You don't have to be a fan or regular listener of country music to enjoy a good awards show. The 46th Annual Academy of Country Music (ACM) awards will be televised live on Sunday, April 3.
Two of my favorite ACM catagories for the 2011 awards are entertainer of the year and album of the year. Like most protagonists in a country music song, I am looking for a change and hope the academy gives a nod to Aldean or Lambert for entertainer of the year.
If you need a refresher on a performer's talents, listen to one of the CDs by a nominated artist:
- Jason Aldean / My Kinda Party
- Toby Keith / Bullets in the Gun
- Miranda Lambert / Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
- Brad Paisley / American Saturday Night
- Taylor Swift / Fearless
- Keith Urban / Get Closer
The Library also has copies of the CDs for top album of the year contenders. There is plenty to celebrate in this category:
- You Get What You Give / Zac Brown Band
- Up on the Ridge / Dierks Bentley
- Speak Now / Taylor Swift
- The Guitar Song / Jamey Johnson
- Need You Now / Lady Antebellum
- Hemingway's Whiskey / Kenny Chesney
Interested in vocal duo, male/female artist of the year, or song of the year? Check them out at the Library! Music on the country side can jump start your two step.
