Shawn Johnson - CMA Awards 2012

Shawn Johnson hits the red carpet at the 2012 CMA Awards held at the Bridgestone Arena on Thursday night (November 1) in Nashville, Tenn.

The 20-year-old athlete wore an Amanda Wakeley dress for the event where she presented an award.

Shawn is currently practicing next week’s dance for Dancing With The Stars: All-Stars with old partner Mark Ballas — but just for rehearsals.

“Thanks for the well wishes. I will eventually need surgery to fix it properly , until then I am going to try my hardest to heal up and get back in the game by Monday. Thanks for all the love,” Derek wrote to his fans about his neck injury.

Shawn told Zap2It, “He’s going to be in all the rehearsals helping choreograph and making sure it’s under his control if he steps back in Monday. It’s still Derek in the rehearsals — it’s Derek‘s choreography, it’s Derek’s creative. Mark will just stand in as the rehearsal, the movement of it.”

“I’ve grown in the sense that I’ve allowed my influences to infiltrate my music more,” Taylor recently told USA Today. “Going into the studio with producers I had never worked with before was definitely a way of stretching musically. I knew I couldn’t make the same record twice. I mean, I could have, but I’m not going to. With my fans, I’ve established a level of trust, and part of that trust is that I really don’t want to bore them.”
