Kenny Chesney: Entertainer of the Year



For the third year in a row, Kenny Chesney was named Entertainer of the Year at the 42nd Annual Academy Of Country Music Awards. Other honorees included George Strait and Carrie Underwood, while Brooks and Dunn took home an unprecedented fourteenth award for Top Vocal Duo.

The AP continues:

Veteran singer-songwriter Bill Anderson...seemed touched that older artists weren't forgotten. "I'm old enough to be Carrie Underwood's grandfather," the 69-year-old said of the 24-year-old singer.

"I would not be here if it were not for 'American Idol,'" [Underwood] said as she collected her vocal award. "Thank you, fans. God bless you."
