    Entertainment Weekly: CMA Nominations 2013- The Snubs & The Surprises

    SNUB: Carrie Underwood An acclaimed album, four number one singles, and a 110-date arena tour (not to mention her new Sunday Night Football duties) were not enough to finally earn the perennial CMA Awards host her first Entertainer of the Year nomination. Annoyingly, this snub has been going on for a while. Methinks there must be record label politics holding her back. How else do you explain Jason Aldean, whose recent singles have floundered, sneaking into the category ahead of her?

    Every single point of the article is right. Good to see someone being honest, especially with the last paragraph.

    Finally--someone has the guts to speak out. I wonder if his/her job is in jeopardy now?

    They also included the conspiracy theory that Hunter was shut out because he toured with Carrie. I wondered if a carriefans member was hired at EW. Ha ha.

    Doubt it. He and Windmills are always talking back and forth on Twitter. Seems pretty established.

    I just don't see Hunter being a snub.

    MVOTY IMO is by far the deepest category and he would have to get in line to be a snub in that category and Single is such a crapshoot that even with the success of "I Want Crazy" I don't see that being a snub either.

    Sugarland getting nominated is just another reason why Duo and Group needs to be combined.

    Love the WHOLE article. He's pretty much saying what everyone outside of CMA voters are thinking.

    Can he become a CMA member please?!

    And I like that he pointed out twice about his dissatisfaction that Blake's album got in instead of another better one.

    Haha maybe that is why poor Brad was snubbed too- for being friends with Carrie. Guess they will screw all her friends too. Lol kidding

    That article pretty much summed up most of my frustrations with the CMAs.

    Funny!!! We can slow them down a lot by not buying any of their music or going to their concerts. I am not buying any--and none of Kelly C's again. Kellie P. should have gotten the female spot instead of Kelly C. Can you imaging how Kellie P's fan base must feel?

    So depressing reading these articles about the CMA nominations. It's really sad that Carrie didn't get nominated for Entertainer of the Year with all of the achievements she received this year. Now, every time Carrie gives an acceptance speech and thanking "country music" I'll be pissed because no one clearly backed her up even when she gave the industry recognition.

    I agree!!! However, remember Carrie retweet - "The Best Revenge is Massive Success" by Frank Sinatra, weeks ago? So, this will be a POWERFUL MECHANISM to create DISCOMFORT for her - to obliterate complacency - and thereby STIMULATE CHANGE and PROGRESS "BEFORE" the external world AROUND HER DEMANDS IT with a never-ending journey of - HUGE QUANTITIES of good old-fashioned DISCIPLINE and BEST and HARDEST WORK and the PURSUIT of an "EVER-HIGHER STANDARD OF EXCELLENCE".

    Like great INVENTORS, Carrie will thrive on DISCONTENT. She understands that contentment LEADS TO COMPLACENCY, which inevitably LEADS TO DECLINE. This will help her avoid complacency - how to remain SELF-DISCIPLINED because of her SUCCESS. It will keep alive that "FIRE that burns from within herself" that will impel her "to keep pushing", "to never be satisfied", and "to always search for improvement"!!!!!!!!!!!
