Award shows are big rating winners for ABC and CBS.  So why can't FOX get in on the action?

The American Country Awards is a relatively new award show compared to the more established CMA Awards and the ACM Awards.  Created by FOX back in 2010, this fan voted award show had "decent" ratings last year.  The truth is, people love award shows.

Look for Trace Adkins and my favorite, Kristen Chenoweth to return to host the third annual ceremony.  Expect lots of music on tonight's show.  Performances include, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum and Dierks Bentley.

The American Country Awards airs on FOX 40 Monday night from 8-10pm.
