The 2012 CMA Awards are on the horizon, and the countdown begins today with predictions on each of the nine major categories. You also have a chance to choose a winner for each award in a daily readers poll. Who do you predict to win the Single of the Year award at the 2012 CMAs?
Darius Rucker's 'True Believers' lyrics, like many great country songs, hit close to home. The new Opry addition penned the song with hit songwriter Josh Kear, and it's the first single from his forthcoming third studio album, slated for release in January.
Luke Bryan knows how to deliver a song with passion. Just look at the 'Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye' lyrics. Bryan helped pen the sexy single with his record producer, Jeff Stevens, and hit songwriter, Shane McAnally.
Dierks Bentley's annual Miles and Music for Kids event is one he looks forward to year round. Unfortunately, the 2012 charity motorcycle ride and concert -- scheduled for Sunday afternoon (Oct. 14) -- has been canceled due to severe weather in the Nashville area.
Brad Paisley -- simply put -- is a musical genius, especially when it comes to creating lyrics to some of his biggest hits. Paisley's 'Southern Comfort Zone' lyrics are no exception. The singer took his time penning the tune with two of his best songwriting pals, Kelley Lovelace and Chris DuBois, for his forthcoming album, which is slated for release in April.
Like with many of their tunes, Zac Brown Band's 'Goodbye in Her Eyes' lyrics were birthed with help from Wyatt Durrette. The songwriter began to write the tune over a decade ago, before taking the song to Brown to finish.
Gloriana's 'Can't Shake You' lyrics and melody fit together like a hand and glove. However, that reality was almost not realized. Hit songwriter James T. Slater had the piano melody in his back pocket for nearly a year, but never found the perfect word marriage until he linked up with Gloriana's Tom Gossin and fellow songwriter Stephanie Bentley.
The 2012 CMA Awards performers are beginning to be announced. The November 1 show in Nashville promises to feature the hottest superstars and country newcomers, as well as a few surprise collaborations. With artists like Eric Church, Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert and Little Big Town leading the nominees, the ABC broadcast should be one a country music fan won't want to miss.
We all know how hard teachers work and how little they get paid. August 14th a group of actors and musicians will come together to celebrate teachers and education and Garth Brooks will be one of those celebrities.
