Wow, this whole Faith Hill reaction to CarrieÂ Underwood winning the Female Vocalist of theÂ YearÂ award at the CMAsÂ has caused quite a ruckus!Â Who knew that we paid so much attention to Hill’s reactions?
Here’s the story, in caseÂ you’re livingÂ under a pile ofÂ very heavy rocks.Â Â Â When Carrie Underwood was announced as the Female Vocalist of the Year award winner Monday, Faith Hill was spotted on camera screaming “What??!!”Â [See video here]
So folks have been upset with HillÂ & her possible jealously for the new, younger star.Â But Nashville’s stars are coming to the defense of the veteran country star.
Close pal Martina McBride told the Tennessean that Hill was “just clowning around.
Kenny Chesney also came to Hill’s rescue, sayingÂ that he has known Faith forÂ more than a decade, and that she doesn’t have aÂ malicious or jealous bone in her body.
Interestingly, both Hill & Underwood are nominated forÂ Best Female VocalistÂ in the People’s Choice Awards, to be held January 9.Â Well, that should be fun.Â Maybe they’ll come up with a cute skit about this one.
Well, it was a night filled with spectacle & entertainment as the 40th Annual Country Music Association AwardsÂ hit the stageÂ Monday.Â Â Kenny Chesney won the coveted entertainer of the year while Brooks & Dunn’sÂ hit song Believe won three awards includingÂ Single of the Year &Â Song of the Year.
“This year has in ways been the most emotionally satisfying year and also the most emotionally draining year of my life,” Chesney stated.Â Kenny was of course referring to his roller coaster ride marriage &Â high-profile split with Renee Zellweger last year.
“There have been so many ups and downs, it’s been like a huge emotional roller coaster ride,” Kenny went on to say.
One of the most moving events of the evening was when the Top Male Vocalist award was announced, and Keith Urban won the prestigious award.Â Urban, who is currently in an alcohol rehabilitation center, received a standing ovation while his award was accepted by Ronnie Dunn.
Dunn read a letter to the crowdÂ penned by Urban thanking his wife Nicole Kidman, “To my wife, Nicole, I love you.”
“I’m looking forward to coming home and seeing you all soon.”
DunnÂ smiled & said,Â “We love you Keith good luck, brother.”
Wow, you gotta loveÂ how the country starts do it up.Â Congrats to all the winners!
Sean “Diddy” Combs, pictured here with fans outside NBC studios in Rockefeller Plaza, performed for The Today Show Friday much to the excitement of his fans.
The NYC broadcast was just as exciting as Combs’, minus you could see him like 100 times better.Â Sean showed up for the performance in a very sheek vest, tie & pants number, all in refined gray color.
We are so happy to see Sean’s career going so well.
