I found this at countrystars.com but haven't been able to access the ACM website to find out in what categories Garth is nominated. We'll have to wait until mid-March to see if he makes the final five. The awards show is scheduled for May 21 on CBS.

I think he'll make the final cut in all 4 categories. They HAVE to recognize the success of Scarecrow!

Congratulations and good luck, Garth!

Now I just hope he goes to the awards show. I'll be having serious withdrawals by then and I'll need to see him bad!
