CMA Thoughts

CMA Awards right now- thought I'd share my ramblings as the show goes on...

Opening monologue with Carrie and Brad- hilarious!

Yeah! Lady A won Single of the Year for I Run To You- Love that song! Had to make it a last minute addition to our wedding CD I loved it so much.

Zac Brown Band singing The Devil Went Down to GA. I wasn’t looking up at the TV and heard them start and for a sec I thought it really was Charlie Daniels singing!

So excited for Lady A getting Vocal Group of the Year. Love that this category is actually competitive now and it isn't assumed that Flatts will win every year. Makes it more fun :)

New Artist- such a hard category! So many great new artist came out this year. Love that Darius got it- would've been happy with any of the other guys too though.

Love seeing Vince Gill back on the CMA's!!! And I'd watch Daughtry play anywhere

Brad Paisley is hosting, performing and tweeting! I'm following all the artists updates on twitter and after he performed he tweeted "how was that?" Good Brad, as always.

Gretchen Wilson just tweeted "I've heard 3 country songs so far and we're an hour and half in" Hmm...maybe she's just a little bitter since she's watching it from home? I think there have lots of great performances already tonight.

That kid from Randy Houser's video is too cute!

Ok I like Sugarland and was happy they won Duo- but was it classy of them to invite B&D up...or a little too much of a pity invite? They are Brooks and Dunn- one of the most successful acts in country music and have given countless acceptance speeches...they aren't Taylor Swift at the VMA's being denied her moment.

Nobody deserves a video award more than Taylor Swift. Her and Brad Paisley are putting out the best concept videos these days.

I'm a big Miranda Lambert fan but she needs to learn to fake a loosing happy face better. Show some teeth girl- you looked ticked not to win.

Is it just me or was the Kenny/Dave Matthews duet cut short?

Wow Taylor Swift Entertainer of the Year! It was the night of upsets- although she deserved it and I wasn't surprised to her take the reins from Kenny. I would've called it going to Taylor but every time I see Keith Urban I get distracted and want him to win :)
