This was the second year for the American Country Awards, a ceremony created by Fox to highlight country acts. All of the awards are the result of voting by fans, lending the show a populist flavor in comparison to similar awards shows honoring country music such as as the CMA Awards, the ACM Awards and the CMT Awards.
