Winning an American Music Award is a huge honor and sometimes viewers end up asking themselves, “What makes a band a sensation? What’s so special about them?”
This year, recently announced Buffalo Chip performers, Florida Georgia Line, have been nominated to win four American Music Awards: New Artist of the Year, Single of the Year, Favorite Country Band and Favorite Country Album. Not only that, the duo will take center stage to perform at the prestigious event.
So why is all this significant for Florida Georgia Line? Because, unlike other music awards shows, the AMAs lets fans decide who the winner should be. Nominations are determined by album sales, amount of airplay, activity on social networks and video viewing. Then after nominees are announced, fans can go online to cast votes for their favorites.
