Country Music Awards

Tomorrow is the CMAs.  

These are not necessarily my predictions on who will win but who want to win.

I've italicized my second choice

I will pitch a fit if they win if they are crossed out.

  1. Yes to King George! I have a good feeling that Eric Church take the field this year, his album sales were the highest of the year. Good choices!

  2. I think your spot on with a lot of these!! Hope your picks win - I definitely watch and love to see what the ladies wear!

  3. It will be interesting to see who wins. I am setting my DVR in case I miss any of it. I would love to see Lee Brice win though.

  4. hope your picks win - i don't really follow or watch it. is it on normal TV or cable? I hope Taylor Swift wins something especially because she just moved to pop ;)

  5. Bahahaha... the crossed out ones are hilarious!!! I'm with you on T Swift. Her shit is catchy but she definitely doesn't deserve awards for it lately.

  6. I have to admit I dont listen to country music but I have to agree with your assessment on madame swifty. Her music is kinda catchy these days (i can shoot myself for saying that) but not award worthy.
