1235479-taylor-swift-woman-of-the-year-617-409It seems like forever ago since Taylor Swift’s Red Tour, doesn’t it?  Believe it or not, it was just last year.  The country / pop superstar has got to be planning something.  Every time she goes on tour, she sells out each venue within minutes.

Her “Swifties” pay big bucks to see her, no matter where she goes.  She sells out football stadiums on back to back nights…. not many other musicians, singers or bands can say they’ve done that!

To all those that have been patiently awaiting another tour, you’re not alone.  A Taylor Swift tour is just what we need this summer.  It’s been a few years since Taylor has done an arena tour (strictly arenas).  She has been touring at stadiums and a mixture of stadiums and arenas.  No problem selling out each show of course.  The tour page on Front Row King (Taylor Swift Tour Dates) looks so empty and sad!

Please Taylor, don’t make us beg!

Country singer Kenny Chesney received a whopping eleven nominations for the 43rd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, including Entertainer of the Year for the fourth consecutive time.

Kenny Chesney’s star is shining bright at the Academy of Country Music Awards this year. He is leading the nominations, with nods for Entertainer of the Year, Top Male Vocalist, as well as Song and Video of the Year for “Don’t Blink.”

He received another two nominations in the Album of the Year category for singing and producing “Just Who I Am: Poets & Pirates;” two more for single Record of the Year for singing and producing “Don’t Blink;” and another two for singing and producing “Shiftwork” in the Vocal Event of the Year category.

Should the 39-year-old singer-songwriter receive the entertainer of the year title, it would be his fourth consecutive win.

Chesney’s “Just Who I Am: Poets & Pirates” was released in September 2007 to great success, both critically and commercially. It made its debut on the Billboard 200 at No. 3.

Second-best at Tuesday’s nomination announcement was Rodney Atkins, who received six nods of his own, including for Top Male Vocalist, Song and Video of the Year for “Watching You” and Album of the Year for “If You’re Going through Hell.”

Brad Paisley, Big & Rich and Sugarland each received four nominations.

Paisley is vying with Chesney and Atkins in the Top Male Vocalist category and has also been nominated for Entertainer of the Year. His “5th Gear” earned him an Album of the Year nod, while “Online” received a nomination for Video of the Year.

Big & Rich and Sugarland are competing against each other in all four nominated categories: Top Vocal Duo, Single Record, Song and Video of the Year.

The nominations were announced Tuesday morning by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood on CBS’ Early Show via satellite from Nashville. Fans will be able to vote for their favorite entertainer in the respective category, for the first time ever.

The 43rd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards take place in Las Vegas on May 18. It airs live on CBS.

This year marks 15 years since Kenny Chesney signed his first recording contract. Since that time, he’s become one of the top stars in the business, with a long line of hits, a shelf full of Entertainer of the Year awards and an impressive record at selling out concerts in arenas and stadiums.With that behind him, Kenny’s scheduled to be profiled tonight on the A&E channel’s Biography series.

“I think it’s too soon for this sort of thing,” Kenny suggests. “There’s still so much to do. But I know they spoke to the people who had a lot to do with how we’ve accomplished what we have, and everyone who works with me came away feeling like they were really trying to get at not just how we did it, but why the fans have responded to me and the guys and this music in the way they have.”

Kenny Chesney Country Music Superstar!Kenny’s won the Academy of Country Music’s Entertainer of the Year award three straight times, so it’s a good bet his name will be among the finalists again Tuesday when this year’s nominees are announced. Meanwhile, he’s planning to hit the road next month for his Poets & Pirates Tour, which kicks off April 18 in Uncasville, Conn.

“I think it’s pretty simple,” Kenny says, explaining his philosophy. “Cut the songs I’ve always lived or seen my friends go through, because I knew lots of other people just like me and my buddies had lived them, too. Then take it out on the road, give people the time of their lives, do a show that gives everything, makes people forget, and know people will always come back to a good time.”

Tickets for Kenny Chesney and other Concerts are available online at Front Row King. Need help planning a wedding or party? Party Fun 411 is a great wedding planning and party and event resource!
