Top 5 Viral Searches From the 2014 ACM Awards
As much fun as watching the ACM Awards is, keeping up with what people are searching during the awards show may be even more entertaining. During the 2014 broadcast fans were eager to find out who was dating who, how a certain star lost so much weight and what hosts Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan were talking about when they said Jake Owen only has nine fingers.
Below are the Top 5 most searched phrases that landed on a ToC story, with a brief explanation of each. Searches for stars in bikinis and stars who were pregnant (there are none) just missed this list. As did requests to find out how tall Justin Moore is, if certain country stars are gay, and who Jason Aldean is dating now.
How Old is George Strait?
This search phrase showed up early and never really went away. Fans seemed to enjoy George Strait's two performances and were genuinely pleased to see him win Entertainer of the Year. But the pressing question was about his age. He's 61, but most fans landed HERE.
Tim McGraw (Feat. Faith Hill), 'Meanwhile Back at Mama's
Faith Hill's cameo may have been the night's only "No way!" moment, and given how often these two perform together it really wasn't that much of a surprise. Both looked stunning as they sang a new song from McGraw's upcoming album. Their chemistry was enough to convince us that despite the sporadic tabloid reports that say otherwise, everything is OK in the McGraw household.
Luke Bryan's Wife
Caroline Bryan is always a hot search during awards shows. In year's past the singer has been tearfully accepting major hardware, but all anyone wanted to know about was the hot blonde in the front row. She's a good looking woman, and during the ACM Awards she stood out again. Fans found all they need to know HERE. The mother of two made our list of Hottest Country Wives as well.
Lee Brice, 'I Drive Your Truck'
Lee Brice stole the show as far as performances go. His rendition of 'I Drive Your Truck,' coupled with the song's ACM win, sent searches for more about him and it into overdrive. Fans were able to find the entire song HERE, and learn the story about the lyrics HERE.
Jake Owen's Finger
Shelton and Bryan mentioned Jake Owen's missing finger during their opening monologue, and the internet went BOOM! All night long people were checking back to see what happened. They learned all about it HERE, but they got to see a gruesome photo of the missing digit HERE. Warning: It's ugly!
