Lil Nas X, Justin Bieber break barriers with Country Music Awards nominations

Lil Nas X and Justin Bieber have received their first-ever Academy of Country Music Awards nominations.

The ‘Sorry’ hitmaker’s country-pop collaboration, ‘10,000 Hours’, with duo Dan + Shay is in contention for Song of the Year – with Justin nominated as both the artist and songwriter – Video of the Year and Music Event of the Year. Justin took to social media to share the good news.

Maren Morris and Thomas Rhett lead the nominations with five nods apiece.

Lil Nas X’s viral country trap hit ‘Old Town Road’ is also up for Music Event of the Year. And not only is he having a great year in music, but he is also part of the mega My Calvin’s ‘DEAL WITH IT’ fashion campaign alongside Justin Bieber, Kendall Jenner, Euphoria’s Hunter Schafer, and musicians Maluma, SZA and Lay Zhang.

The new DEAL WITH IT campaign has been shot by photographer Mario Sorrenti and it is described as a celebration of “unapologetic confidence and self-love” with each celebrity chosen specifically for the campaign because of “their willingness to bare themselves to the world”.

Debuting the images on Twitter where he poses bare-chested, Lil Nas X serves up the looks.

‘The Voice’ coach Blake Shelton is also nominated for four prizes this year, including Single of the Year and Song of the Year for ‘God’s Country’.

Country Music legend, Keith Urban is set to host the America Country Music Awards, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on April 5th.
