The first No. 1 single is a celebrated milestone for any artist, but for Frankie Ballard, the second one is even sweeter.

"It's so exciting to have your first No. 1 song and you're like, 'Wow,' I just can't believe this is actually happening,' [but] there's a little voice in the back of your head that's like, 'What if this is the only time I'm ever going to get to experience this?'"

Hunter Hayes was more adorable than ever when he accepted the award for “Favorite Male Country Artist” at Wednesday night’s People’s Choice Awards.  But, the 23-year-old crooner feels a little bad that he beat out some of country music’s biggest stars, including Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan, and Brad Paisley.

“I'm going to get my butt kicked, I feel like. I think I really am,” he said while laughing about his big triumph with Et’s Brooke Anderson backstage. “I feel guilty because they are literally some of the nicest guys in our job and I'm lucky that I get to say that.”
