Reba McEntire‘s fans weren’t the only ones devastated when a death hoax surrounding the flame-haired country queen spread across the web fast enough to become a trending topic. As it turns out, McEntire’s own nephew suffered panic attack when he caught wind of the virally spreading “news” that his aunt had plummeted to her death after falling from a mountain while filming in Austria.
Even though he is the co-host of the 2012 ACM Awards, Blake Shelton didn’t stuff the ballot to win the Male Vocalist of the Year award. He won it because he is awesome. We’d venture to guess that some of his newly-cultivated fans from his stint on the ‘The Voice‘ voted, too.
Dierks Bentley has friends in high places. No, seriously. The singer performed his smash hit song ‘Home’ at the 2012 ACM Awards tonight (April 1), but not before he was introduced by none other than Bono. Yes, that Bono, of U2 fame.
Toby Keith began his performance of his monster hit ‘Red Solo Cup’ while walking through the crowd at the 2012 ACM Awards tonight (April 1) with a — you guessed it — red Solo cup in one hand and a microphone in the other. The singer roamed amongst the people for the course of the entire song, and most of the audience members were also holding their own disposable receptacles — aka the things that are not just a cup but a friend. Nothing like a prop to make a point!
Wearing his signature white cowboy hat, Brad Paisley performed ‘Camouflage’ at the 2012 ACM Awards tonight (April 1). He did so after he was introduced by his buddy and tourmate Scotty McCreery, who offered up a half performance of ‘Water Tower Town’ moments before. Life imitated art as Paisley wore a black and grey camo pattern button-down for his performance.
Eric Church was such a multi-tasker when he performed his single ‘Springsteen,’ which is a reference to the one and only Bruce (aka The Boss), who is an artist that Church reveres, at the 2012 ACM Awards tonight (April 1). Church began the song while standing and playing the piano, with his guitar strapped to his person. It didn’t look exactly comfortable with a guitar-as-appendage, protruding from his side, but he didn’t miss a beat or a note.
Before Little Big Town sang ‘Here’s Hope’ at the 2012 ACM Awards tonight (April 1), singer/songwriter Hunter Hayes introduced them, after performing the first verse of his song ‘Storm Warning.’ Hayes actually co-penned ‘Here’s Hope,’ which is part of the ACM Lifting Lives initiative. The song and the performance were designed to shed light on the epidemic of child hunger.
We’re used to seeing Blake Shelton on primetime TV, with his role as a coach on ‘The Voice,’ which catapulted him to mainstream fame. But his roots will always be in country music. Instead of offering sarcastic and hilarious comments to hopefuls on the reality singing competition or ribbing with his co-stars, Shelton took the stage at the 2012 ACM Awards tonight (April 1) to co-host and to perform. He took a break from making jokes and entertaining the crowd with one-liners to slow things down and perform his new single ‘Drink on It.’
The Band Perry could have easily performed their crossover smash hit ‘If I Die Young’ at the 2012 ACM Awards tonight (April 1), but the trio instead chose to give fans and viewers something new. They performed their hot-off-the-press single ‘Postcard From Paris’ and it sounded so good, it was as though they’ve been rocking it live for eons. It’s a smart strategy to promote a brand new single at an awards show forum such as this and it’s one of TBP’s best songs. So it was win-win for the band and its fans.
Carrie Underwood opened the 2012 ACM Awards tonight (April 1) by performing her brand new single ‘Good Girl’ for the first time live on TV. What a way to start the show and what a way for the singer to debut her latest hit, which will appear on her forthcoming album ‘Blown Away,’ due one month from today. The singer set the tone for the evening with her fierce performance.
Scotty McCreery is a legitimate country superstar at the tender age of 18. He won Season 10 of ‘American Idol’ in 2011 and was just awarded a platinum plaque for ‘Clear as Day,’ which celebrates a million copies sold. He’s performed on several late night TV shows and has embarked on major tours. But underneath it all, he’s still a country boy at heart who plans to further his education. He confirmed to CMT Radio (thanks, mjsbigblog) that while he was accepted to all four colleges that he applied to, he will be attending North Carolina State University in Raleigh.
