These Awards our bulcrap

Miranda Lambert for Best Female Vocalist GMFB this spot belongs to Trisha Yearwood

Big Rich with 4 nom's another big joke

Trisha Yearwood & Julie Roberts deserve some respect for this awesome work over the last year.

Glad to see the redneck wilson didn't get but 1 nod she needs to go back to the trailer park.

Awesome to see Rodney atkins with 2 nods talk about overdue respect.

Hopefully Ashley Monroe walks away a surprise winner in the vocal event catergory.

Very fine awards noms IMO.

I am actually surprised that Vince Gill didn't get more. His album was very good plus he is a favorite in these awards and CMA's in years past.

I am so glad that Rascal Flatts broke into Entertainer. They are so good.

Actually glad for Big & Rich. I have never been big fans of theirs but their last album and last few singles have been a lot better.

I love Brooks & Dunn but I am really hoping this is the year someone finally beats them. There are so many good duets right now that deserve some recognition.

I hope Kenny Chesney wins nothing. He's a boring singer, all his songs sound the same, and I see no appeal with him whatsoever.

No surprise the Chicks got dissed. They've been on country music's sh!t list ever since they knocked the Prez. When a genre is made up of tons of ultra-patriotic, for God and country singers and fans, those kinds of remarks aren't taken lightly. Maybe if the wounds of 9/11 weren't still so fresh at that time, it wouldn't have been such a big deal.

I'm not a big fan of country, but Give It Away by George Strait and When You Think of Me by Taylor Swift are two great songs.

The Dixie Chicks are better than those bible thumping tobacco chewing close minded hicks anyway.

It's their loss (the academy's)

The bible thumping tobacco chewing close minded hicks have become

everything they accuse the so called liberals of being. Hypocrites.

They proved it at the Grammys.

Oh, well now that's just uncalled for. Not all country fans are "tobacco-chewing, close-minded hicks." That's a stereotype, and I especially wouldn't have expected that you, Alky, would be so easily given to stereotypes and prejudiced statements.

Why cuz I'm a gay? Sorry that doesn't fly.

And I'm not naming stereotypes in describing them.

Country fans went OUT of their way to BURN the DC cd's, they told their children that its okay to hate people who dare speak their mind, they threatened the lives of singers who shared their opinion.

If thats not close minded, what the hell is?

I think we should note, however, that a minority or a handful of former fans gave the death threats, which we'll agree were out of line. Burning CDs, however, is nonviolent political speech. I won't cast stones at someone for that.

Well I (being one of those southerners Shawn was referring to) am glad the the Dixie Chicks spoke their mind and spoke out against our idiot President.

I know that the south is typically referred to as the Bible Belt and Republican country....but this Southern Baptist, Democrat from Kentucky is glad they did it. :)

    • I dont see them killing Nikolas. He may get rested if Adam Huss is not here long term until they find the new Nik
    • Lots of Stuff coming for Laura with Nik, Spencer & Victor
    • I remember those days of the annual “Chloe Returns” announcements.  Maree and John Martin (Bill) should have been put on recurring when Alice passed away in 2010, heck they should have been the main guest at the HORTON town square opening in 2011.
