The days of Country music defining itself by mandolins and banjos are over.  With many thanks to Country-Pop crossover acts such as Taylor Swift and Lady Antebellum, the country music audience has grown exponentially in the past years.  On November 9, the 45th CMA Awards  will air live on ABC at 8/7c.  For the fourth consecutive year, Carrie Underwood will host the event with Brad Paisley.

The highest honor one can win at the CMAs is Entertainer of the Year. You see, selling albums is only half of the deal to them; the Country music scene thrives on live shows, summer tours and TV specials. Up for Entertainer of the Year this year are Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, Taylor Swift and Keith Urban.  Although Paisley, Swift and Urban have won in past years, you can expect performances from all five nominees.

So stayed tuned for a recap after the show airs.  Because if there’s anything I love talking about more then Dubstep, Electronic music, and British singers, it’s Country music.

With their new album “Own the Night” just released on September 13, Lady Antebellum is nominated for Vocal Group of the Year.  Here is the album’s second single “We Owned the Night”:
