The ACM Nominations were announced this past week and Chase Rice received some great news. Chase has been nominated for Best New Male Artist. The ACM Awards airs live from Las Vegas on April 3rd on CBs and Chase will be on hand, but no word on if he's performing yet.

And while we're talking about him, Chase is a good home North Carolina Boy so naturally you would think he'd be cheering on the Carolina Panthers this Super Bowl weekend.
