Billy Ray Cyrus is huge. I think we all know that. And, we also know that his daughter, Miley Cyrus, is massively huge. These are big stars, people. Big, big stars. And, they're hosting the Country Music Television Music Awards together.
It's like a father-daughter night, a father-daughter special event, a father-daughter shindig. I have special time with my daughter too, just the two of us, but we've never been asked to host the CMT Music Awards… maybe we're not as big as Billy Ray and Miley. It's sad, but I suspect it's true.
Anyway, they're hosting the awards on April 14, about a month from now. But if you're a country fan your night won't end when Billy Ray and Miley get off the stage; it'll keep going as CMT introduces a brand-new singing competition show from the nice folks that brought you the juggernaut that could, American Idol.
This new show features the judging talents of Naomi Judd, vocal coach Brett Manning, and songwriter Aimee Mayo. Better than that though, it's people doing duets. I think that's actually where they got the show's name, Can You Duet, from. It makes sense, right?
The CMT Music Awards are going to start at 8pm ET/PT and Can You Duet is looking to premiere round about 10:30. Plus, they both have websites! How sweet is that? The CMT Music Awards one is here and Can You Duet's here.
Now, do you wonder why I'm telling you all of this, plus the fact that Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson, Carrie Underwood, and oh-so-many other famous folks will be singing at the awards and then some not-so-famous ones on Can You Duet? Why do I ever tell you these things? Because we have a giveaway, of course!
In support of the CMT Music Awards and Can You Duet, we are giving away three prizes. First, there's a grand prize (and it is pretty grand if I do say so myself): a CMT Music Awards Hat, a CMT Music Awards T-shirt, a pair of CMT Music Awards sunglasses (sensing a theme?), and (hold on to your CMT Music Awards hat) an iPod Shuffle preloaded with songs nominated for a CMT Music Award. As Balki Bartokomous would say, "WOW!"
Then, there are two runner-up awards, which feature the aforementioned hat, the aforementioned T-shirt, and the aforementioned sunglasses (pretty much the same bunch of awesome, save the iPod Shuffle).
I know what you're thinking: "Can I duet? You just tell me how to duet and I'll be more than happy to." Well, the rules are pretty straightforward:
