Lambert was struggling to hold her awards at the American Country Music Awards on Sunday (6th April). The singer won three of the large trophies and posed somewhat awkwardly but happily in the press room. The 30-year-old took home the most awards after she won Female Vocalist of the Year, Single Record of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year alongside Keith Urban. Urban was a secretive runner up with two awards as, not only did he collaborate with Lambert for Vocal event, but he also featured (alongside Taylor Swift) in Tim Mcgraw's 'Highway Don't Care' which won Video of the Year.
The country singer, having wrapped up his tour, was on his way to Illinois for a vacation .
Jason Aldean has offered up his prayers and support for the family and friends of a man struck by his tour bus on an Indiana highway. Albert Kennedy of Vincennes, Indiana was pronounced dead on the scene.
"With a heavy heart, I'm sad to say that a man passed away last night after stepping out in front of my bus in Indiana," Aldean said in an online statement.
Aldean had already wrapped up his tour, and was travelling to Illinois for a brief vacation, so was the only passenger on the bus at the time. The Knox County sheriff's department said that Kennedy "walked out into the middle of the roadway" and was struck by the bus.

Jason Aldean's tour bus was involved in an accident on Monday (28th October). A pedestrian was hit when he walked into the middle of the road. The incident occurred in Indiana early this morning and the country singer was on board at the time of the accident.

The nominees for this year's CMA Awards have been announced and it's safe to say the list is packed with talent.
The CMA nominations have been announced, y’all, and this year everyone’s favorite country girl Taylor Swift appears to have some competition, in the face of debutante Kacey Musgraves. Both Swift and Musgraves received six nods for the country awards, including categories, which have been almost reserved for Taylor for the past couple of years – Album of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year.
Taylor might have some tough competition in the face of newcommer Kacey Musgraves.
The other favorite to win some of those… pointy… statuettes this year is Miranda Lambert, whose work has been nominated in both solo and group categories (with Pistol Annies) and whose special brand of sass has been making waves this year. Lambert’s husband, Blake Shelton is also up for five categories, including Entertainer of the Year and Album of the Year. No surprises there, but with Swift, Musgraves and Carrie Underwood all competing in the Album category, he’ll have a tough time beating the odds. The same goes for the Entertainer category, where Shelton is once again up against that powerhouse of a performer Swift, as well as Jason Aldean, George Strait and Luke Bryant – all huge names in country at the moment.
Stars and Boston natives banded together for the charity event.
The Boston Strong benefit for the victims of the marathon bombings last month has only been in the works for a few weeks. In that time, the event team managed to pull together a star-studded lineup, from Aerosmith to New Kids On The Block, all performing for free. The venue – TD Garden - and even Ticketmaster.com also waived all fees in the spirit of charity. Somehow, Boston Strong worked and it worked well, with barely any time to organize. Acts included some proud Bostonians, as well as acts, who just performed out of solidarity for the city’s people. Acts like Jason Aldean, Dane Cook, James Taylor and Aerosmith, who flew in from Singapore, the latest stop in their tour, just to participate, reports Reuters.
“To say everyone is checking their ego at the door is a cliche, but it’s true,” said New Kid Donnie Wahlberg for Boston.com. “To walk down the hallway and bump into Carole King and have her say ‘Thank you. Your city is so great. . . . There’s no place for rock star attitudes tonight.”
The sole reason behind the concert was helping Boston and its citizens move on, and it looks like the event has been a huge success. At prices between $35 and $285, tickets had been sold out for weeks for the 17,500-seat venue, with net proceeds to be donated to The One Fund and, through it, victims of the bombing.
