Today marks 70 years since the attack on Pearl Harbor by Japan on Dec. 7, 1941, which killed 2,402 Americans and wounded more than half as many, effectively starting World War II. People worldwide are undoubtedly taking time out of their day to think about the devastating attack that changed everything, country music stars included.
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.
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 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.
Chris Young is taking a month-long break from drinking — or at least, that’s the goal. The ‘Tomorrow’ hitmaker shared via his Twitter page that he’s inciting No Alcohol December following the ever-popular No Shave November, which means he won’t drink until after Christmas.
Faith Hill knows the true meaning of Christmas — it’s making sure the reindeer are fed. After spilling the intimate details of her holiday traditions with her country cowboy husband Tim McGraw during the ‘CMA Country Christmas’ special, the blonde songstress laid down a good kind of sleepy song: the classic ‘Little Drummer Boy.’
As Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles remarked, Martina McBride has one of the best voices in music — not just in country, but in all genres. McBride practically floated as she sang her rendition of ‘Please Come Home for Christmas’ on the Dec. 1 ‘CMA Country Christmas’ special, which we’d argue could be the performance of the evening.
It seems that Tim McGraw‘s next 30 years will be even sweeter than the last. A judge has ruled in favor of the ‘Felt Good on My Lips’ hitmaker in his legal battle with Curb Records, which means that the chains have been cut and he’s free to record new music apart from the label.
According to reports, Taylor Swift is on a list of females potentially suited to fill the role of Eponine in the new big screen adaptation of ‘Les Miserables,’ as directed by Oscar winner Tom Hooper. A source close to the film claims that Swift has even auditioned already.
You could say that Brantley Gilbert‘s 2011 Taste of Country Christmas Tour shows are going well. So far, the ‘Country Must Be Country Wide’ hitmaker has played four of the 10 concerts on his run, and all four have sold out. In December, Gilbert will hit six more shows across Texas and Louisiana — two of which are already out of tickets, as well.
