Lady A gets countersued & Tonight’s ACM awards are on CBS

Seattle singer Anita White or Lady A, has countersued the band Lady A. She’s seeking unspecified damages and music royalties in a trademark infringement and unfair competition lawsuit. Two months ago the band sued her so they could continue using the name Lady A.

Tonight’s ACM awards are on CBS. The pre-show’s at 6 CT on People TV’s YouTube channel. Keith Urban will host and debut his duet with P!nk. The three venues tonight are The Ryman, Opry and Bluebird Café. Performers include Dan + Shay, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw, Maren Morris, Jon Pardi and Morgan Wallen. Blake Shelton will duet with Gwen Stefani and Trisha Yearwood will have a song tribute to those we lost in country this year.

If Carrie Underwood wins Entertainer, she’ll be the only woman with three. Fans used to be able to vote for Entertainer too then in 2016 the academy went back to deciding the winner themselves and they’ve picked all men ever since.

Finally - presenters tonight include Lauren Alaina, Clint Black & his wife and Darius Rucker.
