Voting for the 47th Annual Academy of Country Music awards officially began this morning at 9am.  Votes for “New Artist of the Year” will be an open interactive vote.  Voting will close Monday, January 30th at noon so you have exactly two weeks to vote for who you think should be this year’s award winner online. Semi-finalists include Brantley Gilbert, Hunter Hayes, JT Hodges, David Nail, Jerrod Niemann, Justin Moore, Scotty McCreery, and Thompson Square.  The awards will be broadcasted on CBS, Sunday, April 1st at 8pm.

As you know, last night were the Golden Globes and you caught them, you saw many movie and TV stars.  Brad Paisley said he is a big fan of Brad Pitt’s recent movie, “Moneyball” that was also featured last night.  He said, “They took a movie about sports statistics and made it something that women will love.  Well, they cast Brad Pitt.  So, that’s a pretty good idea.”  “Moneyball” lost to “The Descendants” for Best Motion Picture.

Be sure to send sympathy tweets and messages to Jake Owen.  He broke his collar bone snowboarding on Friday out in Colorado.  According to his comments via Twitter, he will not miss any shows.  Jake posted a picture along with, “Just broke my collar bone.  Guess I charged this mountain a little too hard.  Friday the 13th showed its face today.”  This is not the first time Jake has broken his collar bone.  When he was younger, he broke it falling off his 4-wheeler.

And, for all you ladies, Blake Shelton will cover the face of Redbook.  Blake was interviewed by the magazine and will be featured on their February cover which hits store shelves tomorrow.  Blake told Redbook he enjoys being married to Miranda Lambert by doing the simple things like making breakfast at home and being a good husband.  Blake stated, “I think you’ve got to be confident and a bit of a pushover.  Obviously, you’ve got to be a loyal person.”
