Hey Y’All we’re talkin’ about the Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards today!
The ACM Awards were held on Sunday in Las Vegas. In what was a night of upsets, country music star Kenny Chesney who was a multiple-nominee failed to win a single award while a few underdogs had their day, no one more than Miranda Lambert who scooped up two biggies: ‘Top Female Vocalist’ and ‘Album of the Year’. Is Lambert on the way to becoming a household name?
Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson also picked up two awards, though that was certainly not unexpected. Interestingly, both Aldean and Clarkson’s two awards were shared and were for the same recording! Their duet “Don’t you Wanna Stay” won ‘Single of the Year’ and ‘Vocal Event of the Year’. Perhaps Kelly ‘Stronger’ Clarkson’s next single will be ‘From Strength to Strength’!
The night, however, surely belonged to Queen Taylor, the ‘anti-Rihanna’, free of controversy, scandal, and smut. She won her second ‘Entertainer of the Year’ award in a row, no doubt helped by her clean, wholesome image. Here’s an interesting coincidence: the only other woman to win two Entertainer of the Year awards is Carrie Underwood – and she performed at the awards, singing, of all songs, ‘Good Girl’. Hmm, isn’t Queen Taylor a ‘good girl’ of a kind, more accurately a ‘nice girl’?!
Nice Girl Queen Taylor told her subjects, “I respect you so much and I love you.” Typical ‘Taylorese’!
Taylor was also feted the previous night at Nickelodeon’s annual Kids Choice Awards (KCA). If anything, the event had more heavyweight starpower than the ACM Awards – would you believe Will Smith (emcee), supermodel Heidi Klum, Taylor Lautner, Kristen Stewart, Justin Bieber, Ashton Kutcher, Halle Berry, and First Lady Michelle Obama? Crazy!
The kids’ choice, royally slimed with green goo at the climax, was Bieber (surprise, surprise!). However, for her good works, Queen Taylor took the award – the KCA blimp – for ‘The Big Help’.
What a weekend for Taylor Swift. Queen Taylor Rules!
