With
more than seven million records sold and 10 No. 1 hits under his belt,
entertainer Jason Aldean just released one of 2012’s most buzzed-about
new albums, “Night Train,” which sold over 409,000 copies its first
week. The album’s first single, “Take A Little Ride,” has already had a
three-week reign at No. 1 and set multiple sales and radio airplay
records. He has sold out every show on his My Kinda Party Tour, and he
recently announced that he will play at least three stadiums in 2013.
Aldean swept the ACAs last year, taking home six awards, including
Artist of the Year. He is nominated five times this year.
Grammy
Award-winning country music trio Lady Antebellum’s current album, “Own
The Night,” debuted at the No. 1 position on Billboard’s Top 200 and has
spawned two No. 1 hits: “We Owned The Night” and “Just A Kiss.” In the
spirit of the changing seasons, Lady A recently released their first
full-length holiday album, “On This Winter’s Night.” They also wrapped a
headlining tour that traveled the U.S., Canada, Europe and Australia,
on which they were joined by more than one million fans in 11 countries
on three continents. They will release their first live film, “Own The
Night World Tour,” on Dec. 4. The trio has sold more than 11 million
albums across the globe, scored seven Grammy Awards and tallied six No. 1
hits. The group has earned six ACA nominations this year.
Multi-platinum
selling singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley has forged his own brand of
country music, combining classic country songwriting, influences of
bluegrass instrumentation and the energy of rock ’n’ roll.  Bentley’s
sixth studio album, “Home,” released earlier this year, debuted at No. 1
and has spawned three consecutive chart-topping hits, marking 10 career
No. 1 songs for Bentley as a singer and songwriter. His five previous
studio albums have sold more than five million copies and earned him an
invitation to join the Grand Ole Opry. In 2013, Bentley will hit the
road with Miranda Lambert for their headlining Miranda Lambert and
Dierks Bentley: Locked & Reloaded Tour, kicking off Jan. 17. He is
up for one ACA award this year.
Luke
Bryan recently celebrated three back-to-back platinum singles: “Country
Girl (Shake It For Me),” “I Don’t Want This Night To End” and “Drunk On
You,” all from his platinum-certified album, “tailgates &
tanlines.” The Leesburg, GA, native has achieved five career No. 1
singles and “tailgates & tanlines” has remained a Top 5 album for
all of 2012. He just wrapped his charitable “Farm Tour” endeavor, for
which a portion of the tour proceeds helped create college scholarships.
On the tour, Bryan performed for 100,000 fans in eight shows, doubling
the attendance record from last year’s run. Bryan will launch his first
major headline tour in early 2013, the “Dirt Road Diaries Tour.” He
earned seven ACA nominations this year.
Platinum-selling
group Little Big Town first entered the music scene more than 13 years
ago with hits such as “Boondocks,” “Bring It On Home” and “Little White
Church.” The band recently earned the biggest selling album debut of
their career with the release of “Tornado,” which sold 112,758 units in
its first week. The critically acclaimed “Tornado” remained in the No. 1
spot on Billboard’s Country Albums chart for five consecutive
weeks. The album’s two-week No. 1 single, “Pontoon,” has sold more than
one million downloads and their current single, “Tornado,” is their
fastest-rising to date. The group is up for one ACA award this year.
AMERICAN
COUNTRY AWARDS is executive-produced by Bob Bain (TEEN CHOICE 2012,
“Kids’ Choice Awards”). Fletcher Foster, Paul Flattery and Tisha Fein
serve as producers. Greg Sills is supervising producer. Michael Dempsey
will direct the live special.
