Kelsea Ballerini Reacts to Lack of ACM Awards Nominations With One-Word Tweet That Was Later Deleted

Even More Music News - Wed, 02/20/2019 - 10:53

After being nominated in 2016, 2017 and 2018 for ACM Female Vocalist of the Year (now known as Female Artist of the Year), Kelsea Ballerini is noticeably absent from the category in 2019. In fact, Kelsea is noticeably absent from all categories in 2019.

Apparently, Kelsea had an abbreviated reaction to the news.

In a one-word tweet—which was later deleted—Kelsea simply posted: “Wow…”

You can check out a screen shot of the tweet below.

The Female Artist of the Year category takes into account factors such as “success at radio, sales of pre-recorded music, success in digital media, live concert ticket sales and vocal performances.”

Based on the aforementioned criteria, a strong case can be made that Kelsea should have been a shoo-in.
