Meet Your CMA New Artist of the Year Nominees

Videos on YouTube from each nominee.

In my opinion, one of the most exciting awards presented at the annual CMA Awards is the New Artist of the Year.

These artists have just begun this crazy career in country music and to nominated out of recognition of their hard work and talent is inspiring.

CMA recently released the following videos to allow country music fans the opportunity to get to know these new artists just a little bit better. I personally enjoyed each and every one.

In this clip all of the artists reflect on how far they have come.

Nominee Jon Pardi details how he became interested in country music and how that has shaped him into the artist he is today.

Luke Combs reflects on how life has changed since his first gig that entailed selling tickets for $1 each to now being nominated for a CMA award.

Lauren Alaina details how a rough year, personally led to the career she has now. Not going to lie, this one got me teary eyed!

Brett Young explains how a baseball injury led him back to music. He also goes into detail about what he feels is important to convey as an artist.

For a band that has had quite the success as a new artist, Old Dominion states the key is to never take yourself too seriously. That is evident throughout this video. It will have you smiling throughout.
