NASHVILLE NEWS & NOTES – MONDAY, APRIL 16, 2018!

Big night in Vegas last night!  It was the 53rd ACM Awards show and Jason Aldean is the newest Academy of County Music Entertainer of the Year.  Last night’s win came after a very tough year for Jason, who was on stage during the deadly attack on the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas last October.  He and several other artists paid tribute to the shooting victims at the start of the show.  Chris Stapleton won Male Vocalist of the Year, Miranda Lambert won Female Vocalist of the Year, Brothers Osborne won Vocal Duo of the Year and Old Dominion won Vocal Group of the Year.
Carrie Underwood is celebrating a big milestone after her accident five months ago.  She performed for her first time since injuring her face and wrist in a fall outside her home in the Nashville.
Congratulations to Chris Stapleton and his wife, Morgane, who welcomed twin boys last night.  Reba McEntire made the announcement during the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards.  Minutes beforehand, Chris won Album of the Year for ‘From a Room: Volume 1.’  The twins are joined by their older brother and sister.
