Carrie Underwood was named The Country Artist of 2022 at Tuesday night’s (December 6th) People’s Choice Awards. In her acceptance speech, she made it all about the fans. “This whole night is all about the fans, and I certainly have just the most incredible fans. You guys have supported me for many years, especially out on the road this year. So, thank you guys so much for all the love. Thank you for this. What a wonderful early Christmas gift! I can’t thank you enough.”
Shania Twain performed a medley of her hits at Tuesday night’s People’s Choice Awards, including “Any Man Of Mine,” “That Don’t Impress Me” (exchanging Brad Pitt’s name for the present — and delighted — Ryan Reynolds) and “Man! I Feel Like A Woman” before accepting the much-deserved 2022 Music Icon Award.
I can’t think of a more iconic, smart and beautiful person to not impress all that much. Thank you for an amazing night, @ShaniaTwain ❤️ https://t.co/od2KsUoo2s
