ACM's Tonight
« on: April 07, 2013, 07:51:13 PM »
I'm first and foremost a Country Music Fan....... looking forward to ACM's tonight.  John Fogerty is going to be one of the presenters - this year he turns 68 and his first single SuzyQ came out in 1968........ eek I feel old!  As I was and still am a HUGE CCR fan.

Sorry, but I'm glad to see Taylor Swift got shut out again. Her act is getting old and if it hadn't been for Billboard changing the chart rules to directly benefit her, she would be on her way out.

I was very glad to see she got shut out, I had a feeling she might.  She still has her rabid fans, but if you read their tweets most have got to be on the left.  Her music is not "country" but pop and she belongs more in the pop genre than country these days... plus when she lost to Miranda Lambert and then Blake Shelton at the CMT's last November she was shooting dagers that she actually lost and everyone saw it... she still thinks she is a princess, but in Country when you start acting out you fall like a rock - ask Faith Hill what happened when she had a hissy fit the night she lost to Underwood......  I don't think she has won an award since.  I was rooting for Blake Shelton to get the top award, but Luke Bryan was so overcome with emotion at his (unexpected) win and was so humble... plus he is very talented singer.....   I was glad to see Miranda and Blake win for Over You.... all in all a pretty good show with the exception of Jason Aldean getting best male vocalist... rumors have it he's been cheating on his wife and I don't like cheaters.
