The CMA Awards are held to celebrate the best in country music, but it was pop stars Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor who stole the spotlight atWednesday's ceremony.
As we're reminded most recently by Gracepoint, Fox's so-so remake of the brilliant mystery series Broadchurch (shown here on BBC America), the British seem to have a knack for executing certain genres with more sophisticated aplomb. That includes the adult spy thriller, of which BBC America's six-part The Game (Wednesday, 10/9c) is an especially taut specimen.
Carrie Underwood took home the top prize at Wednesday's CMT Music Awards, winning Video of the Year for "See You Again."
The event, which took place at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, was hosted byVeronica Mars star Kristen Bell for the third year in a row.
George Strait was the big winner at Sunday's Academy of Country Music Awards, taking home the prize for fan-voted Entertainer of the Year.
After beating out Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert and the show's co-hosts Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton, 61-year-old Strait said, "Wow... I always said I had the best fans in the world and I heard this was a fan-voted thing, so I rest my case ... This is so amazing. This has been an amazing past 30 years." Strait last won the award in 1990.
