Posted in News on March 27, 2000

BMI songwriters and artists were the leading nominees of the 35th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, with three recording artists recognized in five categories.

After leading the ACM Awards in both 1998 and 1999 with four victories, Faith Hill vies for honors in five categories: Entertainer, Top Female Vocalist, Album (Breathe), Song and Country Video ("Breathe"). Her work as a producer for the album Breathe earned her an additional nod.
