Randy Nominated for 2015 CMA Award

As revealed this morning on Good Morning America, Randy's "Like A Cowboy" is nominated for CMA Song of the Year. Co-written by Randy with friend Brice Long, this is Randy's third CMA nomination and first ever in the Song of the Year category.

“I’m just so honored and humbled.  As an artist you don’t get into this for anything except your love for music, so to get to this point is kinda surreal. When you give it everything you’ve got and make sacrifices, to be recognized by fans, the industry, and fellow artists, it really means the world.  I grew up watching the CMA’s and looking forward to those performances every year.  It was the Super Bowl of music in a way for me.  So I feel blessed to be at this point."

“Song of the Year honors the craft of songwriting which is the foundation of what we do as country artist, so really special to be recognized.  This song means a lot to me personally.  It’s one of a my favorite songs that I have ever written, its a song that I'm proud of, and made a huge impact on the live show.  And I owe that to country radio for getting it out there for fans to hear."

The 2015 CMA Awards will broadcast live on ABC on November 4!
