Husband and wife duo Joey + Rory will be looking to double their one award win at last year’s Academy of Country Music Awards with another triumph this year.
Nominated for Top Vocal Duo, Last.fm Trends looks at the couple’s chances of becoming victorious again for the second consecutive year.
With just 61,876 scrobbles, Joey + Rory are one of the lesser known acts nominated at this year’s awards. They did, however, burst onto the scene in style last year – picking up the award for Top New Vocal Duo.
They continued their momentum with the release of their second studio album in September of last year. The imaginatively titled Album Number Two has picked up 4,176 scrobbles since its release, a far cry from the scrobble counts of their rival nominees.
Sugarland‘s 2010 album The Incredible Machine has been scrobbled 110,074 times whilst Steel Magnolia‘s debut self-titled release has been scrobbled 19,978 times, despite being released in January of this year.
