LUKE BRYAN SAYS ACMS WERE RUNNING LONG BY THE TIME HE WON

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- If it seemed that Luke Bryan didn't get his full moment in the spotlight after winning entertainer of the year at the Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday, you're right on target. Bryan says even though he had just won the big award, he was given only 18 seconds to make his speech. He says Blake Shelton rushing the stage to celebrate with him was Shelton's way of cutting Bryan's speech short, because the show was already running long. Bryan says he wouldn't have wanted it any other way and calls Shelton's move a "perfect situation altogether."

BLAKE SHELTON RECOMMENDS LUKE BRYAN FOR HIS JOB

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- If Blake Shelton ever takes a break from "The Voice," he thinks Luke Bryan would be an excellent replacement. He's just not sure that Bryan is as lazy as he is. Shelton says a musician has to give up touring to do the show, and after 15 years of being on the road, he was ready to sit in one spot for months at a time. Shelton keeps in touch with most of the people who have been on his team, so much that he feels like he's adopting half of them. Shelton says he can't be in the trenches with the contestants and just set them loose when the show ends.

RANDY TRAVIS ISSUES THANKS FOR OUTPOURING OF SUPPORT

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Randy Travis has written an open letter thanking fans for their support following his unexpected appearance at the Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday. Travis suffered a stroke two years ago and is unable to speak. He writes on his website his fiancee', Mary, reads every card and letter to him and they've gotten him through the darkest days.
