What a year for Jamie Grace! It all started with a Grammy nomination, next she won the 2012 Dove Award for New Artists of the Year and this last week she was listed as a finalist for the Billboard Music Awards! Oh yeah, Jamie also won the top category at T2 this last year – Breakout Star of 2011.
Megan & Liz remain at #1 in the iHeartRadio Rising Star contest. Despite slipping a few spots last week, they’ve been the dominant act for 18 days now. However, we still don’t know if the contest is based on cumulative votes or a 24 hour voting cycle that begins prior to each round? I’ve made multiple calls to Clear Channel PR and they have yet to provide the actual rules for this contest…. so there’s a little fuel for you conspiracy theorists. Vote for your favorites at Macys/iHeart.com/Macys/.
