Carrie & George win big at ACM Awards

It's all about the music, the people, the fans and the Country music family... that's what I love about the ACM awards... Every year, the show delivers on it's promise of providing three hours of wholesome family entertainment. Reba McEntire did her usual outstanding job as host, later singing an outstanding duet with Kelly Clarkson of the latter's #1 hit "Because Of You."

There were so many highlights to the show last night, it would literally take me forever to write about it all... what I'll probably remember the most were some of the moving tributes paid last night. Who could not help but love Taylor Swift singing her hit "Tim McGraw" and then walking right down to the legend himself and his wife, Faith Hill and begin serending Tim???!!!... that was truly a special moment! Rascal Flatts then performed "The Leaving Kind," paying tribute to the victims of the Virginia Tech shooting... I couldn't help but well up when I started watching the video screen as it started to show pictures of the victims. Just before the show's closing, Tim McGraw performed a moving new song which paid tribute to "America's fallen heroes."

As for the big winners last night, well Carrie Underwood added three more awards to her now HUGE collection. Carrie won Female Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year for "Some Hearts," and the Video of the Year award for "Before He Cheats." George Strait took home the Single of the Year and Song of the Year awards for his song "Give It Away." Brooks & Dunn also took home two awards, including the Humanitarian of the Year award... Rascal Flatts, Rodney Atkins, Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley and Little Big Town also took home awards.
