It’s getting increasingly difficult to keep the myriad country music awards straight these days and seems as if there is a different one every few weeks.
The CMA Awards, essentially the Grammys of country music – air Nov. 1 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
But on Dec. 10, the third annual American Country Awards, essentially the People’s Choice Awards of country music, will air live from Las Vegas on Fox with hosts Trace Adkins and Kristin Chenoweth.
(There are also the CMT Music Awards in the summer and the Academy of Country Music Awards in April.)
What separates the ACMs, though, is that they’re entirely fan voted and this year, touring and Song of the Year (for songwriters) categories have been added to the mix.
So who is up for some trophies? Lots of Georgia acts, as is commonplace when country accolades are being bestowed.
