Mitchell Tenpenny is still on cloud nine over his first big industry award nomination for New Male Artist of the Year at next month's Academy of Country Music Awards. His fellow nominees in the category include Jimmie Allen, Jordan Davis, Luke Combs and Michael Ray, and as Mitchell tells us, he's honored to be mentioned alongside these guys. “Honestly, it's one of the best feelings in the world to be nominated for an ACM award. I honestly never thought that would happen and I was so surprised just driving down the road hearing it on the radio and just a bunch of dreams coming true all at once. I'm just very grateful and humbled to be part of all the new artists on that list. I'm still blown away and it hasn't really hit me yet.”

The ACM Awards will air live from Las Vegas on Sunday, April 7th on CBS at 8 p.m. ET.
