Awards For Country Fest 2016 Artists Are Piling Up
With a superstar lineup like the one we’ve got planned for you for the 30th anniversary, it should come as no surprise that awards for Country Fest 2016 artists are pouring in.
The entertainer that needs no introduction, Kenny Chesney, is proving once again that his talent for singing and songwriting is amplified by his unforgettable live performances. Chesney recently won the 2015 Billboard Touring Award.
“Over a year in the making, Kenny Chesney’s Big Revival 2015 was a tour designed to get him back to the fans in a big way after spending 2014 focusing on music. When the Billboard Touring Awards were given out at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City, Kenny received his eighth Billboard Top Package Award.” (kennychesney.com)
Just announced this week, Carrie Underwood’s “Greatest Hits: Decade #1” album went platinum.
“Upon release, Underwood’s Greatest Hits: Decade #1 debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with first-week sales of 94,000 according to Nielsen Music, becoming the best-selling debut for a hits collection by an artist in any genre of music in more than six years. The album would go on to become the best-selling hits collection of 2015, according to Billboard.” (carrieunderwood.com)
Meanwhile, Old Dominion is still riding the high of the group’s first No. 1 hit, “Break Up With Him.”
“The five songwriters that make-up Old Dominion have together racked up FIVE No. 1 records at Country Radio for artists Dierks Bentley, Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton, Tyler Farr and The Band Perry, but what makes “Break Up With Him” that much more special is that it’s the first song that Old Dominion has written together collectively as a group — Matthew Ramsey, Trevor Rosen, Brad Tursi, Geoff Sprung, and Whit Sellers all sharing writer credits.” (forthecountryrecord.com)
