The American Country Music (ACM) Awards took place on Sunday (6th April) in Las Vegas. Amongst the winners were Miranda Lambert, Kacey Musgraves and George Strait. Keith Urban also won two awards for his collaborative efforts with Lambert and Tim McGraw.
The American Country Music Awards were held on Sunday in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Miranda Lambert and Keith Urban won the most awards, two and three respectively, whilst nominees and fan favourites Taylor Swift, Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton lost out on numerous awards each.
Miranda Lambert juggled her three awards whilst posing for pictures at the ACM.
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.
Darius Rucker shot down a racist tweeter, who subsequently deleted their account.
Darius Rucker's racist tweet, directed squarely at the singer-songwriter for making country music, was the talk of Twitter this week. A user named pqkullman - who has since deleted his account - tweeted to Rucker, "Leave country to the white folk," following a discussion about the classic song 'Wagon Wheel,' written by Bob Dylan and finished by Old Crow Medicine Show.
Obviously offended by the tweeted, Rucker replied, "WOW. Is this 2013 or 1913[?]" adding, "Ill take my grand ole Opry membership and leave your racism. Wow." The former Hootie & The Blowfish singer signed off by tweeting, "Gotta go to bed this has been hilarious tonight.If any hater thinks I care what u think. I don't make music for u. So don't listen."
