People Choose Garth, Faith

Garth Brooks was named Favorite Male Musical Performer Sunday night (Jan. 7) on the People’s Choice Awards, besting fellow country crooner George Strait and Latin heartthrob Ricky Martin. Faith Hill walked away with the trophy for Favorite Female Musical Performer, beating Shania Twain and pop queen Britney Spears. During her acceptance speech, Hill debuted a drastic new haircut, much shorter and blonder than her previous one. Award winners are chosen by a Gallup poll of Americans.
