And then there were three ... The eight semi-finalists for ACM New Artist of the Year have now been narrowed down to three finalists: Brantley Gilbert, Hunter Hayes and Scotty McCreery.

The three guys who made it in the coveted category were determined by both ACM members and online fan voting. It's now up to you again to help determine who wins. Cast your vote for Brantley, Hunter or Scotty at VoteACM.com starting March 19. Voting ends April 1, just before the live broadcast begins.

The ACM Awards air live from Las Vegas, April 1 on CBS. The show will be co-hosted once again by dynamic duo Reba and Blake Shelton.
