Winner: Hunter Hayes
Every year, there’s at least one nominee that makes people say “WTF?” While Hayes isn’t as shocking as ultimate winner Esperanza Spaulding a few years ago, this country cutie’s inclusion in the best new artist category was a little surprising. However, since he snagged best new artist at the Country Music Awards last month, it’s not out of the blue.
