Although another name for the awards could be called `2010 Miranda Lambert Awards` Let`s get it started:
Let’s start off with the big one, the one that everyone looks out for. And for the first time in a while, the line up looks different. 3 first timers make the list (Lady A, Miranda, and Zac Brown), and although they all did extremely well this year, I don’t think this is their time. Brad Paisley is long overdue for the award, and it looks like he’s going to finally take it home. However, I feel that Carrie should have been nominated and could have won it.
As opposed to the Entertainer of the Year category, this category is exactly the same, with most of the women having great years. Martina probably had the least impact this year, and we can count her out. Taylor: what to say about her. She a worldwide phenomenon, however, she was pretty laid back for most of the eligibility, so she’s probably not going to win either. That leaves us with Reba, Miranda and Carrie, and although Reba had a great year, she didn’t have the same success that Carrie or Miranda had. And with the critical and commercial success she had this year (along with 9 nominations), it’s looking as if Miranda has the greatest chance of winning.

Kid Rock is one of those odd people who I'm never quite sure whether I should write about him or not. On the one hand, most of his music is pretty rockin' without a hint of country, but on the other he sort of hangs with the country crowd, is good friends with Hank Jr., and has, of course, recorded country songs (or at least songs that have played on country radio) in the past so I guess it's probably easier to just go eenie meenie miney mo when it comes to a Kid Rock story.
This just happened to be a mo story.
Kid Rock will be turning the big 4-0 in January and to celebrate the momentous occasion, Kid's gonna get roasted - as in a bunch of celebrities are gonna gather around and make fun of him while the rest of us get to uncomfortably giggle in the comfort of our own homes.
Now this should be fun.
At Kid Rock's annual Halloween party on Saturday night the secret was let out of the bag that he would be the subject of a Comedy Central roast on his birthday, January 17, at Detroit's Fox Theatre. On top of the public humiliation roast, Kid's also planning to have a special birthday concert in Detroit with a few of his celebrity friends also performing. The birthday concert will be performed at Detroit's Ford Field which will be renamed "Forty Field" in honor of the occasion.
Despite the fact that Kid's a rocker, I'm thinking his birthday bash and roasting may very well turn into quite the country event. Who do you think might show up?
So whatcha doin' next spring break? Got any big plans? Maybe taking the family to a water park? Taking a vacation to a national park? Staying home and listening to the kids whine about being bored? Well how about stepping aboard the party barge and taking a cruise with Kid Rock?
Yep, Kid Rock is getting ready to kick off his inaugural Chillin' the Most Cruise which will head out from Tampa, Florida to Grand Cayman for a 4-day floating party aboard the Carnival Inspiration starting April 29, 2009.
Not a Kid Rock fan? That's okay, just keep checking his cruise page because he's going to be announcing some big name entertainers that'll be along for the boat ride in the coming months.
No guarantees any of the performers will be country, but with Kid Rock you never can be too sure.
Oooh, oooh, battle of the Twitterers and non-Twitterers. Sounds fun.
Seems everyone is jumping on the Twitter bandwagon, but leave it up to Kid Rock to ruin all the fun.
COUNT Kid Rock out as a fan of Twitter. "It's gay. If one more person asks me if I have a Twitter, I'm going to tell them, 'Twitter this [bleep], mother[bleep]er,' " the shaggy-haired rocker tells Rolling Stone. "I don't have anything to say, and what I have to say is not that relevant. Anything that is relevant, I'm going to bottle it up and then squeeze it onto a record somewhere."
Eeek, it's gay? Harsh. I'm seriously hoping Blake Shelton decides to Tweet about this.
OMG you guys! I have totally got a brilliant idea. Battle of the beers. And battle of the beer promoters. Yeah baby.
I was going to tell you all about Kid Rock's new brew, American Badass Beer (or ABB for those who wish to not order a beer with ass in the name), which started being brewed and kegged on Saturday, July4th, and how the brewery got tax cuts that allowed them to use $7 million to create this beer and how it's going to create 349 jobs statewide in Michigan. Yeah, that's what I was going to talk about until I read this little blurb from an interview Kid Rock did.
"People that like premium beers and Guinness is their of choice, they will not like this. I want this to be like the beer I drink (see right). You grab it, you share it with your friends, it's refreshing, it's cold, it gives you a good buzz. Done."
Kid Rock also said print ads for the beer take shots at Budweiser and Corona, but not Coors, one of his former endorsers.
"No, not Coors," Kid Rock told the Detroit News. "Coors was very good to me."
Take shots at Corona? As in Kenny Chesney's Corona? You see where I'm going? I'm now ready to see a battle of the beers, Kenny versus Kid Rock, Corona versus Badass Beer. I see beaches, Cancun, bikinis and tanned muscular men, loads of free beer (for the taste-off of course), and one large stage for Kenny and Kid to perform on.
Wow, got lost in the moment there. Anyway, Kid Rock's ABB is expected to make its debut at his concerts at Comerica Park in Detroit, July 17-18.
If there's one thing I've learned while blogging about the stars it's that the world of celebrities moves a hundred mile a minute. It's crazy how quickly things seem to change. So imagine my surprise when I'm surfing through the tons and tons of news I've got to go through and come across another story about Kellie Pickler and Kid Rock dating - and it's from today.
Really? Shouldn't this story have died out like five or six days ago? Well at least this story was touting the official confirmation that the two AREN'T an item.
Can I just get a "thank the Lord" to that?
Gadzooks. It's amazing how much mileage this story has gotten. Well Kellie's publicist tells The Tennessean that Kellie never has dated Kid Rock.
Though a tabloid recently "reported" that Kellie Pickler and Kid Rock are dating, Pickler's publicist protests, saying there is no truth to the story.
So … not dating, haven't dated. That's the official word.
Kellie joins a formidable list of celebrities not dating Kid Rock. Others not romantically involved with Rock include Cameron Diaz, Venus Williams, Taylor Swift, Mork & Mindy's Pam Dawber and embattled South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford. We will keep you up to date if anything changes.
I sure hope The Globe lets this story die a needed death now. Oh, and in case you need further proof, my radio buddy Broadway got into the act and got a little inside information on the whole subject. Check out his interview here.
Whoa! Color me totally shocked. I made fun of the story The Globe had up about Kellie Pickler and Kid Rock dating because it seemed so far-fetched, especially because she's been dating Kyle.
Well thanks to Idol Stalker we have this video of Fox News saying Kellie admitted the relationship in a radio interview last week.
Holy smokes, where is THAT audio? Take a look at the video while I do my blogging duty by seeing if I can dig up the interview.
Update: Okay, not so exciting. Fox is I assume talking about the cryptic radio interview Kellie did last week where she says she's got a man but never mentions a name. I still think she was talking about Kyle Jacobs, the same guy she Twitters all her sweet Twitters to. Whew.
Sorry folks, sometimes the jokes just write themselves and I'm at the mercy of my sense of humor (love you Kellie).
Kix Brooks, Kid Rock, and Kellie Pickler hang at this weekend's BamaJam.
