By Markos Papadatos     Mar 10, 2013 in Entertainment
Five country songs are vying for the "Song of the Year" honor at the upcoming Academy of Country Music (ACM) awards that will be broadcast on April 7 on CBS. The award for this category goes to the songwriter.
The nominated songs are Lee Brice's "A Woman Like You," the Eli Young Band's "Even If It Breaks Your Heart," Miranda Lambert's "Over You," Eric Church's "Springsteen" and Hunter Hayes' "Wanted."
All five of these nominated acts have had a great year in music: Hunter Hayes earned a Grammy nomination for "Best Country Solo Performance" for "Wanted," the Eli Young Band's "Even if it Breaks Your Heart," co-written by Will Hoge, was the group's second consecutive No. 1 hit, Eric Church's "Springsteen" spent two weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Charts, Miranda Lambert accepted a Country Music Association (CMA) award this past November for co-writing "Over You" with Blake Shelton and Lee Brice scored his first No. 1 hit on country radio with "A Woman Like You."
The favorites to win here are Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton for penning "Over You," as well as Hunter Hayes' "Wanted." Miranda is also up for "Female Vocalist of the Year" and she secured her first "Entertainer of the Year" ACM nomination this year which helps her chances substantially for a win.
