Reigning ACM Top New Artist of the Year for 2010, Luke Bryan, hosts "ACM Showcase," an exclusive look at the "Top New" artists nominated for the 2011 Academy of Country Music Awards. The nominees for these awards are some of the most talented young performers in country music today. Their peers have put them in the running for the ACM Top New Artist honors, but the fans help make the final decision on who takes a trophy home.
