Former American Idol winner Carrie Underwood nabbedÂ the Triple Crown Award at the Academy of Country Music Awards this weekend, taking home the prize for her combined wins in the best female vocalist, entertainer of the year and newcomer categories. Taylor Swift, meanwhile, left the Country Music Awards without a single statue, despite being nominated for five awards.
Carrie Underwood is the first female artist to ever win entertainer of the year at the Country Music Awards twice. “I think I just got make-up all over Brad Paisley,” Underwood joked as she accepted her award. “Thank you God. Praise the lord.” Underwood lost out for best female vocalist to singer Miranda Lambert.
Lady Antebellum was the other darling of the night at the Country Music Awards, winning for best vocal group, best single and song of the year. Their win for best vocal group puts an end to a seven-year run for Rascal Flatts as previous winners in that category.

NewÂ judge Ellen DeGeneres won’t be the only major change in the next season of American Idol. The new season of American Idol will also reportedly be moving to 9PM on Fox when it debuts January 12. The reality TV singing competition is being shoved an hour later to make way for a new Fox drama series called Human Target.
American Idol was previously aired at 8PM on Fox, but will be moved to a 9PM slot for the new season debuting on January 12 and 13. The two night season premiere will air at 8/7c.
Fox has reportedly decided to fill the 8PM time slot with a new drama series called Human Target, described as being “based on a graphic novel about a bodyguard.” Can we say yawn?
Meanwhile, former American Idol winner Carrie Underwood is basking in the glow of her early Christmas present – an engagement ring from hockey player boyfriend Mike Fisher. Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher are now officially engaged and “couldn’t be happier” according to Underwood’s rep. No wedding date has reportedly been set yet.
Last night at the ACM awards, Miss Carrie Underwood made SURE everyone knew she was the queen…she won the coveted Entertainer Of The Year award. Her massive ballgown, however; the subject of hot fashion buzz pre-show, won Entertainer Of The Night for threatening to eat all of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Two of Snarkista’s fave American Idols, David Cook and Carrie Underwood hooked up a few weeks ago for a duet, doing the Fleetwood Mac classic “Go Your Own Way.” Classy Carrie illustrates why “Bikini Girl” got the ax early this season. Enjoy!!
Whomever thought that Jessica Simpson was gonna be a part of the Country Music Awards in Nashville Wednesday night has bats in the brain! Some can’t BELIEVE that Jess wasn’t nominated for Newcomer of The Year, didn’t present an award, and didn’t even GO to the CMAs. Why? Because Jessica isn’t taken seriously by the very serious powers-that-be in Nashville.
Papa Joe thought Jessica could revive her “career” by making the switch to country music, but this idea has turned out to be a flopper. Jessica’s country album is a yawner, and the songs she wrote are crappy. This is a singer-songwriter town, but you have to be a GOOD singer-songwriter to get any respect. Great for fans of country music, not great for Jessica. No amount of milkmaid dresses and cowboy boots can change that.
Carrie Underwood hosted the CMAs with Brad Paisley, and everyone knows that Carrie is not a Jessica Simspon fan. It’s quite within the realm of believability that Underpants banned Jess from the awards. It’s definitely something the diva would do, and would be another dig at Jess in their ongoing feud over Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo.
So…Jessica’s gonna have to go off, nurse her wounds, and if she wants to make it in country music: cut a decent album. It’s pretty bad when your hometown newspaper, The Dallas Morning News, gives you a scathing review. Oh, and one more thing- CUT OUT THE ONSTAGE BLABBERING ABOUT YOUR LOVE LIFE, JESSICA! Nobody wants to hear that shizz.
Oooh, there’s another reason to give a good-natured GRRR to Carrie Underwood today! Seems the country sweetheart is dating Dr. Travis Stork, one of Nashville’s MOST eligible bachelors…and a former “Bachelor” himself in 2006. Travis is finishing his residency at Vanderbilt University, and has been an ER doctor for awhile. His latest television venture calls the ER Doc and his colleagues â€˜Americaâ€™s medical dream teamâ€™. His fellow docs include Dr. Jim Sears, Dr. Lisa Masterson and Dr. Drew Ordon. Their show began in September. MANY a single Nashville girl has had an “emergency” requiring a Vandy ER visit in hopes of being treated by the sweet, handsome Dr. Stork.
There were sightings of the two several weeks ago, but it seems they’ve come out in the open with their relationship. They’ve been spotted out and about several times, and were in New York recently. The Associated Press reports that Stork presented her with a diamond ring on a necklace Monday night, and that Carrie’s given Travis unlimited backstage passes to her shows.
Okay, Underpants, lets try not to mess THIS one up. Travis is a great guy, and isn’t into DIVA. So try to keep your Underpanties out of a wad if things aren’t always PERFECT. Life’s funny that way. Roll with it, and be thankful a guy with so much going for him is smitten with you. Treat him right, or you’ll piss off a whole lot of your demographic in Nashville. ‘Cuz we LOVE our Dr. Feelgood!
Country superstar Carrie Underwood unveiled her wax sidekick at Madame Tussauds in New York today. Which one is the real Underpants? Hint: Wax-Carrie is wearing the fugliest dress. Real Carrie is wearing the fugliest shoes. They have identical personalities…so don’t get fooled, Jessica Simpson! We KNOW you still prank-call Carrie, but we won’t tell Tony Romo. Promise.
