Three new performances have been added to the lineup for the 2014 CMA Awards. The Band Perry, Lady Antebellum and Little Big Town will entertain us on November 5th. All three groups are up for Vocal Group of the Year, and Lady Antebellum also received a Music Video of the Year nomination for ‘Bartender.’ The 2014 CMA Awards will air live from Nashville’s Brodgestone Arena at 8PM ET on ABC. Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood return as hosts of the show.
Nashville was decked out in leather on Sunday as Dierks Bentley held his ninth annual Miles and Music for Kidsmotorcycle ride and concert to benefit the Monroe Carell, Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. Friends Chris Young, Kip Moore, Randy Houser and Jon Pardi performed at the end of the ride. The event raised $335,479, bringing the nine-year total to around $2.6 million. And to keep up the tradition of giving extravagant thank you gifts Dierks gave Chris, Kip, Randy and Jon…drones. And they all have their money on Jon to be the first to crash his. I’ll take that bet…
Carrie’s new single, Lady A’s new album 747 and Blake Shelton’s Bringing Back The Sunshine. You can enjoy all of them today! Celebrate! Blake Shelton‘s hometown of Ada, Oklahoma is celebrating today too! (Seeing as their water tower is the cover of blakes new album…) One of their streets is being renamed to “Blake Shelton Boulevard” and they’re holding a block party to commemorate the naming.
