Kane Brown Is The Most-Nominated Country Artist For The American Music Awards

The nominees for the American Music Awards were just announced. I don’t watch this awards show. Kane Brown leads the way with three nominations. You may ask, how are these nominees picked exactly?

Well, the AMA’s vague criteria for this year’s noms are based on key fan interactions (whatever that means), album and digital song sales, radio airplay, streaming, social activity (WHAT?) and touring.
