American Country Awards vinnere 2011

Jason Aldean var den store vinneren på mandagens American Country Awards. Han tok hjem seks nye Fender gitarer (det offisielle ‘trofeet «), inkludert en av de største prisene: Artist of the Year.
Etter å ha gått opp på scenen for sin sjette seier, sa Jason Aldean;

Dette er litt latterlig nå. Det har vært en vilt år og det er så mange mennesker å takke. Jeg kunne stå her oppe en time og takke alle jeg vil takke … bandet mitt, alle som spiller på mine albums, mitt crew ute på veien, fansen som kommer på mine konserter. Dette er definitivt ‘my kinda party’. Tusen takk!

‘My Kinda Party’ er, selvfølgelig, tittelen på Jasons nyeste album – vinneren for ACA Album of the Year. Jasons andre ACA priser fra mandagen inkluderer Single By a Male Artist, Touring Headline Package of the Year og Vocal Collaboration for ‘Don’t You Wanna Stay’ med Kelly Clarkson.

Toby Keith fremførte sin siste singel, «Red Solo Cup», etter å ha blitt utnevnt til Artist of the Decade.

Den legendariske gruppen Alabama ble hedret for sine enestående bidrag til countrymusikken, og tok hjem en gitar for Greatest Hits Award, som er basert utelukkende på spilletid på radio. Alabama har hatt imponerende 43 #1 singler iløpet av karrieren.

Thompson Square og Carrie Underwood var også blant vinnerne i kveld. Hver av dem tok hjem tre nye Fender gitarer. Keifer og Shawna Thompson, som utgjør duoen, tok hjem prisen for Single of the Year by a New Duo or Group og Single by a New Artist for sin sang, ‘Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not?‘, som også fikk prisen for Music Video of the Year by a Duo or Group.

Carrie Underwood vant for Female Artist of the Year, samt Single of the Year by a Female Artist og Music Video by a Female Artist for låta ‘Mama’s Song.’

Blake Shelton tok hjem to trofeer denne kvelden, og vant Music Video of the Year og Music Video of the Year by a Male Artist for sin sang, ‘Who Are You When I’m Not Looking‘.

Chris Young tok også hjem et par gitarer for Single of the Year for sin #1 singel, ‘Voices‘, samt ACA’s pris for Breakthrough Artist.

American Idol vinner, Scotty McCreery, tok hjem sin aller første Country Music Award, da han fikk sin Fender gitar for New Artist of the Year.
