POLL: Who Should Win Single Record of the Year at the 2017 ACM Awards?
Several of nominees for Single Record of the Year at the 2017 ACM Awards are vying for wins in numerous categories; this specific award, however, is for the nominated works' songwriters, publishers and artists. In 2016, Thomas Rhett won with "Die a Happy Man" -- so, who will be the lucky winner in 2017?
“Blue Ain’t Your Color” gave Keith Urban yet another chance to stand on top of the country charts, and he did it with confidence. In this song, Urban about a girl who essentially is settling in her love life -- and he thinks she can do better. Miranda Lambert's "Vice," meanwhile, finds the country star owning up to her own tendency to run toward her vices for comfort.
Florida Georgia Line's first single from Dig Your Roots, “H.O.L.Y.,” is a completely different sound from the duo: It's a piano-heavy ballad, worlds away from "Cruise." But another Single Record of the Year nominee, “Humble and Kind,” sparked an entire movement, thanks to Tim McGraw's recording of the Lori McKenna-penned tune.
And finally, “My Church” launched Maren Morris to rising superstar status and earned her a gold record. Not bad for a debut single, huh?
