NASHVILLE, TN Friday Dec.15.2006 / -- The votes are in for the Top 50 Videos of 2006, and Great American County (GAC) will start counting them down on Christmas Day. For five consecutive nights, GAC will showcase portions of the Top 50 Videos of 2006 as voted by viewers on

Top country music artists Little Big Town, LeAnn Rimes, Keith Anderson, Sara Evans and Josh Turner take turns as guest co-hosts and chat with GAC's Nan Kelley as they learn where their own videos reside on the countdown.

"This program is similar to our weekly Top 20 Country Countdown because it gives the fans control over how their favorite artists are ranked and what they see during the show," says Sarah Trahern, senior vice president of the network.

"The fans have been passionate about spreading the word about their artists being in the countdown all year, so we hope they enjoy the final results."

On Monday, current Grammy-nominated guests Little Big Town join Kelley to reveal numbers 50-40 and tease the audiences with a sneak peek at Tuesday's list. Each successive evening, Kelley and her guests divulge a bit more of the countdown, culminating in Friday night's finale, when GAC viewers will see the year's Top 11 music videos and learn which artist holds this year's coveted #1 position on the countdown.

"It was a blast for us to co-host the Top 50 Videos of 2006-Nan Kelley is hilarious off-camera and a pro on-camera," said Little Big Town's Phillip Sweet, who gave Nan Kelley a special nickname after their taping. "The crew at GAC is lighthearted and fun. It was a really great experience!"

GAC's Top 50 Video of 2006 premieres each night Dec. 25-29 at 8 p.m. ET. The countdown will air in its entirety on New Year Eve, starting at 1 p.m. ET and again on Jan. 1 at 6 pm ET. Viewers can also keep track of where their favorite artists' videos reside on the countdown by visiting
