Unlike other award shows, the People’s Choice Country Awards will also recognize the Best Concert Tour of 2023, The Crossover Song of 2023 and The Social Country Star of 2023.
The nominees for the first-ever category award are: Ashley McBryde, Carly Pearce, Carrie Underwood , Elle King, Kelsea Ballerini, Lainey Wilson, Megan Moroney and Miranda Lambert.
