#1 Country Album --- On the country chart, Taylor Swift's Speak Now will remain at
number-one and Jason Aldean's My Kinda Party will hold on to its number-two spot.
It looks like Lady Antebellum's Need You Now could leapfrog the Country Strong
soundtrack, bumping it to four, but Zac Brown Band's You Get What You Give is
close behind at five.

ACM Artist reactions --- ACM AWARDS: Country Stars React
-The big story is Miranda Lambert's seven nominations, including the coveted
Entertainer of the Year nod. Following yesterday's announcements she told us, "I'm
just thankful that I've got my foot in the door as a nominee. Hopefully, with a lot
more hard work, one day I may actually win Entertainer of the Year."
-Kenny Chesney received the most ACM nominations of any male artist with five,
including Album of the Year for Hemingway's Whiskey. The nod was especially
important to him. He said, "It was important for me to push myself and my
audience while at the same time staying true to who I am as an artist, That's why
I'm so proud of this album and even more proud of the nomination for ACM Album
of the Year."
-Jason Aldean had a banner year in 2010 and the ACM recognized it with two
nominations -- Entertainer and Top Male Vocalist. He called in to talk about being
receiving such high praise at this point in his career. He said, "It's kind of made it
that much sweeter that we had to wait a little longer for it."
-Blake Shelton, who will also co-host the ACM Awards with Reba McEntire was
grateful for his nod in the Video of the Year category for "Hillbilly Bone" with pal
Trace Adkins. He said, "I know it's an off-camera award, but I'm really proud of
that nomination, because I think we did the best as we could do with that video,
Trace and I."
-Little Big Town's Kimberly Schlapman spoke on behalf of the band regarding their
nomination for Top Vocal Group, saying, "I hold my breath hoping for a nomination
every year. It was nice to wake up this morning and hear the great news."
-Jamey Johnson got a well-deserved ACM Album of the Year nomination for The
Guitar Song. He said, "The triumph of a gold-selling double-album is shared by my
family, my friends, bandmates, producers, my staff, my label, my booking agents,
my publishers, my management, my publicists, my handlers, my wranglers, my
fans, my dog, Willie's braids and that beautiful brunette in Toledo...And thanks to
the Academy voters for the recognition."
-Lee Brice may seem like a newcomer, but he's been working at his career for quite
some time. After hearing the news of his three ACM nominations -- Song (artist and
producer) and Single for "Love Like Crazy" -- he said, "It's such an honor just to be
nominated and such a boost personally after putting so much time and work into
-The Jane Dear Girls were surprised with two ACM nominations in two categories --
Top Vocal Duo of the Year and the previously announced Top New Vocal Duo or
Group. Susie summed up their feelings, saying, "To be nominated for ACM's Top
Vocal Duo of the Year is so overwhelming and I feel deeply honored to be in a
category with so many amazing artists."
-Left-of-center country boy Colt Ford was also surprised to hear his name called in
the Vocal Event category for "Cold Beer," which he recorded with pal Jamey
Johnson. He said, "I am so humbled to even be mentioned with the amazing artists
in this category. I promise no one is more grateful than me!"
-Keith Urban was among the country stars expressing their surprise and gratitude
on Twitter. He tweeted, "Goodness gracious! Absolutely beaming hearing the news

get the chance to actually 'say' thank you." Keith is nominated for Entertainer, Top
Male Vocalist and Vocal Event for being featured on Emily West's "Blue Sky."

Bryan, Luke --- Luke Bryan performed at a special concert with students from
various arts programs throughout Nashville as a part of the CMA's Keep the Music
Playing initiative. The program provides instruments and music labs to Nashville
schools by donating proceeds from the CMA Music Festival, which takes place every
year in June. This year's CMA Music Festival takes place June 9th -- 12th.

Dunn announced the end of the duo -- he's released a solo single and is readying

interests. Butter writes on, "The band is very proud of its work and
efforts together, and is parting on very supportive terms." Crystal adds, "Working
with Butter and Vinny has been an incredible experience, and I wish them nothing
but the best."

The big game means a big day for pizza makers. Super Bowl Sunday is Papa John's
busiest day. Officials of the chain predict they'll sell a million pizzas. To prepare,
they've shipped two million pounds of cheese and 350,000 pounds pepperoni to
distribution centers. At the Domino's Pizza chain, officials expect to deliver more
than 9 million slices Sunday. But pizza isn't the only big seller. Wings are another
Super Sunday favorite.

At least there's one thing Republicans and Democrats can agree on -- the Super
Bowl. Lawmakers in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania have a friendly wager on Sunday's
big game. Legislators from both parties in Wisconsin are uniting behind their Green
Bay Packers. The same in P-A, where the Pittsburgh Steelers are the favorite. The
Wisconsin side is wagering two pounds of 10-year-old cheddar, six pounds of
bratwurst and one case of Sprecher Root Beer. The Pennsylvania parties are putting
up four orders of Pamela's Pancakes, four Primanti (prih-MAHN'-tee) Brothers
sandwiches and one case of Iron City beer.

There's lots of snow this winter -- for a really big snowman. Vern Scoville has
topped his own record by building a 35-foot-tall snowman in northern New York.
The big, cold guys have become a tradition for Scoville. Last year's snowman
topped out at 25 feet. Scoville says building the giant snowmen is something for his
family and friends to do after the holidays. This year's Frosty has three black car
tires for buttons, an orange and white traffic cone for a nose and part of an old pool
for a top hat. A local TV station (WWNY) reports kids like to get their pictures taken
in front of Frosty.

The nation's capital has plenty of maps -- but an old is getting some new attention.
A Washington businessman has shelled out 1.8 million bucks for the first U.S. map
printed in the new United States of America. It was published in 1784, just six
months after the Revolutionary War ended. David Rubenstein bought the map at
auction in December. It'll be on loan to the Library of Congress.

It's a reason for Maine lawmakers to shout, "Whoopie." A legislative committee is
considering a proposal to make the whoopie pie the official state dessert. The bill's
sponsor, Representative Paul Davis, urges his colleagues to act quickly. He warns
that Pennsylvania might try to get a piece of the whoopie pie by claiming the treat
as its own. A whoopie pie is made of two soft chocolate cakes with fluffly white
filling in between.
The power of pork is coming to South Carolina. Researchers from Clemson
University are helping to plan a power plant that uses methane gas to fuel electric
generators. The methane will come from hog waste. Officials of Santee Cooper, the
state-owned utility, say the piggy power will produce enough electricity for 90

An Atlanta woman is looking to nail down her place in history -- with her very own
nails. Jazz Ison Sinkfield has been growing her fingernails for more than two
decades -- and recently passed the 20-inch mark. Each manicure, incidentally,
costs her 250 bucks. She admits that she's no longer able to tie her shoes or use a
computer, but hopes that her talent for talons can help her meet Oprah ... but
perhaps not shake her hand.

An immigration officer in the UK was so sick of his wife that he put her on a
terrorist watch list - ¬so she couldn't get home from Pakistan. The officer added
her name to the register of people banned from flights into the UK while she was
visiting family overseas. When she went to the airport to get her return flight back,
officials told her she could not board the plane and did not ¬explain why. She called
her husband, who ¬promised to look into it - but left her stuck in Pakistan for three
years while he had the "time of his life". The officer's scheme was finally discovered
by his superiors.

From Moses Lake, Washington, comes the story of Shirley Anderson who was pulled
over by the cops. After the officer informed her that she was wanted on a forgery
charge, she drove away. She hadn't gone very far when she decided the
best thing to do would be to flee the vehicle. Unfortunately, the car was still moving
when she decided to jump out. She was then run over by her own car. Her arrest is
pending while she's being treated in the local hospital.

A Florida man was arrested for assaulting his neighbor with a machete --after they
argued over the proper way to milk a cow! According to police, Sylvester Byrd and
the unidentified victim were engaged in a heated debate about the milking question
when Byrd had a cow and grabbed his weapon, slicing the neighbor's face. Byrd,
who says he was acting in self-defense, faces aggravated battery charges.
A woman in St. Petersburg, Florida, saved some time but lost some money on her
auto insurance -- by crashing her car into the office of the guy who sold her the
policy! Rescue crews found the woman and her two passengers uninjured inside a
Saab sedan that was wedged into the insurance office -- the third time a car has
crashed into the business.

Footballs used in the Super Bowl game in Arlington, Texas, will be marked with
invisible synthetic DNA ink to protect against counterfeiting, officials say. More than
100 footballs will be “tagged,” along with sideline pylons and even the coin used in
the opening coin flip. PSA/DNA Authentication Services plans to mark each ball with
a DNA strand only visible when illuminated by a particular laser frequency. “The
DNA ink has an astronomical 1-in-33 trillion chance of being accurately reproduced
by counterfeiters,” PSA/DNA President Joe Orlando said. “Many of the game-used
Super Bowl footballs are sold by the NFL through charity auctions,” he said, “The
certification combats potential counterfeiting and helps assure future owners that
each ball is genuine.” About 120 footballs are expected to be utilized in Sunday‟s
game between the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Charlie Sheen's parents want to take control of their son's personal affairs. Radar
Online says Martin and Janet Sheen are worried about the star and may ask a judge
to grant them guardianship over him. A source says, "Charlie looks awful... [He] is
coughing a lot, and he doesn't seem to care what he is doing to his body... Charlie
truly thinks he is invincible, and that he can do as much drugs as possible with no
ramifications... Martin and Janet know that it's highly unlikely their
[conservatorship] petition would be granted, but they are trying to do whatever
possible to save Charlie's life." Meanwhile, the star is expected to return to Two
and a Half Men in three to four weeks, according to TMZ. That's the plan anyway.

AMERICAN IDOL: Austin Auditions Tonight
Tonight, the American Idol auditions roll into Austin, Texas. We'll see some singers
who have made it to the Top 40, some angry auditions, and a woman who clucks
like a chicken. Ryan Seacrest tweeted that the producers are giving us an apology
at the top of the episode. We're guessing it's about the video with off-key Boy
Scout Chris Cordeiro. In a segment with Cordeiro's family, a young girl's nipple can
be seen. FOX has since censored the video. Clips of the slip have been pulled from
YouTube and other sites.
