Jimmie Allen Tangos on the Season 30th Premiere of Dancing With the Stars

Did you catch the Season 30 premiere of Dancing With the Stars this week?

Jimmie Allen is among the celebrities kicking up their heels trying to win the competition – with the help of his dancing partner Emma Slater.

Week 1 had Jimmie and Emma tackling the very tough tango…

The judges handed out their scores – Carrie Ann Inaba – 6  Len Goodman – 5 Derek Hough – 6 Bruno Tonioli – 5, leaving Jimmie and Emma with a total score of 22. But all the judges praised Jimmie’s moves, and acknowledged that the tango is a very difficult dance to accomplish well.

Jimmie and Emma didn’t have the lowest score, and with fan voting we’ll have to wait until next week to see if Jimmie survives on the dance floor.

Of course Jimmie gets nothing but high marks when he’s singing – like his Top-20 (and climbing) hit song “Freedom Was A Highway” which he’s partnering with Brad Paisley on…check out the music video for the track here….

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.
