Josh Turner ‘Nervous’ About American Country Awards

Josh Turner is up for a handful of awards at the inaugural American Country Music Awards, including Album of the Year for ‘Haywire,’ as well as Single and Music Video of the Year for his four-week No. 1 song, ‘Why Don’t We Just Dance.’ While he is thrilled with the amount of nominations he has received, he has been a bit curious to find out more about this new awards show.

“Don’t take this the wrong way, but I’ve been wondering about this awards show, because I’ve managed to have a successful career without winning an award and sometimes even getting nominations thus far,” Josh told The Boot. “I’m here with five nominations and that’s never happened before, so I’m getting a little nervous. I don’t know what that’s about. I’m thankful for those nominations, and I know the fans have been responsible for that in a huge way … It’s just fun to be able to go on there and play a part in it.”

Besides his contribution on the musical side of things, he may also have a hand in helping himself to an award. “I’ve been online voting for myself,” Josh laughs. “I’m not ashamed to tell you that.”

The American Country Awards, hosted by Trace Adkins, will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas tonight (December 6) at 8:00 PM ET on FOX.
