Sam Hunt Reacts To ACM Awards New Artist of the Year Nod

(Radio.com) After Sam Hunt's success with his single "Leave the Night On," he released his debut album Montevallo as well as headlined his first tour, the Lipstick Graffiti Tour. As his current single "Take Your Time" climbs up the charts, he is also honored with his first ACM Awards nomination for the fan voted New Artist of the Year.

"It's such a big deal," Hunt tells Radio.com of his nomination. "It's such a morale boost for the team and everyone who has been working so hard to progress this whole project and everything that we're doing. Not that we're down and out or anything, we've had so many really cool things over the last several months."

Hunt added how great it was to get an endorsement from the ACMs and the fans that voted. While he's had what he calls "little victories" to celebrate throughout the year, he said the ACMs is something he's really excited to be a part of.

"I feel like we are very new to this world and we have a long way to go and definitely still have to prove our being worthy of belonging," he says humbly. Read more here.
