Early 2017 ACM Awards Winners Include Brothers Osborne, Maren Morris + Jon Pardi
Brothers Osborne, Maren Morris and Jon Pardi will head to Las Vegas for the 2017 ACM Awards already winners. On Tuesday morning (March 14), the ACM named Brothers Osborne New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year, also awarding Morris with New Female Vocalist of the Year and Pardi as the New Male Vocalist of the Year.
Brothers TJ and John Osborne were evidently surprised by the nod, writing “Holy s–t!!!” on Twitter before congratulating the other winners:
