For more than 50 years, the ACM Awards have celebrated some of the best new artists in country music. While the names and categories have changed over the years (is it Best New Artist? Most Promising Female Vocalist? Top New Vocal Duet?), the ACM's dedication to highlighting up-and-coming new artists has endured.

In 2019, Ashley McBryde, Luke Combs and Lanco all joined the ranks of ACM new artist award winners. Flip through the gallery below to learn about all of those who came before them!

The 2019 ACM Awards are set to take place in Las Vegas, Nev., on April 7 and air live on CBS beginning at 8PM ET. The ceremony will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, with Reba McEntire hosting.
