Some get lucky in Vegas: Jessie James and Erick Decker announced their engagement and swung by the NASHVILLE MUSIC MINUTE broadcast suite in Las Vegas during the ACM AWARDS week just the day after of their new anniversary date. Decker currently plays wide receiver position for the Broncos and James is signed with Show Dog/Universal and just released a brand new single. The photo may not show the whole glory of  the ring, but from what we could tell  - the brilliantly shining rock in her finger was HUGE! Congratulations to the new happy couple!  After Vegas James was off to promote the new single “When You Say My Name” which is already available on iTunes. You can also check out her new music video for the single on VEVO here.

Without a doubt , this year’s ACM AWARDS held in again in Vegas took the concept of Country Music Awards to an all new-level and raised the bar in many aspects of the production: most music numbers sported complex animated backdrops and  sets that resembled those in big0budget music videos. What can we say?  We can’t wait to see next year’s show!

The big wins of Taylor Swift for Entertainer Of The Year, Blake Shelton for Male Vocalist Of the Year and Miranda Lambert for Female Vocalist Of the Year as well as Album Of the Year were  by the excited and sometimes emotional wins such as by Thompson Square for Vocal Duo Of the Year, Scotty McCreery for New Artist Of the Year, Eli Young Band for Song Of the Year (“Crazy Girl”), Lady Antebellum for Vocal Group Of the Year and Jason Aldean & Kelly Clarkson took home both Single Record Of the Year and Vocal Event Of the Year with their  now ubiquitous duet “Don’t You Wanna Stay’. Congratulations to all nominees and winners!
