NM scenery, actors get national attention at ACM Awards

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – New Mexico got lots of attention during the Academy of Country Music Awards.

Country music singer Eric Church performed one of his latest hit songs at the award show and behind him, clips from a series of music videos that were mostly shot in New Mexico.

Two local actors featured in the videos say the shooting locations are not the only ties to New Mexico. The cast is local too and more videos are coming.

“The entire cast is from here…to be recognized in this way it just showcases the incredible talent pool that New Mexico has,” Marya Beauvais said.

“Think they’re trying to tell the whole story of the album in a way that hasn’t been told, releasing video for a song,” Ivan Brutsche said.

CBS has been using the online videos to promote Church’s performance during Sunday night’s awards show.

The main video is called San Destino Rising.
