AAM’s Jesse Frasure received CMA nominations for Thomas Rhett’s chart-topping single “Die a Happy Man,” which he co-produced. The hit single off of Rhett’s sophomore album, Tangled Up, has been nominated for Single of the Year and Song of the Year. It also held its number one streak at the top of the Billboard Country Airplay chart for six weeks.
Greg Wells and Serban Ghenea also grabbed CMA nominations with Keith Urban’s latest album, Ripcord -- nominated for Album of the Year. The third single from the album is hit song “Wasted Time,” co-produced and co-written by Wells and mixed by Ghenea. Wells worked very closely with Urban to create a record that was “different… [but] has enough familiarity to keep you listening to it,” Clearly, the pair achieved just that as the track went on to chart at #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay Charts.
Hosted by Country superstars Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, the 50th Annual CMA Awards will air live on Wednesday, November 2nd on ABC. Make sure to at 8pm EST to support Jesse, Greg, and Serban!
