The 2012 ACM Awards nominees for New Artist of the Year were revealed today, making three country men very happy. Merle Haggard also found reason to be happy, as he returns to the road following a battle with pneumonia, and Jason Aldean will be working hard to be happy with his upcoming 2012 Grammys performance. These are just a few of the top country music news stories found in today’s Daily Roundup.

We’ve included a full list of today’s country headlines, as well as a few others from around the web — like a report on which Fox television show is getting canceled after eight seasons.
