  1. You were too busy commenting on your new comment box when you should have been commenting about the show. Now where are the Carrie comments?

  2. Apologies, rez. Though in fairness, I don’t think most of us had a lot of thoughts about the Carrie performance. She looked hot and seemed to sing well, but was one of the many victims of the poor ACM sound. Her mic wasn’t loud enough.

  3. Pretty uninspiring list of award winners. Swift’s win is the only one I wouldn’t disagree with…oh and the “Top New Artist” award, but that’s more because none of them are at all exciting.

  4. i started listening to dierks bentley in 2010 and love his voice. didn’t have any idea who he was or what he looked like for a while. don’t love every single song, but there is lots of strong work there. more strong work than weak for sure.

  5. Leeann thats awesome; that music to me represents a time and a quality of people that seems missing in modern society and the “country” world. My dad gave me and my brothers a “Pickin’ the Earl Scruggs way” (not the exact title, it’s been 27 yrs ago) manual when I was a kid, and tho sadly I never developed into a player I was always fascinated by how incredible he and other musicians like him sound. If only all these current artists and music labels on mainstream radio, and all those that listen to it could take a step back and reevaluate the sound they’re leaving behind. Lesser music is constantly diluted and watered down, but the greatest music is timeless, and right now I don’t think we have anyone in country or other genres making timeless music. Perhaps tho I’m just being foolishly nostalgic, and things havn’t really changed. Maybe every generation grows up and feels the same way about the world of their after 40’s life vs. the world of their youth. I don’t think at any time in history tho that we’ve had a culture raised on the premise of instant gratification like we have today.
