We already know that we work with the best artists in the industry, but it’s always exciting to see the artists we love to work with also recognized by their peers. We are proud to see that six of the artists we’ve partnered with recently have been nominated across 10 awards categories this year by the Academy of Country Music for the 56th annual ACM Awards.

Over the next few weeks, we will be taking a closer look at the following artists, celebrating their work, and sharing a little bit about our partnerships with them. Congratulations to all—we’ll be rooting for you on April 18th!!
