The moment High Valley heard they got nominated for an ACM Award, they knew they were in for a celebration. Part of that party just so happened to be the making of a pre-ceremony playlist for the big night.
With the 53rd Annual ACM Awards coming in hot, the brotherly duo will head out to Sin City with their fellow country colleagues for a week like none other. Even though they lost out to Midland in their nominated category, they still understand the power of recognition within the industry and appreciate all the support throughout the past year.
“You know, honestly, it kind of feels like we’ve been welcomed into the family or the club, you know? Like we are now validated or something like that. It feels cool. Not that we didn’t feel the love beforehand, but it’s just kind of like this is something that’s in writing that says High Valley has achieved this and come this far, and it’s so significant to Brad and I. It’s the ACMs for crying out loud. It’s a big deal. We’re so honored and thrilled,” Curtis Rempel of the duo said to Sounds Like Nashville of their New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year nomination.
With that in mind, they still will dress to the nines and get to experience the madness that comes with the ‘Week Vegas Goes Country’ with everyone else. In order to gear up properly, High Valley made a stacked-up playlist full of their favorite tracks to get the night started off right.
The 53rd Annual ACM Awards will broadcast live from Las Vegas on Sunday, April 15, at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
