I can honestly say when I co-wrote the song eight years ago it never crossed my mind that it would be nominated for Song of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards. This is the highest honor for me as a songwriter. Thank you, everyone, for voting for this song."
"People always say it is an honor to just be nominated and you know what...it is. I feel like all the years we struggled to be accepted has paid off. These nominations mean more to us than you will ever know," comments Kenny. "John and I are just two guys from humble beginnings who believed in the power of music. We wanted to spread our love of music to everyone and share our passion for cultivating new talent. Thank you so much for supporting our passion for music."
Both Rich and Big Kenny are nominated as producers for “Lost In This Moment” in the Single Record Of The Year category. Kenny is also nominated as Producer for “Lost In This Moment” in the Video Of The Year category and Rich is up for Song Of The Year for “Lost In This Moment” as songwriter.
