Chris Young will be going into the 2022 ACM Awards as the most nominated artist.

Young has seven nominations this year, including the coveted Album of the Year as an artist and producer for Famous Friends. The title track is also up for Single of the Year. He is also nominated for Music Event of the Year and Video of the Year, sharing 3 of the nominations with Kane Brown. They released the Platinum-certified multi-week No. 1 single, which also topped the Billboard year-end Country Airplay Songs.

“Honestly, having seven nominations at the ACM Awards is just still something I can barely wrap my brain around,” he shared. “I know that it’s real because I’ve talked to everybody and my phone has blown up and everybody’s talked to me about how cool it is. But, you know, just when you get down to it, I’ve never been the most nominated artist at any award show ever. And for the very first time that it happens, for it to be the ACMs, that is something that is just incredibly special.”

The event is even more special because he gets to share it with his collaborator and friend.

“You know, being able to celebrate multiple nominations on a song like ‘Famous Friends’ with my buddy Kane Brown is just absolutely incredible. I mean, this song has really taken on a life of its own. And I know he’s sang it shows and I’ve sang it at shows and every single time that it’s one of us, or both of us together on stage somewhere. The reaction is just absolutely incredible,” he added. “So, definitely pumped to be able to celebrate these noms with him.”

The 2022 ACM Awards will take place live from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Monday, March 7, on Amazon Prime Video.

This will mark Chris Young’s second ACM Album of the Year nomination for his eighth studio album. The fourteen tracks feature some of his famous friends including Lauren Alaina and Mitchell Tenpenny. Chris Young co-wrote thirteen of the tracks and co-produced the entire record.
