    There’s too many country awards shows. Can’t they come up with another excuse for having a bunch of country singers perform in primetime?

    Here’s what they should do: have surprise duets instead of having people promote their singles. On the top of my wishlist would be a Josh Turner-Carrie Underwood duet on a Randy Travis song.

  • Mike

    Danny Gokey for best new male artist? Are you kidding me? NO WAY

  • Bee

    this award show is so pointless. the ACMs, CMAs, and CMTs are the only important ones. but of course fox wants in on the ratings action cus these get big numbers.

    anyway, hope carrie underwood sweeps :)
    especially after the CMA snubs

  • mcbridefan

    A) agree too many award shows –in the ‘all genre’ category + in specific genres

    B) yes I am a Keith Urban fan, but I find it odd this organization nominated him for top male artist yet not of the other categories for this show contain a nomination for him (touring, single, video, etc) ?

  • Kimberly

    What an odd list of nominees!

  • Me

    No love for Dierks Bentley? That man puts on the best concert I’ve ever seen.

  • Really?

    Cause Carrie and Taylor need more awards for the same formulatic music they put out which isn’t even real country. And why the hell do we need more country awards? REDUNDANT!

  • gleeishorrible

    Cougar Bait Casey James will sweep the show next year b/c cute white guys w/ average voices playing guitar
    = female vote supremecy.

  • Sam

    Unless these are the 1999 American Music Awards, Jewel for female artist of the year is a joke. Where’s Martina McBride and Kellie Pickler?

  • Cline

    Carrie for the WIN!

  • Daylee

    Nice to see little to NO Taylor Swift on here, finally.

    Carrie will sweep. Her CMA snubs will get her everything.

  • Rachael

    I hope Carrie sweeps! She deserves it after the whole CMA thing. Disappointed by the lack of BP though!

  • plus de facebook fan

    Unquestionably imagine that that you stated. Your favourite justification seemed to be on the internet the simplest factor to take into accout of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed even as other folks consider worries that they just do not realize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest as well as outlined out the whole thing with no need side-effects , people can take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thanks
