Christmas is something Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton look forward to -- and not just because everyone and their mother happily anticipates the holidays in light of cookies and eggnog, or that you get to tear open expertly wrapped gifts. The couple is so busy with their respective burgeoning careers that they view the holiday season as time to slow down and reconnect with one another. As it turns out, Shelton is also a big decorator. Who knew?
It's been 18 years between Christmas albums for Sammy Kershaw, but the singer says despite personal and professional ups and downs, the meaning of the holiday hasn't changed one bit. On 'A Sammy Klaus Christmas' he says he was looking to simplify -- to create a collection of songs that kids could enjoy in the way he enjoyed the holidays during his childhood.
While Sugarland singer Jennifer Nettles tends to her newborn son -- first child Magnus Hamilton Miller -- her duet partner Kristian Bush continues to explore other sides of his sonic personality and remains increasingly busy.
The 2012 American Country Awards were Monday night (Dec. 10), and while the show has improved each year in the three since its introduction to Fox, there is still some room for growth. The support from superstars like Jason Aldean and Lady Antebellum proves the show is being embraced by the country music community. With a few tweaks -- some major, some minor -- it could be received with open arms by viewers at home, as well.
Miranda Lambert presented the first of the 2012 American Country Awards winners with guitar on Monday (Dec. 10) night, but later came back to accept three of her own at the star-studded event. However, it was Luke Bryan's night to shine, as the 'I Don't Want This Night to End' singer won nine total ACAs, including two for his radio successes.
It's hard to imagine anyone but Luke Bryan making 'Drunk on You' one of country music's 2012 summertime smashes, but according to Jason Aldean, he had first dibs on the sexy mid-tempo track. Aldean ultimately turned down the tune because it didn't fit the sonic direction of his latest album, 'Night Train.'
