Feb 13Carrie Underwood lands two nominations for the 2013 ACM awards
The 48th Academy of Country Music Awards released this year’s nominees in a digital press conference on Wednesday, Feb. 13. Leading the pack of nominees were Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Little Big Town, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, andHunter Hayes. Underwood, whose platinum-selling Blown Away scored a nod in the “Album of the Year” category, also picked up an additional nomination for “Female Vocalist of the Year.”
The Oklahoma-native is riding high this week, as the singer picked up her sixth Grammy award of her career for her windy chart-topper “Blown Away.” A tale of sorrowful revenge, Underwood tells the lamented story of a daughter caught in an unbelievable storm and must make the decision to abandon her abusive, alcoholic father. During Sunday’s55th Annual Grammy Awards, she also took the stage for a beautiful acoustic rendition of the song, before launching into an orchestra-driven performance of her current Country single, “Two Black Cadillacs.”
“Blown Away” also picked up a Grammy for “Best Country Song,” which was awarded to the songwriting powerhouse duo, Chris Tompkins and Josh Kear. Previously, they nabbed a Grammy for Underwood’s crossover smash, “Before He Cheats.”
Also picking up nominations for the upcoming ACM Awards were Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert,Blake Shelton, Martina McBride, Florida Georgia Line and The Band Perry, just to name a few.
The live event will be hosted by Shelton and Bryan and will kick off on Sunday, April 7, at 8 p.m. EST.
