Singer-songwriter Tenille Arts found it hard to believe she was an ACM Awards nominee at first, but is very excited to be nominated.

“I was totally shocked, like I sat there until the next nomination was announced with my mouth open just like ‘Is this real? Is this actually happening right now?’ and then it started to sink in, and I was just so excited, and so grateful to be a part of the awards this year. It’s been a weird couple of years for everybody. So, I’m just very grateful, very proud of my team, and everybody that’s been a part of my career so far … this kind of feels like the launching off point for a lot of things, so I’m just really thankful and really excited to be nominated.”

The 56th Academy of Country Music Awards Show will air at 7 p.m. central time (8 p.m. eastern time) Sunday April 18th on CBS.

Listen for “Somebody Like That,” Tenille Arts’ first Top 10 single on Bloomington-Normal’s #1 Country, B104.
