EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - For the past two weeks, country music lovers around the world have been able to participate in voting for the winners of the 49th Academy of Country Music Awards, which will be televised on Sunday, April 6.
Among those nominated is Wood County's own Kacey Musgraves, 2006 graduate of Mineola High School and recent winner of two Grammy awards. Kacey is giving us yet another reason to be Proud of East Texas, as she is nominated for the 2014 ACM New Artist of the Year.
You have just under 24 hours to show your pride by voting for Kacey - she is the lone female in a field of eight finalists. Your votes will narrow the field down to three. The final three will be determined by a combination of fan voting and ACM member voting.
If you would like to participate in voting, giving a virtual thumbs up to Kacey and to East Texas music in general, head over to GACTV.com to cast your vote by 2:00 p.m. CST Tuesday.
