Maybe you missed the news because they never show the VIDEO OF THE YEAR award on the television show, but my buddy Roman White should have won the top prize for film at last nights Academy of Country Music annual awards show. Roman directed 'Hillbilly Bone' by Blake Shelton, and featuring Trace Adkins.
His video lost to Miranda Lambert's, who led the 46th Annual Academy Awards winners with three trophies: Top Female Vocalist, Single of the Year and Video of the Year for her huge hit, 'The House That Built Me.' But it's our pal who makes the news around here. Go Roman! You definitely should have won like you did a couple of years ago for that cheatin' song by Carrie Underwood.
Check out Roman's incredible website here.
"Born and raised in a small suburb of Nashville, Tennessee, Roman White enjoyed a childhood filled with imaginative adventures, including his rise to world-renowned Bigfoot hunter. As an adult, he continues to use his penchant for the unordinary in his writing, directing and artistic endeavors," says his website.
"Working with such artists as Reba McEntire, Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus and Alan Jackson, Roman has been nominated for eleven Emmy awards and has taken home three in addition to winning CMT’s Director of the Year for 2007 as well as the 2007 ACM Award for Best Music Video along with numerous other industry honors for his directing and special effects work in television and film. He most recently directed all nine music videos for American Idol winner Carrie Underwood, including the number one video of the year for “Before He Cheats.” Roman is also hard at work on his first feature film documentary titled Big Boned and his first feature film PRIMAL."
