Some of the biggest country artists around took the stage at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville Monday night before a broadcast audience of more than 7-million on ABC. Soin case you missed the CMA Country Christmas special because of the Johnny Reid concert, here’s a quick recap withvideo of the highlights.
Jennifer Nettles hosted the show for her fourth time, and performed five times.She told The Boston Globe beforehand that she felt better about it this year – in 2012, she was nine-months pregnant.
The star-studded lineup featured songs by artists like Lady Antebellum, Kellie Pickler, and wait for it…Snoopy! Actually, all the Peanuts characters joined Nettles for the final song of the night, Winter Wonderland.
Unfortunately, Hunter Hayes couldn’t be in Nashville – but that didn’t stop him from performing! The 22-year-old sang an acoustic version of Let It Snow with his band from what ...

The 2013 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings kicked off yesterday, with matches continuing until the Men’s Final next Sunday afternoon. I enjoy watching curling (and Ron Burgundy), but I’ll admit I know very little about the game itself.

At least we’ll have a White Christmas this year. Last night, the City of Winnipeg dispatched about 300 pieces of heavy machinery to clear snow from major streets. But even that couldn’t stop standstill traffic on some routes this morning.
We also started the first Declared Snow Route parking ban last night. If you’re like me, parking bans can seem a little confusing – how do we know if or when we need to move our vehicles? So, I did a little digging on the City of Winnipeg website to share simplified winter parking rules with you.
Declared Snow Route parking bans (like the one currently in effect) mean we cannot park on snow routes between 12 a.m. and 7 a.m. until notified otherwise. Tickets are $100 (ouch!) and you could have your vehicle towed, too.
