Zac Brown Band is riding high with a string of hit songs from their double-platinum debut "The Foundation" and a Best New Artist win at the Grammy Awards. They're also a huge act on the road with plans to co-headline stadium shows next year with Kenny Chesney.

Who Will Win?:

Reigning Vocal Group of the Year Lady Antebellum is all but assured a repeat in this category thanks to their hugely successful single and album "Need You Now."

New Artist: Luke Bryan, Easton Corbin, Jerrod Niemann, Chris Young, Zac Brown Band

Who Should Win?:

Zac Brown Band stands head and shoulders above every other act in this category. They're already nominated for Entertainer of the Year this year, so it seems they've got the New Artist trophy in the bag.
