'Nashville Star' Celebrates Record Ratings for Season Five Finale and Show Veterans Miranda Lambert and Chris Young Garner a Combined Three ACM Nominations Including Top New Male And Female Vocalists

Miranda Lambert's Debut Album 'Kerosene' Also Reaches 1 Million Albums Sold

LOS ANGELES, March 6 -- On the heels of record-breaking ratings, "Nashville Star" is celebrating the success of show veterans Miranda Lambert and Chris Young, who earned ACM Nominations today for Top Female Vocalist, Top New Female Vocalist and Top New Male Vocalist. Additionally, Miranda Lambert, who recently earned her first Grammy nomination, just achieved Platinum status for her debut CD "Kerosene."

"The past week has signified everything we hoped to achieve with 'Nashville Star,'" said executive producer Ben Silverman. "The show resonates with television viewers and country music fans because it produces stars and we couldn't be prouder of Miranda, Chris or our newest star Angela Hacker."

Last Thursday more than 3 million viewers tuned in to USA Network as season five winner Angela Hacker beat her baby brother Zac Hacker to win the title of "Nashville Star" and thereby earn a record deal with Warner Bros. Nashville, a brand new Chevy truck and the chance to perform at the Grand Ole Opry. For the single mother of an 8-year-old son, this was Angela's dream come true and an incredible rags-to-riches story for both her and her brother. Angela's CD will be released on April 3.

The season finale of "Nashville Star" was the #1 most watched program in basic cable primetime with an 11% increase from last year's finale among adults 18-49 (1.4 MM) and strong numbers among adults 25-54 (1.4 MM), total viewers (3.0 MM) and households (2.24 cvg rating).
