Tenille Townes and Riley Green took home the crowns for Best New Artists of the Year at the 55th Academy of Country Music Awards. The awards were announced by Keith Urban over Zoom, and the two musicians won New Female and New Male Artist of the Year, respectively.
Townes and Green will perform at the awards ceremony on Sept. 16. It was rescheduled from the initial April date, but will still be taking place in person across various Nashville music venues.
