Sin City celebrated country music — and Carrie Underwood — Monday night during the first annual American Country Awards.
Performers Rascal Flatts, Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton helped celebrate the first ever American Country Awards live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on December 6.
The new country music awards show hosted by Trace Adkins (yeah, there’s another country music awards show) puts the artists’ fate in the hands of the fans. Country lovers had a chance to vote for their favorite country music artists online in a variety of categories.
The American Country Awards aired live on Fox and when it came down to the fans’ choice for biggest winner of the night, one American Idol winner raised her Fender Stratocaster trophy higher than the rest — Carrie Underwood.
While Underwood has always been a fan favorite, we couldn’t help but wonder what happened to the momentum of country music’s latest lucky lady, Miranda Lambert? Lambert has been steamrolling the competition at every awards show lately, but Underwood’s six ACA trophies couldn’t be denied.
