Eric Church Up For Recognition In Billboard.com "Mid-Year Music Poll"
Jun. 19, 2014
(Undated) -- Eric Church is getting some attention for his efforts over the first half of the year. The country star is in the running in a couple of categories in Billboard.com's "2014 Mid-Year Music Poll." His latest CD, "The Outsiders," is among the options for Favorite Number One Billboard 200 Album in the online survey, and he's also in the running for First-Half MVP. But other country stars are getting nods as well. Miranda Lambert's "Platinum" is another contender for favorite album, while Brantley Gilbert and Lucy Hale are both up for Breakout Star. Taylor Swift makes two appearances in the poll as well. She's up for consideration for Best Style, and "Possible New Music From Taylor Swift" is among the options for Most Anticipated Music Event of 2014's Second Half.
Iggy Azalea, Beyonce, and Pharrell are among the most prominent stars in the survey. Each category also includes an "Other" write-in option. Voting is open now at Billboard.com. The 2014 Mid-Year Music Poll results will be posted in early July.
