[VIDEO] Jimmie Allen + Gabby Barrett Just Won Their First ACM Awards!

The 56th Annual ACM Awards are happening next weekend on Sunday, April 18th on CBS and one of my favorite things to look forward to is who wins new female artists of the year and new male artist of the year.

I love these categories because they're announced leading up to the show because the artists will be asked to perform during the show to celebrate!

I'm so happy for this years winners!! If you missed it, Gabby Barrett took home New Female Artist of the Year and Jimmie Allen took home New Male Artists of the Year.

Watch below to see their reactions!
