Lucky Luke Leads ACA Noms

Oct 10, 2012 -- 2:48pm
 
Three years ago, the FOX Network created the American Country Awards (the ACA's) because, apparently, there weren't enough awards shows for the Country Music biz already (there are currently about a half dozen).  But hey, what the heck, the more the merrier, right?
 
At any rate, the nominations for the 2012 ACA's have been announced and Leesburg, Georgia native, Luke Bryan, is the frontrunner with seven nods.  Lucky 7.  Lucky Luke.
 
Now, what sets this awards extravaganza apart from the rest is that the fans decide the winner in each category and you can vote for your faves by clicking here.
 
Counrty giant Trace Atkins and the pixie-like Kristen Chenoweth will be back the the third year in a row to host the honors live from Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on Monday, December 10th at 8PM on FOX.
 
Check out the entire list of nominees below.
