Fans everywhere are looking forward to the 2013 CMT Music Awards, which are coming up in June. The first country music awards show to let fans vote for their favorites, the yearly event also features live performances by some of country's biggest artists -- and this year is no exception.
What a week for the Pistol Annies. They released their sophomore album 'Annie Up' and celebrated by performing 'Hush Hush' on the 'Today' show. They also got the good news that their debut, the 2011-released 'Hell on Heels,' was certified Gold, which means it moved 500,000 copies!
Train's collaboration with Pistol Annie Ashley Monroe feels random, but the marriage of two very different vocal styles makes 'Bruises' a captivating listen. The forever sympathetic Monroe was a perfect choice for this class reunion-type song. While it might not be the official reason her solo album was pushed back to 2013, it's certainly a good reason.
