2011-10-31 -   LADY ANTEBELLUM, JUSTIN MOORE, RICKY SKAGGS BIG WINNERS AT THE 17th ANNUAL INSPIRATIONAL COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS

Justin Moore, Lady Antebellum and Ricky Skaggs led the winners of the 2011 Inspirational Country Music Awards on Friday night. The Nashville ceremony -- hosted by GAC's Storme Warren and 'Inside Edition's' Megan Alexander -- not only honored country artists whose music serves a greater purpose, but it also benefited breast cancer awareness.

Skaggs took home the night's big honor, winning the Entertainer of the Year award. Lady Antebellum won the Video of the Year award. Dave Haywood accepted on behalf of the band.

 

"This was a really emotional song and definitely the most dramatic video we've ever made," he said. "We are honored with the recognition from the Inspirational Country Music Award voters and we just appreciate the support of our fans."

Moore was another of the big winners, taking home the trophy for Mainstream Inspirational Country Song. “This song is a gift from God,” Moore said, accepting the honor. “I can’t think of a better way and a better place to win my first ever award, so thank you very much and God bless you guys.”

Each of the 21 awards came with a pink ribbon tied around it, a nod to the Inspirational Country Music Association's highly publicized campaign to benefit the Tennessee Breast Cancer Coalition. Before the show, the stars walked down a pink carpet in tribute to the lives of Middle Tennessee breast cancer survivors.
