There were first-time winners in the Entertainer, Album and Vocal Group of the Year categories at the 2012 CMA Awards, and fans saw brilliant performances by stars like Little Big Town, Kelly Clarkson, the Band Perry and Zac Brown Band. However, there were a few noticeable absences from this year's Nashville ceremony.
Jana Kramer and Brantley Gilbert walked the red carpet at the 2012 CMA Awards separately, but that doesn't mean their young romance has fizzled. The 'Why Ya Wanna' singer says she and Gilbert are still hanging out, but stopped herself before putting a label on the relationship.
Thompson Square's Shawna Thompson says when she needs a break from husband Keifer, she flashes something she calls the "stank eye." He might have gotten it -- the "stank eye," that is -- after telling Taste of Country Nights radio host Jeremy Robinson how he planned to celebrate if the duo won the Vocal Duo of the Year award at the 2012 CMAs.
On previous albums, Taylor Swift has written songs about ex-boyfriends like (allegedly) John Mayer, Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner and Jake Gyllenhaal. During an interview with Taste of Country Nights host Jeremy Robinson, the 'Begin Again' singer shared who she will not record a new song about, like, ever.
It's no secret that country star Miranda Lambert is a spitfire, but she also has a sensitive side. In a new interview, the 'Fastest Girl in Town' singer admitted who wears the pants in her family, and even dished on Pistol Annies, her upcoming tour with Dierks Bentley and more -- including her 2012 CMAs Song of the Year nomination for 'Over You' and the emotional video that goes along with it.
Hunter Hayes in nominated in the New Artist of the Year category at the 2012 CMA Awards -- a huge deal for a kid who's only 21. He'll even get a chance to perform, which he admitted he is a terrifying prospect. Taking the stage in front of country legends, the men and women he's idolized for years... "There's a lot of fear," Hayes tells Taste of Country Nights host Jeremy Robinson.
One wouldn't think that Brantley Gilbert would be upset over a guy who wants him to pay $12,000 for a vintage 1968 Mercury Cougar, but Gilbert has good reason to be. It seems that Gilbert actually sold the same car to its current owner more than six years ago for only $4,000.
This past Friday a bunch of us from the station took a road trip to the Houston to see the Jason Aldean/Luke Bryan show. Boy did we pass a good time. The show was at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion at the Woodlands. (By the way, If you've never been there, you should try your darnest to catch a show there. Great venue!)
