The Academy of Country Music Awards take place this Sunday in Las Vegas, and Thomas Rhett is over the moon about being nominated for Song of the Year (for “Die a Happy Man”) and for Male Vocalist of the Year.
“To be nominated for Song of the Year, first of all, it’s just been nuts over the last year to have nominated for either Single or Song in pretty much every awards show for ‘Die a Happy Man,'” Thomas says in a statement from his label. “And so, to get nominated at the ACM for that is a very, very incredible feat, because there are so many songs that have been released this year that are so good. Just to be in that category is amazing.

“And the one that really took me by surprise was Male Vocalist! You know, just being in that category. I mean, everybody knows that [Chris] Stapleton is forever the Male Vocalist of the Year. And so, just to be in that category with a voice like that is mind blowing. So you know that was a HUGE….took me by surprise, but very, very honored to be in that category.”
