    Should have been 8 for Miranda, they forgot album of the year somehow.

    • ALM

      Wasn’t it nominated last year?

    • Doug

      Revoultion was released in Sept 2009 so it may not have been eligible for this year’s award. But what a great album it is!

      • Sondra

        you aaltcluy left out the best pic (the nude one ). I don’t think you’re right about it being targeted towards teenage girls because of that. As much as I like to see Miranda nude, she has done it a lot recently. three in the iD-Summer thing, one in this, and some in the new GQ

      She got last year.

    • Matt

      It won Album of the Year for 2010. It was released before the eligibility period, anyway.

  • Bee

    CANNOT believe the ACMs snubbed carrie for entertainer of the year also. WTF. such bull.

    • Nat

      I can.

  • T

    Would love to see Miranda win Entertainer of the Year and Jason Aldean win for Male Vocalist! Love those two. Was hoping the see Jason’s duet with Kelly up for vocal event of the year – anyone know if that was even eligble? Sugarland is definitely my pick for duo and video – that Stuck Like Glue video toed the line of campy and just crazy enough to be fun, so here’s hoping it wins. Vocal group is a tough ‘ol category, isn’t it?? LadyA, LBT, The Band Perry, and Zac Brown… wish they all could win that one. Will be interesting to see who takes it home. Looking forward to watching the ACMs!

    • JJ

      I’m sorry, but I do not think Miranda Lambert deserves Entertainer.

  • JJ

    Miranda Lambert is getting to be way overawarded. Overrated IMO.

    • Amy

      I agree 100%. I never liked her, but all this acclaim is ridiculous.

    • Matt

      I have loved her since her first single and she deserves every bit of acclaim she is getting.

      • Yamila

        Ok I am sure this is not the most aoappprirte comment, but if Carrie was wearing those shorts she had on during American Idol, she could sing the phonebook and I wouldn’t care. That girl has some legs son. She ain’t gonna fade away either. Right now Carrie is country music royalty and that doesn’t look to change anytime soon.Both ladies are awesome. I agree Carrie is definitely in the same realm as Faith and Miranda is an up and coming Gretchen. One you would take home to momma and one you would take to a kegger with your friends.I am taking my wife to see Miranda at the Verizon Amphitheater in Alpharetta GA this coming Saturday and I am really looking forward to the show. I will try to reply back afterwards with my thoughts.Like or Dislike: 1  0

    I feel bad that Carrie Underwood was not nominated for Entertainer of the Year.

  • dipshat

    Country music *shudder*

    • Matt

      So go waste your time elsewhere. What kind of idiot takes the time to post a comment at an article they care nothing about?

  • Mike

    Jason Aldean for entertainer of the year???? WHAT?! That has to be a joke… Also, Eric Church has been around since 2006 and had a top 10 album then.

    Miranda Lambert is being wayyyy overhyped. How does one artist get two videos nominated?

    Not a very good job with nominees on this thing

  • yournightmare

    AOTY and EOTY is Taylor Swift.

    • Natalie

      Taylor doesn’t need this stupid fan voted award. She owns the CMAs for those awards already for FEARLESS and if you’re a country artist, that’s what you want to get instead of a dumb ACM.

      • Doris

        I think Carrie Underwood is a very good seginr, but she is very boring live. She lacks stage presence and dept. I don;t beleive her career will have longevity, which I beleive Miranda’s will. Thanks Rob for taking sometime away from running the Carrie Underwood fan club to visit the site.Like or Dislike: 1  0

    Please,Country industry. Stop pushing miranda lambert. I know ‘Revolution’ is phenomenal but miranda is overrated/overhyped.
    and Last year, Carrie stole EOTY from Taylor Swift so

    • Natalie

      Oh please Carrie has NEVER even been nominated for EOTY at the all important CMAs. I doubt Taylor cares about the ACMs when you’ve already got the most imporant awards all in one year at the CMAs.

  • Natalie

    Randy Rogers Band should win group. I know Lady A and ZBB are more famous and very good, but RRB is excellent. If you don’t know these guys, you should really check them out! Steal You Away is one of the best songs!

  • ALM

    I’m not the biggest Rascal Flatts fan in the world, but who did they p**s off this year to not even be nominated??

  • Karrah

    What’s with the Miranda hate? I’ve been a huge fan of hers ever since her first album came out in 2005. To me it seems like she is finally getting the recognition that she has deserved all along.

    • Matt

      Exactly! People just can’t stand it when their favorite artist is past their prime and the attention all goes to the next big thing. Miranda deserves all the awards she’s received – an nominations as well.

      • so what

        I agree 100%. Plus every single time Miss Carrie doesn’t get nominated or wins her fans scream boycott and the show loses it’s credibility. Give me a break. She’s overrated, snotty and wooden. Taylor Swift & Miranda Lambert are real artists not some puppets that have good song writers. Carrie may have a good voice but other than that i can’t find anything else interesting about her.

  • Davidfur

    Female vocalist: Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Lee Ann Womack. Which one does not belong?? Oh well, at least four of them can sing live in tune!

    • Vivian

      Very funny. Also, the reason she won CMA Entertainer of the Year is because she sold better than all the rest of the 4 women put together and so did her concert receipts. She sings in tune alright. It’s her haters that are out of tune with everything.

  • Davidfur

    Entertainer of the Year: Jason Aldean instead of Kenny Chesney? Tired old Toby Keith instead of Lady Antebellum?? And screechy pitchy Taylor Swift instead of Carrie Underwood???

  • efrain

    Taylor Swift will win Entertainer of the year!
