Carrie Underwood sweeps American Country Awards

62723451Carrie Underwood took home Artist of the Year and five other categories during last night’s new American Country Awards on Fox. Unlike the ACM and CMA awards shows, this one is voted on by the public.

And Underwood fans sure know how to vote!

Her other victories: Female Artist of the Year, Album of the Year for Play On, Single by a Female artist for “Cowboy Casanova”, Video by a Female Artist for “Cowboy Casanova” and Touring Artist of the Year.

“We have had the most amazing year out on the road,” Underwood said in her acceptance speech.

“Of course, we wouldn’t be doing anything if it weren’t for the people sitting out there in that audience, so to everyone that came out to see us and anybody else out here — you guys are awesome.”

Do we really need a fourth major country music award, on top of the American Music Awards and the Grammys? Not really. We’ll see how the ratings did last night and that will tell us if Fox will try this again.

Danny Gokey lost Breakthrough Artist of the Year to Easton Corbin. Kellie Pickler lost to Carrie for Single of the Year for a Female and Video of the Year for a Female.

-I’m watching “The Amazing Race” on line and during a white-water rafting portion, one of the contestants yelled “Kelly Clarkson!” Thank you, Steve Carell, for that one!

BTW, I didn’t watch this show either. I watched the last show for Little People, Big World.

From the previous thread.

Good Morning.

A good way to start this awfully cold day. A good joke and an Elvis Christmas song. Can’t get much better.

Watched the ACA (America Country Awards) last night, and Carrie Underwood took home the top award, “Artist of the Year.” She looked good, as usual, in a one shoulder strap red gown.

Also from previous thread.

So, I turned into the ACAs midway through. Carrie won every single award she was nominated for. The ACAs are fan voted, I think Carrie’s fans know how to work that system. Kelly was surprisingly in attendance with Reba and I hear that she sang at Blake Shelton’s afterparty with her…and Miranda Lambert. (Hi Rickster!)

And I’m not a huge Chris Daughtry fan, but this was beyond adorable. http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20447523,00.html

Oh, and Carrie thinks we’re awesome, Rodney. Sweet. ;)

Here’s the Elvis Christmas song from previous thread: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXhfIbKGwu8 The cold weather brought it to my mind.

KCF, thanks for the link about Chris. How precious!

I also said hello on previous thread, so hello again. Daughtry’s babies have more hair than he does.

What kind of breakout did Gokey provide?? I wasn’t told he had “settled” on country. Remember how he couldn’t make up his mind for forever, if he was “Christian music” or “country” or “pop”?

Just curious— was T. Swift nominated for any of the six awards won by Carrie Underwood Fisher?

Not related to “Idol” but newsworthy to this blog: be careful if you are going to visit JTesla—there are some badazz deer in Oregon!

BEND, Ore. — A Bend, Ore., woman says three deer attacked her barking dog and left the pet with head wounds and a punctured chest, but she’s expected to make a full recovery. (from ajc.com)

K&C- thanks for Kelly’s pic; not a fan of Reba, but Kelly looks really pretty (it’s sideways, but still she looks pretty).

Buster Poindexter was to David Johanssen (sp?) what Chris Gaines was to Garth Brooks – only more successful. :-)

Is the guitar the award (like the surfboard from the “Peoples’ Choice Awards?”)

I didn’t watch the show last night. So I’m just curious.

Rickster- I didn’t watch either but I believe the guitar is indeed the award. At least that is what I gathered from clips on HLN this morning…

Reba has been working out too much. She is beginning to look like a guy with the arms she’s got now. I like toned arms, but this is a bit much. Just me ;)

I have to agree with Harriett, it’s a little much. Besides, old ladies like her look a little better with some weight on them. It just looks more natural. ;)

Ha! Wreckedpizza, so kind. And yes, Swift was nominated for some of these awards. Carrie swept all her nominations. After the show, she said, “Well, my whole career has been voter based.”

HA, JT. See, give me a picture of Reba and Kelly…probably won’t notice Reba. ;)

“Well, my whole career has been voter based.” a very wise woman.

So Taylor didn’t win… meh.

K&Cfan, not just a picture of Kelly and Reba, a picture of HOT Kelly. That girl seems to be on a 3 year cycle going from “Hot Kelly” to “She sure sounds good Kelly”

LOL, JT. Good point. And let’s not forget that she’s had a lot of off time, and is gearing up for a new album early next year… just sayin’.

Kelly looked fantastic, but why not remove the price tag from that hot dress?

In other Idol news, USA Today’s music critic Jerry Shriver highights 10 intriguing tracks found during the week’s listening. His pick of the week: Adam lambert’s “Mad World”. Reason:

“Though this version of a song he made famous on American idol comes from the new five-track ‘Acoustic Live!’ album, there’s no shortage of electricity or passion. The tale of wanting to escape from a meaningless existence sounds even more urgent as Lambert attacks his acoustic guitar and gives full-throat to that dramatic tenor voice”

Re: Adam “and gives full-throat” LOL. Oh he did not write that!

Well, I did not know that Adam had anything new coming out, so I guess it is good to spread the word.

Other than Jackson & Strait, the CMA awards has become glorification of manufactured, “plastic”, pop (so-called) country. If ya’ll want REAL country…saddle up with some Hank Sr, Hank 3, George Jones, Haggard, Waylon, David Allen Coe, Bob Wills, etc. This modern mess is just pop pitched as “country”.

George and Merle can retire once Casey James releases his “real” country debut.
