Legendary band KISS crashed the red carpet of the Academy of Country Music Awards this past week to remind fans of their upcoming album, "Monsters" and their tour with Motley Crue that starts on July 20. They also dished on their love of country music saying that it comes "from the heart."
On to another award show, the Tony's announced that this year's host will be none other than sitcom star Neil Patrick Harris. This will be the "How I Met Your Mother" star's third time hosting the award show honoring the greatest Broadway has to offer. Already showing off his comedic timing, Harris joked that he hopes to "score some free house seats to a show...or five!"
In even more award news, Canada's 41st annual Juno Awards honored Michael Buble's "Christmas" with Album of the Year and Adele's "21" with "International Album of the Year."
Speaking of Adele, the six-time Grammy winner told French radio network NRJ that she expects to have a new song out at the end of the year.
While we anxiously await new work from the star, fans are still enjoying her award-winning "21" as it sits at number 3 on the Billboard 200.
Topping that chart is a battle of two 80's icons, Madonna and Lionel Ritchie. Madge's "MDNA" came out on top and snagged the number one spot while Ritchie's "Tuskegee" takes number two.
