CMA awards night...my thoughts on the winners and loosers.

So I'm sitting here in the studio watching the show all by my lonesome...I feel the need therefore to share all my thoughts of the show...some you may or may not agree with :)

First shock of the night for me was Lady Antebellum winning New Artist of the Year over Rodney Atkins or Jason Aldean. Jason has been around a while and yet still somehow qualified for new artist so I wasn't expecting him to win. I had predicted Rodney Atkins would get it...I mean four number ones in a row?! He was robbed!

I've still got chills from the intro for Carrie Underwood by the soldier's wife! How she didn't cry through that whole song, I'm not sure because I was choking back the tears.

Brad Paisley and Keith Urban get to perform twice? Hmm...I love Brad and Keith but would've liked to have seen someone else given a chance to take the stage too.

Reba performing with Brooks and Dunn- didn't she do that on another awards show and forget the words? She remembered this time-that's an improvement!

James Otto-what a voice!

Is it blasphemy to say I don't like the Eagles? I'm not talking old Eagles...Desperado, Life in the Fast Lane...those are classics. But "Too Busy Being Fabulous" not fabulous in my opinion. Again, would've rather left that spot open to another artist.

Shania is back and she brought the girls with her! ...Kenny noticed too lol.

And the big one...Entertainer of the Year...I was hoping for Brad but I did pick Kenny in the pool so yeah, one more right for me!

So I got 5 out of 6 right...darn that Lady A win.

And I missed the tiebreaker too...musical event of the year. I have to say I love Alison Krauss but to win over Kenny and George, Reba and Kenny....some of country's biggest stars? And my pick of "Life in a Northern Town" cuz that song just took on a life of it's own and became a hit without them even meaning it too. There were like 6 people robbed with that one. Ok...off my soapbox. Love you Alison- you should win a Grammy in the bluegrass category every year but not a CMA. Sorry!

So who did you think was robbed tonight? Sounded best? Looked the best?

I thought that Jason Aldean got robbed. He is already on his 3rd album (She's country is the first single) and has had a ton of hits. Lady Antebellum, while I do like them, have only had one album and only a couple hits. Jason qualified because his first album was released during the "CMA year", which is different than the actual year. I would guess it starts around August, so that there is enough time for the songs released to gain publicity. Jason has had 7 hits, and is, of course, totally amazing :) LOL.
