Those still holding on to hope that American Idol finalists Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery may one day make non-audible music together, should mark December 5 on their calendars with a giant, beating heart. Alaina and McCreery will both appear at the American Country Awards which air on FOX. Convenient! The annual fete will be hosted by Kristin Chenoweth and Trace Adkins, with scheduled performances by Pistol Annies, Blake Shelton, The Band Perry, Thompson Square and Eli Young Band. Fans can vote for each category—except Artist of the Year—from November 11 to December 2 on the show’s website.
It hasn’t been confirmed whether Alaina and McCreery will perform or present together, but we guess the fact that at the very least, they’ll be breathing the same Sin City air in just over 30 days is newsworthy in and of itself. It’s been a rough couple of days for music couples and tangentially related music couples alike, so for those of you that want to believe these underage country stars have a future together, we won’t stop you from making your own vision board. Because the Royal Wedding has come and gone, and you know there’s an impending Kim and Kris divorce special, we could use a lasting, red-blooded American wedding to close out the calendar year. Or just some cute red carpet pics.
