Chris Young leads youth movement at ACM Awards

Chris Young enjoys going to Las Vegas for the Academy of Country Music Awards because he loves to gamble.

While the odds maker in the country singer agrees he has "a chance" to win male vocalist of the year on Sunday, he's probably going to save his cash for the blackjack table.

That's because Kenny Chesney is among the veterans also nominated in that category. Chesney is nominated in eight others for a total of nine nominations, the most of any artist. He's likely to clean up at the ceremony, including in the male vocalist category.

The ACMs will be shown live from the MGM Grand on CBS at 8 p.m. EDT on the East Coast.
