2012 ACM Award for Single Record of the Year – ‘Red Solo Cup’
Toby Keith didn't sell more singles of this song than any other in the genre, but had the Top 10 hit been released at the beginning of 2011 instead of in October, he would have. 'Red Solo Cup' ended up on 'Glee' and went viral with everyone from kids to grandparents introducing their version to YouTube viewers.
This song will win if: ACM voters don't decide that such a silly song isn't worthy of such a high honor. The singer has admitted that this is a stupid song, but it's also impossible to get out of your head. Sometimes stupid is good.
