U2, Petty and Guns 'n' Roses up for Billboard Awards

Billboard  has announced the nominees for their annual music awards and it's loaded up with the biggest artists and bands in popular music.  The iconic media brand is best known for its music charts, tracking the most popular singles and albums in different genres. It also hosts events, owns a publishing firm, and oversees TV shows. 

As you might guess, the major nominees are nearly all Pop, Top 40 and Country acts as usual. However, I did some digging and managed to find some artists that we actually rock here on WZLX included in the list. 

Best Duo/Group:   U2

Top Touring Artist and Top Rock Tour : Guns N’ Roses and U2

Top Rock Artist:  Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers

Top Soundtrack :  Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2: Awesome Mix Vol. 2 Which features: E.L.O., Sweet, Fleetwood Mac, George Harrison and Cheap Trick

Top Rock Album:  U2, Songs of Experience

Billboard Music Awards nominees are based on key fan interactions with music, including album and digital song sales, streaming, radio airplay, touring and social engagement. The winners will be announced on Sunday, May 20th on NBC. You can click HERE to see a complete list of nominees.
