"Don't take this the wrong way, but I've been wondering about this awards show, because I've managed to have a successful career without winning an award and sometimes even getting nominations thus far," Josh told The Boot. "I'm here with five nominations and that's never happened before, so I'm getting a little nervous. I don't know what that's about. I'm thankful for those nominations, and I know the fans have been responsible for that in a huge way ... It's just fun to be able to go on there and play a part in it."
Besides his contribution on the musical side of things, he may also have a hand in helping himself to an award. "I've been online voting for myself," Josh laughs. "I'm not ashamed to tell you that."
The American Country Awards, hosted by Trace Adkins, will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas tonight (December 6) at 8:00 PM ET on FOX.
