    Hopefully they don't omit Carrie at the last minute like they did her EOTY nomination. But I will give credit for them at least nominating her the other two times we won it for her This will probably be the only part of the ACM award show I will be watching though.

    I thought it was ominous when they had already decided her to honor her for her two wins as EOTY prior to the announcements of the noms for this yr ACMs. I guess the writing was on the wall but it is a nice honor. I wonder what songs she will choose to do.

    I didn't think about that. That is a very good point...

    Is Carrie going to sing at this event? If so, then she is going to blow everyone away with her amazing voice and show who really is the best female vocalist and entertainer of the year.

    Awkward for whom? Carrie and Miranda are friends plus they both were screwed in a way by this whole thing (Carrie not getting the nom, and the politics behind Miranda getting the nom won't help her). I don't imagine they are angry with each other.
    I'm sure all of the women involved will put on a stellar, professional show. The only people that may make it awkward are the fans.
    I personally think we should see this special as a great thing, and not turn it into something negative in light of the recent happenings.
    We still get Carrie on our televisions ...that is never a bad thing!

    I agree with the bold part...I know I'll enjoy it.

    I hope they not only recognize Carrie for her 2x EOTY, but also for all of her ACM wins, including Triple Crown and 3x Top Female Vocalist. I noticed they included TFV in Martina's write up, but not in Carrie's. Odd.

    After carefully reading the accolades, I find some of them not that overwhelmingly impressive to the point of honoring. Solo writer of song of year... humm, while its an achievement, I think its a bit of a stretch to be honored for it. Two albums of the year is enough to honor? I wonder how many times a man has achieved these two feats. No putting down the achievements, but this elevation of females is kind of odd. One can take this the other way and say that females have not achieved for so many decades until now. Perhaps its just a reason to have an event. I would have preferred an event to honor Reba.

    Sorry if this post was politically incorrect or found to be offensive. I didn't mean to.

    It would have been a lot more enjoyable for Carrie I would imagine if this was on the end of getting a nomination of EOTY and even losing since this was her biggest tour this yr. Too bad she was not recognized by neither CMA/ACM for her great yr.

    I think this is probably the biggest reason. CBS is looking to capitalize on popularity of the country music genre. But anything it will air in May during sweeps!!!!
