Goin’ country

Gazette staff April 3rd, 2013

Oklahomans love ’em some country music! Come Sunday night, the 48th annual Academy of Country Music Awards will illustrate that fact perfectly, with Okies well represented, from presenters and performers to nominees.

Tishomingo resident and The Voice judge Blake Shelton will co-host the show, while he and his better/hotter half, Miranda Lambert, are both up for Entertainer of the Year.

Other Oklahoma nominees include Carrie Underwood for top female vocalist and album of the year, while Toby Keith is in contention for male vocalist of the year.

Even Oklahoma buildings are up for awards. The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tulsa and WinStar World Casino in Thackerville are nominated for casino of the year, and Tulsa’s BOK Center is a nominee for best music venue.

Who knew those were even categories?

Oh, well. More recognition for us.
