The stars seemingly braved the cold on the red carpet for the 2011 American Country Awards. FOX News correspondent Ashley Dvorkin commented on the chilly weather multiple times, handling her interviews without a shawl or a coat. She was a trooper. The stars were asked about their holiday plans, how much time they spent getting ready before the big show and how they felt about their nominations for these fan-voted awards. Her signature question was what the artists would title a song about this past year.
Keith Urban may not be able to speak or sing while he recovers from throat surgery, which he had to remove a polyp from his vocal chord, but he will certainly continue to work and play guitar to keep himself busy. Urban will pass the time with good friend and fellow country superstar Brad Paisley — the two will simply handle their instruments, and you certainly don’t need to talk in order to play guitar. That’s why musical is a universal and voiceless language.
Taylor Swift shows us another side of herself in her new ‘Ours’ video. Here, Swift plays a frumpy, office-dwelling working stiff who is incredibly sad and utterly “meh.” The only thing that perks her up? Love — or thinking about it, of course.
Sugarland singer Jennifer Nettles is off the market. The singer quietly married her longtime beau, entrepreneur Justin Miller, in a small ceremony in Tennessee over the weekend. Nettles and Miller have been dating for over two years.
It’s that time again, country fans! The 2012 season of ‘American Idol’ will kick off this January. It’ll be the show’s 11th season and let’s hope that this season follows the same trajectory as the last, when the final two contestants were country artists! Will Scotty McCreery‘s heir apparent make it to the top? Will we find our next Lauren Alaina? It’s certainly an exciting prospect, since country music dominated the show last season. That trend could very well continue into 2012.
Keith Urban is about to go on “complete vocal lockdown” for three weeks after he has throat surgery, so he took two minutes to issue a video message, thanking fans their support, love, cards, messages and gift baskets. Urban is about to have a polyp surgically removed and is expected to make a full recovery.
‘Survivor: South Pacific’ castaway and country singer Whitney Duncan is denying that she engaged in a scandalous affair — and that she cheated on the husband no one knew she was married to while on the island. Sources claim that the blonde beauty was already in the process of divorcing, so it’s technically not cheating.
Miranda Lambert joined fellow blond Chelsea Handler on ‘Chelsea Lately’ last night (Nov. 17). The acid-tongued Handler is known for her sarcastic humor and her whip-smart dialogue with her guests, so we were anxious to see how the equally ballsy and funny Lambert would play off of that particular interview style. It was as fun as we expected it to be, between these two sassy gals.
The recent Penn State sex abuse scandal has been a constant in national news headlines over the past few weeks. Due to the ubiquitous story, country singer Vince Gill was reminded of a situation in his past where he was a near victim of sexual abuse.
There are few pop culture accolades higher than PEOPLE‘s annual Sexiest Man Alive. Heck, even actor and perennial Sexiest Man Alive George Clooney made reference to receiving this vaunted status during his Oscar acceptance speech a few years ago. While actor Bradley Cooper took the top honor this year, country superstar Tim McGraw also made the list. That’s right, ladies and gentlemen! For the third year in a row, McGraw has been anointed one of the Sexiest Men Alive.
Taylor Swift brought even more heat to the always hot city of Miami, Fla. on Sunday night (Nov. 13). The singer’s special onstage guest this time was rapper Flo Rida. With a name like Flo Rida, it’s obvious where he’s from, and he was the perfect choice for her to duet with, continuing her tradition of performing with and/or covering local artists. With her recent stage guests and performance mashups, Swift has certainly shown off her love of the hip-hop genre. She is nothing if not a versatile performer with eclectic taste in music.
Luke Bryan served as the red carpet correspondent for ‘Ellen’ at the 2011 CMA Awards on Wednesday night (Nov. 9), and he worked it. With his charming personality and his terrific sense of humor, Bryan was perfect for the gig. Bryan and Ellen DeGeneres (via satellite) had fun with their interviews. Normally, red carpets are serious and somewhat stale affairs, but this duo asked silly questions and lightened the mood.
