Last night (September 09, 2014) Carrie Underwood with husband Mike Fisher attended the 8th Annual ACM Honors where she was presented with the Gene Weed Special Achievement Award, which honors Carrie for her charity work as well as her work on The Sound Of Muisc: Live. The Swon Brothers also sang ‘See You Again‘ and ‘Wasted‘. Carrie was emotional while excepting her award and later joked about it on Instagram:
“Had such a great night at the ACM Honors! Now everyone can go back to making fun of me for crying during my speech!”
I have added 13 high quality photos from the event, be sure to check them out!
Deadline — Fox is revving up Two Black Cadillacs, a six-hour limited event series based on the hit Carrie Underwood song. Underwood will executive produce the project, now in development, with Jerry Bruckheimer. Written by Ildy Modrovich (Necessary Roughness), Two Black Cadillacs, from Jerry Bruckheimer TV and Warner Bros TV, explores a murderous love triangle in the modern South. Or, as the producers put it, Hell hath no fury like two women scorned.
Written by Underwood, Hillary Lindsey and Josh Kear, “Two Black Cadillacs” was a platinum single from Underwood’s 2012 album Blown Away. In it, a wife and a mistress realize they are involved with the same guy and conspire to kill him. Here is the music video directed by P.R. Brown.
Underwood, Bruckheimer and Modrovich will executive produce Two Black Cadillacs with Jonathan Littman, while KristieAnne Reed will co-executive produce. The project reunites Modrovich with Bruckheimer TV. Modrovich got her start as a writer on the company’s crime drama CSI: Miami and also worked on the Bruckheimer-produced Eleventh Hour.
Underwood has a huge fan following, which helped NBC’s live staging of The Sound Of Music which she starred in to draw record ratings. Underwood, Modrovich and Bruckheimer TV are repped by CAA.

Yahoo — Carrie Underwood will soon have a little one at home to sing to. The country singer announced on Monday that she’s expecting her first child with her husband, Mike Fisher.
The 31-year-old shared her happy news on Labor Day, of course, posting a photo of herself with her two dogs, Ace and Penny, who had on “big brother” and “big sister” shirts.
“In honor of “Labor” Day… Ace & Penny would like to make an announcement,” wrote the “Mama’s Song” crooner. “Their parents couldn’t be happier!”
Fisher retweeted Underwood’s announcement, then followed with another post about baby names, writing, “We haven’t picked names yet but it’s looking like Fly is gonna fly. #boyorgirl #flyfisher.”
The American Idol winner and her retired hockey star husband, 34, met at one of her concerts in 2008. They tied the knot at the Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation in Greensboro, Georgia, in July 2010.
The adorable couple recently did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge together, getting a big soaking from a bulldozer. The songstress didn’t let on in the video that three of them were getting dunked.
Underwood was in no rush to start a family. Just last year, she admitted she felt that she was “too young” to become a mom.
“It’s so funny, I still think of myself I guess being much younger than I actually am,” she said to Marie Claire in June 2013. “I’m like, I’m too young to have kids when I’m 29 years old, so I’m really not [ready]. I have only been married two years. I really want to enjoy that and really figure that out a little better before we start throwing so much responsibility into that.”
However, she did have a number in mind. She told Access Hollywood in 2012 that Mike wanted a big family, while she felt that two kids was the right number.
“I think I’ll win that battle,” she said with a wink, though admitted she would also be open to adopting later on.
Well, she’s on her way to her first — and that in itself is wonderful news.
People — There’s no seven-year itch between Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley – the duo are back to host the 48th annual CMA Awards, for their seventh time.
In preparation for their return to the Bridgestone Arena on Nov. 5, Underwood, 31, and Paisley, 41, tried their hands at a game of country music trivia courtesy of the show’s reigning group of the year, Little Big Town. The prize? A collectors’ edition set of Brad and Carrie bobblehead dolls!
Since 2008, the Nashville regulars have danced, sung and joked their way through the annual event honoring country music’s biggest stars. (Remember when Paisley kissed Miss Piggy?)
And if the video above is any indication of what’s ahead for November, the CMA Awards countdown officially – and happily – starts now.
