    Was her tour this year a co-headlining one?

How the CMA determines it's winners is a mystery but one thing seems very clear. The CMA is not targeting Carrie with malvolent intentions no more or less than it's targeting, Chesney, Urban, Brad, Jason, Flatts, and everyone else that came before this group. Carrie is not the only nominee whose overall success and performance skills exceed those of the winner. I've lost interest in knowing what the CMA selection process is, if there is one, and just take confort in knowing that what appears to be a well used practice is applied, perhaps in varying degrees to all it's multiple winners at one point or another.
    I've lost interest in the CMA selection process as well, but I wish I could take comfort like you. What irks me is that one can use a subset of the entire criteria to rationalize the winner of a category AND that it is NOT consistently applied year-to-year or category-to-category within a year. I have totally given up on predicting winners based on criteria and statistics. I have even given up on watching the CMAs as it only yields negativity for myself. I come here and read the posts for the results.

    One could use touring to justify Taylor but then it does not work to justify Blake or no nomination for Carrie. One could use sales but the winners across the board (generally) have not had the most sales. Someone on Pulse said its the person that best represents country to the public at large to justify Taylor and I vehemently disagree.

    Lol

    She was the sole headliner for her On Fire tour this year. Her front acts were Chris Young and Jerrod Nieman, with the Pistol Annies as special guests on some of the venues I think. I don't know how many cities the tour visited, but I read a BB article that she had a good overall attendance, around 95% or higher I think.

    When she was in Louisville they put her tickets on sale for $25 the week prior to her arriving.And they gave away a ton of tickets. So take that 95% with a grain of salt.

    If I remember it right I think the venue capacities of her tour were around the size of PO tour, or slightly smaller.

    He is taking care of his MOTHER, FULL TIME and had a FAMILY LEAVE FROM WORK. He told me that when his dad passed away more than a year ago (SAME SCENE AS Carrie's Temporary Home Video in the hospital bed, but, his scene was AT HOME , UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF THE HOSPICE - he promised to his dad that he will take care of his mom FULL TIME.

    $25 is the standard pricing of Miranda's lowest price level tickets.

    I'm surprised they gave away a ton of tickets because her attendance for that venue was 13,100. I wonder why they would they open so many seats if she wasn't selling? Usually they open only a certain amount and then release more if it sells really well.

    Take note that "lab" has proven GINSANA in TYPE 2 DIABETES only, NOT in Type 1 diabetes. His mother HAD TYPE 2 DIABETES with an "A1C = 350" in the blood test - she had an average of blood glucose count of 350 for the last three months, BEFORE IT WAS CORRECTED, and now has an AVERAGE OF 130. GINSANA will prevent you in using the INSULIN, but, TO GET THE "IDEAL" blood glucose count of an AVERAGE of 130 - you still have to take the MEDICATION, "METFORMIN", one after breakfast and one after dinner. Your blood glucose count will have an average of 170, TAKING GINSANA ONLY without METFORMIN - which is still acceptable. ALWAYS CHECK YOUR BLOOD GLUCOSE COUNT - before and after eating. You will get an IDEAL BLOOD PRESSURE of 120/80 - only if you also take the MEDICATION, "LISINOPRIL". But, to SOME PEOPLE, without "LISINOPRIL", they can still get the "IDEAL - 120/80" by just taking GINSANA.

    THE SCIENCE OF GINSENG (GINSANA) which you can read from the above site are - ALL TRUE AND CORRECT based on the MANY YEARS OF THE INTAKE OF THE "SOFTGELS" by other members of his family and friends.

    Maybe so, as I can only speak for Charlotte, NC, but here, she played in a smaller venue(Bojangles Colliseum) than Carrie has played in the past two tours. Her first run with CR might have been with the Bojangles (do not knw for sure, but I do kniw I could not go as it was sold out) but PO and BA were both at the larger Time Warner Cable Arena.

    Also, "lab" learned a lot from Carrie Underwood's HEALTHY EATING PLAN and HEALTHY LIFESTYLE WITH EXERCISE - posted in many threads here. The three BASIC COMPONENTS that "lab" has proven in the nursing home are:

    1. A healthy eating plan like Carrie. You do not , NECESSARILY, be a vegan, THOUGH. A small amount of LEAN MEAT is fine. GREEN SALAD, BLACK COFFEE without refined sugar, UNSALTED DRY ROASTED PEANUTS and fresh fruits like different kinds of berries and grapes and banana will be GREAT. AVOID REFINED SUGAR AND DESSERT AND "JUICE" WITH HIGH CONCENTRATION OF REFINED SUGAR.

    2. You need BASIC SUPPLEMENTS - NATURAL ANTIOXIDANTS, GINSANA (GINSENG ROOTS ) and ONE A DAY MULTIVITAMIN.

    3. A healthy LIFESTYLE with exercise of Carrie (EVEN JUST a small portion of Carrie's exercise).

    GINSANA (GINSENG ROOTS - HIGH QUALITY is the Korean Ginseng, GINSANA brand) - can alleviate TYPE 2 DIABETES AND WILL PREVENT OR CAN REMOVE THE NEED FOR EXTERNAL "INSULIN" ADMINISTRATION - it promotes a hypoglycemic effect by adjusting the blood sugar level. This is the effect of the insulin-like compounds that have been found in GINSANA.


    BLOOD PRESSURE IS LOWERED by relaxation of vascular smooth muscle.

    I just want to note that - "hypoglycemic effect" - you mean CONTROLLING "INSULIN" and BALANCING the "BLOOD SUGAR" EFFECT. The KEY - AVOID REFINED SUGAR and any FOOD WITH HIGH CONCENTRATION OF REFINED SUGAR and take two softgels of GINSANA after eating (two after BREAKFAST, two after LUNCH and two after DINNER) - and "EXERCISE"! Check your blood glucose count BEFORE and AFTER eating.
