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.
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.
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 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.
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.
From the sound of it, Keith Urban will be better in no time following a successful throat surgery. The ‘Without You’ singer underwent the outpatient procedure to remove a polyp on his vocal chords earlier this week and thankfully, came out unscathed.
Tim McGraw is still searching for greener pastures. The iconic country singer is seeking to cut ties with his record label, Curb Records, once and for all, just so he can have the freedom to get new music to his patiently waiting fans. McGraw and Curb will go face to face in court starting Tuesday to hopefully find a resolution.
You could say that Blake Shelton is a big advocate of his First Amendment right to free speech. OK, Shelton likes to run his mouth. The ‘Honey Bee’ hitmaker is notorious for using Twitter as an outlet for his thoughts — whatever they may be — which has sometimes shown him backlash from angry groups like PETA and GLAAD. To celebrate his freedoms, however, Shelton has jumped on board with the Free to Tweet campaign, which will in turn encourage kids to do the same to earn money for school.
Taylor Swift is thoroughly enjoying her life in the spotlight, and what else could she really need? The chart-topping songstress has millions of fans, countless awards and even more hit singles. And though she doesn’t currently have a boyfriend, Swift told ‘60 Minutes‘ that one day she’d love to be married with kids — lots of kids.
Taylor Swift‘s Speak Now Tour draws to a close in New York City on Tuesday (Nov. 22), and the 21-year-old superstar is going out with a bang. At her first of two shows at Madison Square Garden on Monday, Swift invited yet another surprise guest to sing with her. This time, it was Goo Goo Dolls’ Johnny Rzeznik there to perform the band’s biggest hit, ‘Iris.’
Taylor Swift‘s new ‘Speak Now World Tour Live’ set doesn’t hit stores until Monday, Nov. 21, but you can get a sample of what to expect right now with Taste of Country’s exclusive premiere of her live performance of ‘Last Kiss.’
Charles Kelley will make sure his musical preferences are played at Hillary Scott’s wedding, whether she likes it or not. After the 2011 CMA Awards on Wednesday, CMT caught up with the Lady Antebellum trio to chat about their award wins — and more importantly, how Scott’s wedding planning adventure is going.
