Thank You Country Radio! Country Stars Show Radio Love When Winning ACM Awards

It's become the norm from The Band Perry to Lady Antebellum. As Country radio's biggest stars get up on stage to accept awards, as they did last night, they always remember to thank country music radio stations across the country that play their music. Last nights Acadeny of Country Music Award ceremony on CBS was filled with new artists, their music played on country radio stations every day. Some stars starting out as unknowns, and thanks to country radio, become big stars winning awards on national television like they did last night.

Lady Antebellum won top vocal group and best album for "need you now". Miranda Lambert and The Band Perry were also big winners. Kenny Chesney and Keith Urban were shut out despite 8 nominations between them. Country DJ's from around the country could be heard announcing on CBS as the network went into commercial breaks. The Country music relationship with radio stations across the country is one that has been successful for so many years, a relationship that seems to work very well for both sides.
