25 Feb ACM Most-Nominated Female Artist Cam Announced As Performer, New Single “Mayday” Earns Critical Praise
Cam continues to attract media attention and critical acclaim, as well as industry accolades, including an ACM Awards double nomination for Song of the Year, recognizing Cam as both artist and writer of her Platinum-certified #1 single, “Burning House.” Along with her previously announced four ACM nominations, Cam’s tally of six extends her lead as this year’s most-nominated female artist – all the more notable in her first year as an ACM nominee.
Cam, nominated for ACM New Female Vocalist, has just been confirmed to perform “Burning House” (up for ACM Single, Song and Video of the Year) on the 51st Academy of Country Music Awards. The show will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 3, beginning at 8:00 PM ET/delayed PT on the CBS Television Network.
Also a recent first-time GRAMMY Awards® nominee (Best Country Solo Performance for “Burning House”), Cam was a presenter on the show and documented her first GRAMMY experience in a photo diary in the current issue of People, as well as online at People.com.
Cam is new on the radio now with the follow-up to “Burning House,” the beautiful “Mayday.” Co-written by Cam and Tyler Johnson, “Mayday” has earned critical acclaim from multiple outlets:
“Cam just might be the voice of a generation. ‘Mayday’ is the song that every millennial needs to hear. It’s about finding your voice and finding the strength to be vulnerable. … We need this beautifully tragic diary entry from Cam to inspire us to find our own voice.”
– All Access – Briana Galluccio
“Cam could have played it safe with a follow-up to her first No. 1. There’s plenty of songs on Untamed that are strong and aimed for the masses. Instead she’s decided to take another risk with a vocal performance that feels just as personal as the last.”
– Taste of Country “Critic’s Pick” review – Billy Dukes
“… extremely melodic and sung with superb élan. … A hit if I’ve ever heard one.”
– MusicRow – Robert K. Oermann
With each song co-written by Cam, her Untamed album was produced by multiple GRAMMY® honoree and current Producer of the Year, Non-Classical GRAMMY winner Jeff Bhasker (Bruno Mars, Beyoncé, FUN., The Rolling Stones, Taylor Swift) and two-time Album of the Year GRAMMY nominee Tyler Johnson (Ed Sheeran, OneRepublic, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Mikky Ekko).
On tour now through February 27 with headliner Brad Paisley, Cam will hit the road beginning May 12 as a special guest on Dierks Bentley’s Somewhere on a Beach Tour.
