Tonight is country music’s biggest night, when ABC broadcasts the Country Music Awards live from Nashville, Tennessee.
EMI’s Capitol Nashville roster will be well-represented, with Keith Urban nominated as Entertainer of the Year and for Album of the Year for his latest, “Defying Gravity.” He’s also featured in Brad Paisley’s nomianted Video of the Year.
Keith and label mate Darius Rucker are nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year as well. And years after his massive success with Hootie and the Blowfish, Rucker is getting a big welcome into the country music community with a nomination for New Artist of the Year for his foray into the country genre.
