Blake Shelton Celebrates 20 Years of Austin

Blake Shelton Celebrates 20 Years of Austin

Blake Shelton is one of the hottest hit makers in country music these days, but in the summer of 2001 – as a newcomer – he had a song that would launch him into the spotlight, and now in 2021 – he’s looking back on his very first number-1 song, “Austin.”

Check out the video for “Austin”…

The hair is a little shorter – and a little grayer now – but Blake Shelton is still making music videos…like for his latest hit – “Minimum Wage.”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
