American Country Awards Recognize New Country

Posted on 11 December 2012 by Bill West


AMAsVegas was alive for the 2012 American Country Awards and the usual take on awards for the biggest country stars was turned on it’s ear.

New country music star Luke Bryan put on usual backwards cap  performance and walked away with the most awards in the form of the blue Fender Telecaster trophy.   In fact the backwards cap (trucker or otherwise) looked like a theme for the night with Luke, Lee Brice, Kip Moore and others making the same fashion statement.

Big surprises came in the New Artist category with the award going to the lovable Lauren Alaina over the expected Hunter Hayes and the odd Breakthrough Artist guitar going to a deserving Jake Owen. Some categories seemed a bit forced like the single for new artist award and group/collaboration mash ups.

Still the ceremony lacked the broad star appeal of the CMA or ACM awards with A Listers Taylor Swift, Chesney, McGraw, Eric Church and Blake Shelton all absent.  What remained was a who’s who of artists just breaking through and on the rise.  One wonders what the FOX producers thought of Miranda’s shout out to her husband saying she was TIVOing the Voice.

Indeed, Luke Bryan had a great year and scored deserved recoginiton in at least seven awards.  The most of all the new country song artists.
