    I wonder if the CMA folks will ring up the Grammy folks and tell them that by ignoring the Lifetime Recipient segment, they can squeeze in a Kellie Pickler song?

    If anyone deserves this award it is Brenda Lee. If I had been in charge she would have gotten it long ago plus lots of other top awards. This lady can out sing any artist in my opinion. Congratulations Brenda!

    I just hope they don’t get Taylor Swift to sing “I’m Sorry” again to honor Brenda! PLEASE DON’T!
