It seems that Christmas came a little early for Lady Antebellum‘s Dave Haywood. With only a few days to spare in 2011, the guitarist officially got engaged to girlfriend Kelli Cashiola, who is a longtime friend of his.
Scotty McCreery can now add being mocked on ‘Saturday Night Live’ to his ever-growing ‘you know you’ve made it when’ list. Singer Michael Buble appeared on the show on Saturday (Dec. 17) as the musical guest, and got a chance to show his funny side in a funny skit promoting his “new Christmas album,” ‘Michael Buble Christmas Duets,’ which features ‘The Trouble With Girls’ singer, as well as Taylor Swift and many big names in pop music.
It’s no secret that Taylor Swift is popular among the younger generation, girls especially — even the singer herself recognizes that she’s a role model for millions. In a new interview with USA Today, ‘Tattoos on This Town’ crooner Jason Aldean tips his hat to the 22-year-old songstress, praising her for the innovative way in which she has expanded country music’s audience.
LeAnn Rimes is already five songs deep into her next album, and she hopes to have it wrapped and on the shelves by the summer of 2012. In a new interview with the Tennessean, the former child star spilled all of the details of how things are coming about with the project, which she says will be more of a traditional country release than her previous works.
Taylor Swift lived out a real-life Cinderella story at Saturday night’s annual Nashville Symphony Ball. The ‘Love Story’ songstress dressed to impress in a romantic silver and blue ball gown, ready to be honored with this year’s Harmony Award — an award which is bestowed on an individual who “exemplifies the harmonious spirit of Nashville’s thriving musical community.”
Blake Shelton got a glimmer of good news yesterday after a heavy week. His father, Dick Shelton, who was taken to the hospital for pneumonia on Dec. 5, could be released as soon as Friday. The ‘God Gave Me You’ hitmaker breathed a virtual sigh of relief when he announced the potential news to his Twitter followers, saying, “Thank you all for the prayers for my dad… Hoping he gets to go home Friday.”
Blake Shelton has a funny way of saying “congratulations.” The friendly ‘Honey Bee’ hitmaker laid a kiss on Keifer Thompson after the Thompson Square husband-wife duo walked away with three awards at the 2011 American Country Awards on Monday, but the male vocalist wasn’t bothered by it — he said Shelton has really nice lips.
2011 has been plentiful for Jason Aldean. He took home six awards at Monday’s American Country Awards show alone. But with the holidays around the corner, the ‘Tattoos on This Town’ singer is planning to settle into hiding until the new year so that he can enjoy the things he’s thankful for, like his family.
The best dressed artists at any given music awards show are often as news-making as the winners themselves, and tonight’s 2011 American Country Award’ best dressed were no exception. We want to bring special attention to adorable ‘American Idol’ duo Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina, who both made our list of the ACAs’ most stylish, which is pretty impressive given their short awards show resume.
The 2011 American Country Awards were a huge success, with many of country music’s hottest stars traveling 2,000 miles from Nashville to Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena just to show their faces on the FOX network. Unfortunately, some of the outfits that the artists packed to wear to the event were not as big of a hit, which quickly landed them on our worst dressed list, as seen in this gallery of pictures.
Like any great awards show, the 2011 American Country Awards were packed full with practically as many performances as awards handed out. Host Trace Adkins kicked off the show with a medley of his hits before his co-host Kristin Chenoweth challenged him to a sing-off, which was the highlight of the evening, despite being mostly a joke.
The 2011 American Country Awards winners were announced on Dec. 5 in Las Vegas, and though it was only the second annual event, the A-list country music star showing proved that this is one awards show that’s here to stay. With so many beautiful faces and even more talent, handing out awards to name the best of the best is no easy feat.
