Luke is a Double Winner at 2010 ACM Awards!
Luke wrapped Sunday night’s 45th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards as a two-time winner. Luke went into the evening, held at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, already named as a winner as the "Top New Solo Vocalist" through earlier voting by fans at gactv.com and was also crowned as "Top New Artist" during the CBS broadcast.The Top New Artist category was voted on by a combination of professional ACM members and fans.
“My whole family came along to Vegas to see me perform on the show and to be my lucky charms,” shared Luke. “We’ve worked hard for several years to get to this point and I’m glad for the wait, it tastes sweeter.”
The Las Vegas after-show celebration lasted until the wee hours of Tuesday morning. The excitement started with a post ACM show all-star jam performance, a visit to the Capitol Nashville party where he and label-mate Charles Kelley of Lady Antebellum, along with Capitol Nashville head Mike Dungan, ended up in the hotel pool. And since Luke was having a winning night, he spent a little time gambling at the dice tables.
