This morning during a digital conference, the ACM Award nominations were announced.  Everyone at WYRK is excited to be nominated for station of the year!  Congrats to our Taste of Country concert stars Eric Church and Eli Young Band for their nominations this morning.  I was very surprised to see that Keith Urban wasn't nominated for male vocalist or Entertainer of the year.  Chris Young gets his first ever nomination in the male vocalist category.  What do you think of this year's nominations?
