All awards were decided using sales and radio airplay numbers, so there were few surprises for artists. Still, many fans might have been shocked to see Kip Moore‘s hard-earned Breakthrough Artist win. And others may have been surprised Aldean’s ‘Old Boots, New Dirt’ was left out of the Album category, despite being the only Platinum country album of 2014. It’s likely it missed the deadline for 2014.
