HARDY leads ACMs with seven nominations

Thursday, April 13, 2023 – Singer and songwriter HARDY led the 58th Academy Of Country Music Awards nominations announced Thursday with seven.

HARDY was nominated for Song of the Year and Artist-Songwriter of the Year. He shared three of his nominations with fellow artist and collaborator Lainey Wilson for their song "wait in the truck."

Wilson receives the most nods for a female artist with six nominations including Female Artist of the Year. She is nominated in more categories than any other artist. Last year, Wilson won in both categories she was nominated in.

Most-awarded artist in ACM history, Miranda Lambert, receives her record-breaking 17th Female Artist of the Year nomination (passing Reba McEntire with 16), as well as four other nominations.

CD review - the mockingbird & The CROW Although much has been made of the two HARDY personality traits revealed via "the mockingbird & THE CROW" album – part country, part hard rock – the more one listens to this extensive, 17-track album, the less musical style actually seems to matter.
