  1. They were trying to do something different with the first American Country Awards Monday on Fox.

    And really they did. Underwood won her second country music artist of the year award of 2010 in Sin City on Monday night. She earned it at the inaugural American Country Awards about eight months after she won the top honor at the Academy of Country Music Awards in April.
    in the American country award i just like Carrie Underwood’s outfit…love the red color..
