With key nominations, Chris Young leads Academy of Country Music Awards youth movement
Carrie Underwood kicked off the Academy of Country Awards with a hard-charging blast of rock 'n' roll and a sexy black and magenta mini-dress.
Underwood's single "Good Girl" was a warning shot to those looking for a lot of twang out of Sunday night's awards in Las Vegas.
The ACMs are a celebration of what country has become with arena rockers like lead nominees Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean being joined by a wave of 20-something upstarts who've incorporated new sounds into the genre. Non-country acts like KISS, Marc Anthony and LL Cool J were scheduled to join in the fun.
