ACM Male Vocalist

Jason Aldean achieved his first win in the ACM Male Vocalist of the Year category at Sunday night’s awards show in Las Vegas. Jason told reporters backstage that he was surprised, but pleased, “It’s pretty special, so it’s exciting. It was shocking, but very cool. It was something that I always hoped I would win at some point in my career, so to finally have it under my belt feels really good.” Jason also won for Vocal Event of the Year, with Luke Bryan and Eric Church, for “The Only Way I Know.” This is his second consecutive win in that category; he won last year with Kelly Clarkson for “Don’t You Wanna Stay.”
