COUNTRY KUDOS

Late country icon Johnny Cash was the big winner at last night's Country Music Association Awards. Cash, who died in September at age 71, picked up three awards, including video and single of the year for "Hurt" and album of the year for American IV: The Man Comes Around. Alan Jackson was also honored with three trophies, including entertainer of the year, best male vocalist and vocal event of the year for his duet with Jimmy Buffett, "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere." Toby Keith, who came into the ceremony with a field-best seven nominations, was shut out. Meanwhile, the early reviews for CBS's three-hour CMA telecast are in — and they're good. "Can you get me a copy of the CMAs from last night," writes my brother David in an early-morning e-mail. "They were amazing!!!!!" Sure, Dave. I've got nothing better to do but sit around and make you dubs.
