The Vocal Group of the Year category was arguably the most loaded of all 2011 CMA Awards categories, and Lady Antebellum said as much as they accepted the honor during Wednesday night’s broadcast. It’s the second straight year the trio has taken home the award.
Taylor Swift watched as her name went unread during the first four categories she was nominated for at the 2011 CMA Awards. When Reba McEntire announced the Entertainer of the Year Award winner, it seemed like the world had been lifted from the 21-year-old’s shoulders.
Jason Aldean gave the audience at the 2011 CMA Awards a taste of life in small-town America when he performed his single ‘Tattoos on This Town.’ Although he likely was full of anticipation as a top contender for several of the evening’s awards, he seemed fully into the performance of the song about teenage antics, including drag racing pickup trucks and Mustangs up and down dirt roads and otherwise leaving ‘Tattoos on This Town.’
With the CMA Awards just hours away, artists are spending the day primping and prepping to look and sound their best for tonight’s show. Trace Adkins tells Taste of Country that he doesn’t want any part of that, revealing that he’ll be skipping the awards show this year.
Nashville was rocking tonight with country’s biggest stars like Keith Urban, Zac Brown, Taylor Swift and Lady Antebellum providing the soundtrack for the 2011 CMA Awards! Blake Shelton opened the night with a high-flying performance of ‘Footloose.’ Kenny Chesney and Grace Potter teamed up for a tender performance of ‘You and Tequila,’ and Taylor Swift performed her new single ‘Ours’ on what looked like her worn in living room couch.
New footage from the 2011 CMA Awards rehearsals has emerged, featuring country’s top stars getting ready for Wednesday’s show. Spotlights ablaze, hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley warm up for their duet ‘Remind Me’ and Faith Hill prepares for the premiere of her long-awaited new single ‘Come Home’ in the video seen below.
Next month’s CMA Awards in Nashville will begin with Blake Shelton. The reigning Male Vocalist of the Year will open the show singing ‘Footloose,’ the song he recorded for a remake of the 1984 movie starring Kevin Bacon.
