Big congrats to Taylor Swift! The country cutie was crowned Entertainer of the Year at the 2012 ACM Awards, marking her second consecutive win of the prestigious fan-voted award. Although she was the youngest nominee in the category, going up against country vets Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley and Blake Shelton, Swift managed to get the most fan votes to win Entertainer of the Year once again.
Fresh off her win for Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2012 ACM Awards, Miranda Lambert had to switch from a celebratory mood to a much more somber tone as she readied herself to perform ‘Over You’ for the crowd gathered at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. If you’re a fan of Lambert, you already know that this song has a very personal meaning to the songstress and her husband, Blake Shelton.
After a heated battle with other up-and-coming country artists, Scotty McCreery managed to garner the most fan votes to take home the Best New Artist trophy at the 2012 ACM Awards. McCreery, who has gone on to top the country charts with his debut album and single after hit single since winning season 10 of ‘American Idol,’ was absolutely overjoyed to be crowned the Best New Artist at the ACMs, and he could hardly contain his excitement.
Miranda Lambert had some stiff competition at the 2012 ACM Awards, but that didn’t stop the fiery country songstress from taking the Album of the Year award at this year’s show in Las Vegas. Lambert won the distinction for her chart-topping 2011 album, ‘Four the Record,’ which boasts singles such as ‘Baggage Claim’ and ‘Over You.’
Congratulations, Danny Gokey! During a recent interview with FOX News — on which the ‘American Idol’ alum appeared to discuss his charity efforts through his organization Sophia’s Heart — Gokey was overjoyed while talking about his engagement to girlfriend Leyicet Peralta.
The Band Perry was just here in Bozeman with Reba, and put on an awesome show!
The Band Perry are still soaking in the success of their No. 1 hit ‘If I Die Young,’ but that doesn’t mean the trio are showing any signs of slowing down. Kimberly Perry recently caught up with Billboard for a Q&A session, and even though they’ve been busy winning CMA Awards for their chart-topping song, the vocalist said she and her brothers are in full-blown writing mode for album No. 2.
Randy Travis has premiered the video for his latest single ‘Everything and All,’ which is one of six new songs included on his most current album, ‘Anniversary Collection.’ In the video, Travis leads viewers through a whirlwind journey, as cameras travel at warp speed throughout various scenes. Plus remember you can hear Randy's new tune on XL COUNTRY!
Rascal Flatts are officially the newest members of the Grand Ole Opry! The trio was inducted into the Opry last night, Oct. 8, in a ceremony that was simultaneously celebrating the institution’s 86th birthday.
