Yay for Kenny and some other favs!

"Kenny Chesney accepted his fourth award for entertainer of the year from the Academy of Country Music on Sunday (May 18) in Las Vegas -- the first time the ceremony's highest honor was voted on by fans."  ...yes'um and I totally voted for him!!  :)  Congrats, Kenny!

"Rascal Flatts won the vocal group award and also received The ACM/The Home Depot Humanitarian Award. Gripping the group trophy, Gary LeVox said, "The fans, thank you so much for coming out every night. Thank you all so very much, seriously. We like to give God all the thanks and all the glory for giving us a stage to stand up and perform on every night. Thank you to Las Vegas for keeping air conditioners on."

"Accepting the top female vocalist award, Carrie Underwood said, "Wow! God is good! God is good! I would like to thank the most wonderful family in the world. I have great parents, great sisters, great family. ... There are so many people who have done so many wonderful things for me, and I know I don't deserve it. But I'll take it!" Then she quickly added, "Oh, fans! Thank you fans! Duh! Fans got me everything that I have and I owe everything to you, so thank you fans."

"Sugarland's "Stay" secured two awards. Jennifer Nettles, who wrote the song, burst into tears upon winning the song of the year. At the podium, she declared, "It means so much to me that you guys really relate to this song and that you accept it. Thank you so much to my partner Kristian Bush and to Gail Gelman [manager] for believing in this song before anybody did."

Wow, Carrie Underwood is stunningly beautiful, isn't she?! I have a friend who was actually THERE and invited to an after-party. Can't wait to hear how she hobnobbed with the country stars! I told her that her assignment was to find out from Kenny Chesney what really happened with Renee Z. :-) I'll let you know what I find out! Have a great day!

I agreed with all the categories you've listed here EXCEPT KC. I am a huge KEITH URBAN fan. He's like the dreamiest. Well, him and DC ;)
