Keith Urban: 2011 ACM Top Male Vocalist?
Will Keith Urban win the 2011 ACM for Top Male Vocalist?
The ACM Awards air tonight and are one of the biggest, most prestigious country music awards shows. One of the most popular categories this year is Top Male Vocalist of the Year. The nominees in this category are: Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, George Strait and Keith Urban.
Keith Urban is probably the favorite going into the show. His record this last year was huge and his popularity seems to be growing with each passing month. His high profile marriage to Nicole Kidman also lends him popularity outside of the country music world.
George Strait has been there and done that and he is still going strong. One of the all-time favorite singers in the history of country music it is good to see the legend back being nominated and it would be pretty cool to see him win.
Jason Aldean has seen his popularity growing quickly. His most recent record My Kinda Party went to #1 on the country chart and made it all the way to #2 on the Billboard hot 200. It has already gone platinum and seems to be heading for much more.
Blake Shelton has been living the life recently. His most recent album went to #1 on the country charts and he is dating fellow country superstar Miranda Lambert. Last November he was inducted in the Grand Ole Opry and. This might just be his year to take home the trophy.
Brad Paisley is a veteran of country music with numerous albums and tours under his belt yet he still produces compelling, relevant music that keeps him at the top of the charts and in our minds. He won this category last year and with a hot album out and brand new single on the charts he is in a good position to win it again.
These are your nominees for Male Vocalist of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards. I think Keith Urban will win, but that is just a gut feeling.
The ACM Awards air tonight at 8PM on CBS. Tune in to see who wins, who loses and who performs live.
