But he doesn't give either an apology, or a convincing reason, for not mentioning her publicly (beyond the stock claim that he wasn't expecting it and hadn't worked out what to say) - but then he simply repeats the praise he gave to the other artists (which was one of the main things many found disappointing in his original speech).

    I mean gross. Then he just goes on to say another man is going to win EOTY EIGHT TIMES. WHAT?! When will any woman win if someone is going to win eight times?! I really can't stand Garth Brooks at all anymore. He's such an egotistical narcissist.

    Garthís in damage control mode but at the end of the day heís not the problem. The problem is systemic. Itís a system that sees nothing wrong with the format being 90% male. The same people who will admit to a gender based quota then claim Ďbest song winsí with a straight face are the voters for the awards.

    I agree with you 100%. My problem with Garth, along with the obvious, is having won the award 6x before he campaigned for votes knowing he didn't deserve to win just to boost his ego. He's not taking country forward in any way. When it comes to your legacy and how you want to be remembered, this is how he wants to be remembered? Because people are going to remember how arrogant he appeared when he won. It was so bad everyone went into damage control mode (radio, media outlets etc.) it was a bad look.

    So apparently Garth thought Carrie was going to win and that she deserved it.

    He is part of the problem though, if the rumors of him heavily campaigning for the award are true.

    If you watch the Extra interview video he says it in such a dbag way that it's like ya I thought she'd win cuz it was honoring women that night and that "she'll be ok". Like lol ok but you wouldn't be ok if you didnt win a 7th time?

    isn't it a subtle dig saying she'd win BECAUSE it was a "woman's night". Carrie deserved it not because it's some woman's night but because she earned it.

    I wondering if the voters are kicking themselves for not vote Carrie Underwood to win this year's highest honor?
    They have never kicked themselves before evidently, or they would have voted for her. She constantly steals the show with every performance she does at award shows.

    How come in 2016 and this year when Garth won EOTY he wasn't nominated for anything else like Male vocalist,album song etc...not saying you have to be nominated for other awards to be EOTY....but if hes made such an impact as the voters think why isnt he getting any other nominations?

    Agreed. The fact she said country is has such a comradely feel shows she way off base if sheís including women in that statement.

    Carrie will be played on country radio into her forties. That doesnít happen in pop. In that regard, she is correct. Also, based on her comments, itís not like she listens to country radio and would know whatís going on. Sheís is going off of the show honoring female legends and not forgetting them like pop does. Plus, from what Iíve heard from every person ever, Nashville, the country community, is more like a family than Hollywood.
