For the first time since 1990, George Straight won not only one Country Music Award Wednesday night, but three. He took away the highest honor of the night, winning Entertainer of the Year. Unfortunately for his fans, the 61-year old country star will be retiring from the road as he completes his The Cowboys Rides Away tour. His final tour will begin in January 2014 in Louisiana, and will go until the end of May, finishing up in Foxborough, Mass.
There was no clear favorite on the night at the 2013 Country Music Awards, as multiple artists won multiple awards. Blake Shelton, Keith Urban, Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw, and Florida Georgia Line all represent those who won two awards each.
The Pinnacle Award at the 47th annual Country Music Awards show went to the star studded, Taylor Swift. This prestigious awards goes to artists that bring their music to a world wide audience. The previous winner was back in 2005, and it went to Garth Brooks. The 23 year old will be taking her talents to London in 2014, but will she tour in the US? Swift will also finish 2013 by performing in Australia and New Zealand, which further credits her Pinnacle award. Her ‘Red’ album has already showed across the country, but Taylor Swift fans would never turn down another great show. Only time will tell!
Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert
Will other Country Music Awards 2013 winners take their talents to the stage in 2014? Country singer Blake Shelton, who won entertainer of the year last year, took home the male vocalist award as well as the album of the year. He has overall won a total of eight CMA Awards, and his wife, Miranda Lambert also took a trophy home. The country star won female vocalist of the year, matching her husband Blake. Shelton, who is a current coach on, The Voice, has a few shows scheduled for 2014, but no tour.
