DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Jason Aldean is one of country music’s hottest stars, and you’ll be able to see him Sunday night on CBS 11 starting at 7:00 p.m. when he joins all of his Nashville buddies for the 47th annual Academy of Country Music Awards.
Blake Shelton and Reba McEntire will host the three-hour event, broadcast live from Las Vegas. The MGM Grand Hotel hosts country’s biggest party of the year, and Aldean said that he is honored to be nominated for six awards this year — including the all-important Entertainer of the Year.
Kenny Chesney leads the pack with nine nods, but it’s anyone’s guess who will walk away with the big prize. As in year’s past, the fans can get in on the action by voting for their favorite stars online at CBS.com. Aldean said that all of the artists love the fact that their fans can have a say in the outcome, and this year the competition is fierce!
A big shout-out of congrats to our very own Billy Bob’s, once again awarded Club of the Year. Jason said that he holds many great memories performing there over the years, and told me it is really the place to play if you’re a country music musician. The first time he visited the famous honky tonk, he said, he was bowled over! It was the biggest club he had ever seen, and he still holds it dear in his heart!
Watch the 47th annual ACM Awards this Sunday night at 7:00 p.m. live on CBS 11.
