The 2021 Billboard Music Awards finalists were announced and Gabby Barrett led the way with 9 total nominations – the most of any female artist – including all-genre nods for “Best New Artist,” “Top Selling Song,” “Top Radio Song,” “Top Collaboration,” “Top Hot 100 Song,” & “Top New Artist.” Dan + Shay earned two nominations including in the all-genre, “Top Duo/Group” category. While Morgan Wallen is a finalist in 5 categories, he will not be participating in the BBMAs and has withdrawn from consideration but that doesn’t make it any less impressive the accomplishment of his music and how fans reacted to it this year, which, in my opinion, deserves recognition.
