Poor Carrie. She will attend, look hot, out perform everyone, get snubbed, go home, and do it all over again at the CMAS. (sigh)
Getting dang old.
Thank God the Grammys still have a clue.
I read the press release for these 'special' awards the other day and I seriously could not believe what I was reading. Every single one of them seemed so fake and made up I really thought that they were made up awards. I think Jason Aldean was given the milestone award and for what because he's touring and he sold out some stadiums??? I thought that was part of the ETOTY award?
After reading about these 'made up' awards -- I know they're not really made up but they sure seem that way to me -- I found myself thinking of all the reasons Carrie could and should be given the milestone award but alas it seems she won't ever get anything like that. Like has there been any other artist, male or female, to start their career out with how many #1s in a row???? Or what about the recognition and fans she's brought to country music??? And then in a related note, I heard on GAC top 20 that Kasey Musgrave (or whatever her name is) received 4 nominations this year??? What's that about? How in the world could she or did she receive more nominations than Carrie?
So I've really come to the conclusion that this award show business is for the birds. They can hand out all the made up awards that they want and the politics can over elevate a newcomer. But I really believe that its going to be a very long time before the genre sees another female have touring numbers and radio success and cd sales and the celebrity status thus bringing focus on the country music genre as Carrie Underwood (and no SWSRN doesn't count cuz she's POP).
Kacey MusFLOP is overrated. Sorry.
Oh one more thought, it almost seemed like to me that the awards that were already announced were giving to artists because they were afraid these artists weren't going to win any of the awards they were nominated for, so its almost like they are being felt sorry for or something. It all just strikes me as very weird and strange. And yes I know and believe that the voting results are sealed and they don't know ahead of time who's won and stuff.
And loudmouth BS is being WAAAAAAAYYY over rewarded and praised for what he's doing on the Voice. It's a stupid tv show!
F*** the ACMs I am not watching that crap.Those voters make me so angry.
They are beginning to treat Kacey like they did Taylor in the beginning. She probably is a very good lyricist...but her voice isn't very strong. Wonder how she's doing in the arena shows with Kenny. She seems more like a small venue, intimate type to me. ...but what do I know.
Sick to death of Miranda winning FVOTY but I'm gonna vomit if Taylor wins.
I bet the ACMS threw JAson Aldean a bone with the Touring Award because they know Taylor won EOTY.No one can beat her rabid fan base in the voting.
yes-- kasey may be talented, but she did not deserve 4 nominations while Carrie got 2. Ludicrous. Her album just came out this week!
We all know how this is going to go down. So boring and predictable.
Do the ACMs really think we are stupid enough to expect a different result then Miranda winning Female and Taylor winning EOTY? Seriously?
If Taylor's pop album wins best country album--- that is the end of country music credibility at award shows.
Wait what? Kacey got a FVOTY nomination WITHOUT having an album out? :O
But Blake and Miranda are winning Female and Male vocalist yet again--- Power Couple Vomit Inducing Crap- so haven't then won enough?!!!?? Must they get new fake awards too?
If Carrie was given one tonight im 99% sure no one would say peep. In fact, I'm pretty sure it'd be opposite; the ACMs would be PRAISED for their wonderful and intelligent idea
^ Piticco-- I am actually ok with Jason Aldean winning the touring award, since he is snubbed at every award show for EOTY despite having better touring numbers then Blake, and actual country tours unlike Taylor.
But the Blake thing really annoyed me. I like Blake-- but winning an award for being on the Voice is just lame.
I'm going to stop reading these Award threads, so depressing & madding it's not good for me.
