Taylor Swift's upcoming performance on the 2013 CMA Awards with an all-star band consisting of Alison Krauss, Vince Gill, Sam Bush, Edgar Meyer and Eric Darken won't just be cool for fans. According to the singer, it will be "life-alteringly cool" for her, too.
Taylor Swift is nominated for a whopping six awards at the 2013 CMA Awards, and even if she doesn't nab any (which is almost impossible to foresee), she's ensured to go home with one -- the prestigious Pinnacle Award.
Taste of Country is your source for behind-the-scenes highlights from the 2013 CMA Awards in Nashville. The interviews, the backstage reactions and the red carpet fashion show are all part of what you'll find in this collection of videos.
Predicting who will win the nine major honors at the 2013 CMA Awards seems pretty easy ... until you begin to overthink it. Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton and Kacey Musgraves lead the way in number of nominations, but it's not far-fetched to imagine all three coming away empty-handed. This is the sort of stuff that happens when there's two months to mull over the possibilities.
Blake Shelton has power. The singer, who is nominated for five CMA Awards this year and who is also the "winningest" coach in 'The Voice' history, was able to get the reality show's live schedule changed in order to avoid a conflict with the 47th annual CMAs. How did he do it? He exercised the equivalent of feminine wiles. And he begged. And pleaded. And cried.
The 2013 CMA Awards nominees have been announced, with stars like Jason Aldean and Taylor Swift once again leading a pack of talented Entertainer and Male/Female Vocalist of the Year contenders. The reveal included one big surprise in the Entertainer of the Year category, as George Strait earns a nomination for the first time since 2009.
