 “American Kids,” certified Platinum, and the Top 5 and climbing “Til It’s Gone.”

AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN AWARDS is based on country music’s longest-running radio countdown show, “American Country Countdown with Kix Brooks,” and will honor country outstanding artists based on album sales and radio airplay. In addition to Chesney, country music stars Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Brett Eldredge, Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood, along with multi-platinum superstar Kelly Clarkson, are set to perform. Also, multimedia entertainer Reba will receive the first-ever NASH Icon Award, presented by Kix Brooks, which celebrates an iconic artist whose extraordinary talent has influenced generations of musicians and who has made a profound and lasting impact on country music. Kelly Clarkson and Miranda Lambert will join together to honor Reba with a special tribute performance.

AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN AWARDS finalists and winners, other than Breakthrough Artist of the Year, are determined based on statistics and radio airplay charts from Nov. 1, 2013-Oct. 31, 2014. The finalists for Album of the Year were based on album sales from SoundScan and the finalists for Artist of the Year were based on a combination of Mediabase airplay, digital data provided by Big Champagne and tour information from Pollstar. All other award categories were made up of those with the largest audience reach, according to Mediabase.
