    Why Toby Keith Boycotts The CMA's

    Found this very interesting. Toby threw in the towel a decade ago!
    Toby Keith‘s 35 MPH Town is out now and features 10 great tracks, but don’t expect to hear any of them at the 2015 CMA Awards. In a recent call to ToC Nights, the superstar explained to us why he hasn’t attended “Country Music’s Biggest Night” in a decade.
    “I just, years ago, decided that it wasn’t my bag,” he admits.
    Keith doesn’t get on board with the CMAs, which he calls “a political thing.”
    “I think in three years I had 24 nominations. I was 0 for 24 and I went, ‘I can’t beat the politics of this deal,’” the singer furthers. “I was a No.1 ticket seller, a No. 1 album seller and I spent 51 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard in a four year span and I went 0 for 24? I was like, ‘This isn’t worth my time.'”

    I actually have more respect for Toby Keith than I do for somebody like Kanye. Kanye complains about the awards but he still participates. To me artists need to accept them for what they are, marketing vehicles, and use them appropriately and just just bow out.

    He may not have needed them, but he wanted them and he certainly deserved them. 3 years at the top of his game and no acknowledgement. Sound familiar??

    ^^ he deserved those awards. I was saying he did not need them to be star because he did well in his career.

    Yep, he has done well in spite of all the CMA politics. Just a shame artists can't be awarded for their achievements.

    Me too. There are times though that I wish Carrie wasn't such a team player and would do the same thing as him.

    Good for Toby. I kinda wish Carrie had the guts to do the same. Toby was the first "adult" artist (as in not Disney) that I ever loved. I still enjoy his music when I actually get around to buying it. Bullets In The Gun is one of my all time favorite albums.

    Carrie has had 23 CMA noms (including this years) and has only won 5. I still find it hard to believe she hasn't won more especially after Blown Away came out! That was a massive time for her and still the CMA's couldn't give her the recognition she deserved!! Also I wish Keith Urban would win more awards!! He's such an amazing artist and cool person and he never seems to win anything : (

    He's going to have an exhibit in the Country Music Hall of Fame which is awesome!! I believe he's the first Australasian artist to do that!
