        There are too many to count. Besides, something way better was on: the Canadian Juno Awards!!! Where else could u hear Drake, Justin Beiber, K’naan, Blue Rodeo, Michael Buble etc. Canada Rocks!!!

    • Love country

      Sounds like a great awards show!

    • sara

      seriously. enough already!

      • Kel

        Enough already of what? Although industry folks may not like award shows much, I think they’re fun to watch. Whitney, you’re amazing! Keep liveblogging!! Your wit is hilarious and spot-on. :D

        On a side note (and while I’m sure I’m in sole opinion on this), I liked seeing LeAnn on the show. She looked incredible. Say what you will about her, but she’s never been called a diva (or what-have-you) from what I heard, and the woman can sing. She’s awesome. Can’t wait for “Lady and Gentlemen”!

        SOOO glad Miranda and Lady A won!! The Academy should never again allow text votes for the biggest award of the night. ._.

  • Deborah

    I hope this is not going to interfer with Celebrity Apprentice

    • Stacy

      Different network, The Donald should still be on NBC at it’s regurlay scheduled time.

      I can’t wait for the inevitable “Taylor Swift Can’t Sing Live” debate…

  • Noah

    Not watching it. I’m 27 and country music of today absolutely blows. Give me Willie Nelson, WAYLON JENNINGS, and George Jones, the Old Country guard any day. I really want somebody to crash the CMA awards on live TV by busting out onto the stage playing Jennings’ classic ‘Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way?!’ That song applies more than ever to this modern trash called ‘country music’!

    • jj

      Jamey Johnson!

    • Mike in KC

      TOTALLY agree with you. This is NOT Country Music. This is “Pop” music pretending to be Country. See any of the legends of Country on the show…NO.

    • Thomas

      I totally agree with you! I really can not stand todays country music. It just does not have the “spirit” that it used to have.

    • Hugo

      Justin Tubbs song “who took the western out of country western music”.

      Song “There was a murder on music row”. Killed western music.

      Aloha, Hugh

    • Rich

      You all should check out Tom Baz then. I love the way he writes and performs, it’s down home, down to earth, and the songs actually have meaning and feeling.

    • Barbara

      so true…most of them can’t sing a lick. All you hear is loud music to cover their bad voices. Taylor Swift is the worst. Writes good songs, but she should let someone else sing them.

      • Naoma

        Sounds like sour grapes to me most people who make comments like yours are out and out just jealouse

    • Kai

      Love you Noah!! You are so right. I am sick sick sick of the crap they keep pushing as country music. Nothing but a pop sex show. I miss real singers who can play and harmonize and make memories.

  • Theresa

    Carrie Underwood and Miranda did amazing! I loved Carrie’s outfit so no need to always snip at Carrie. She rocks!

    • Royella Roessler

      I disagree. She looked very trashy in that dress

      • Sharon

        Trashy!! Royella…you don’t know what you are talking about…Carrie looked great!!!!! You must have been talking about Taylor Crap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Michael

    There is no debate about Taylor swift singing live. It is a verified fact that she cannot sing on key live. How many more award shows do we need to prove it to you?

    • Teresa

      Amen Michael! Taylor Swift is a horrible singer. She unfortunately will

      • Teresa

        win Entertainer of the Year since it is voted on by the public.

  • Noah

    That’s another thing. I HATE manufactured ‘stars’ like Swift is. That’s my biggest turn-off. The big drawing artists are ‘made’, ‘taught’ a certain way instead of being allowed to be themselves. Things have gone back to how they were before Waylon and others finally said “I’ve had enough of being told what to do. I’m doing my own thing!” We need somebody brave to stand up and do that again for this day and age and refuse to conform!

  • Brandon

    Did anybody catch Trace Adkins say “I can’t believe we won this” and then Blake Shelton say “what the hell do you mean you can’t believe we won?”

    • Ruby

      Yeah, I caught that too. Blake didn’t sound happy about that comment at all. I was wondering if I heard that right, but I rewinding it and yeah, that is what he said.

  • Joseph

    There is NO country music anymore. Everyone knows that. Why are there five (5) “country” music awards shows? Country music is long gone.

    • Rich

      It’s far from gone, it’s just playin’ live in small town bars, country fairs, festivals, and such. There is good, damn good, country music still out there if you know where to look. Right now Hollywood Pop Country is the rage but the good stuff is still out there. My favorite album right now is “The Kind of Man I Am” by an independent artist named Tom Baz. Check it out, it’s playin’ on your front porch kinda country.

  • Dave

    Noah….. 100% agree with you. I say WAYLON, Willie, Merle, George, Johnny and all them “old” guys before I was 27. The “new” once remind me of Johnny Paycheck, just change the words a little “Take the job and shove it”. You can guess which words.

  • Bill

    Say what you want about Taylor Swift but she can sit on my face anytime

    • Rick

      Totally agree…so long as she doesn’t sing.

  • Rob

    Amen brother…amen!!

  • Chris L

    Reba Rulz!

  • Chris L

    Everyone should vote George Strait for Entertainer of the Year–well-deserved!

    • Elaine

      No truer words spoken — George Strait is the ONLY country one out of this whole mess!! He just got my vote!

      • love the king GS

        I voted for King George he is the only true country singer out there. I LOVE HIM!!! Miss that type of country music.

    • Heather

      I disagree. I’ve seen George twice in concert and he doesn’t entertain me. He just stands there and strums his guitar once or twice a song. That’s it. I think Keith deserves that award. He is amazing in concert. To me that’s what the award should be about. And Carrie doesn’t have the stage presence to be TOTY winner, she’s still awkward on stage (seen her live too). No disrespect to George or Carrie, but EOTY should go to someone who entertains me!

  • Michael

    Laura Bell Bundy was terrible. I hate her grating voice. Annoying!

    • fluffytexan

      Laura Bell Bundy is a Britney “want-a-be” going country. That was the worst performance I have ever seen…..that was not country. How did she get on the program to begin with?

      • Maria

        fluffytexan=sounds like the green eyed monster of jealosy has raised it’s head.

    • Elaine

      No kidding! If that’s supposed to be country, stop the world and let me off! Unfortunately, I think it’s going to take a lot of distance to get away from that irritating sound!!

  • Noah

    Joseph, it’s still played, you just gotta get outta Nashville and go ‘underground’ to find it, and find the independent labels that the execs in Nashville probably wish would die tomorrow, but they can’t kill them because the independant country artists really ARE better!
