  1. I liked seeing people in attendance. After all, if you can go to a football game, a Trump rally, or a spontaneous Biden president-elect celebration, you should be able to sit through a CMA Awards ceremony.

    But why would you want to?

    What a joyless, entertainment-free ceremony that was. The Charlie Daniels segment at the beginning was great. Full songs, even, and well sung and played! And Charlie Pride was sweet and grandfatherly in the most endearing way.

    Otherwise, I did not realize how sedate and boring recent country music sounds when crammed together in a 3 hour ceremony.

    Even poor, dead Joe Diffie – whose underappreciated run in country music was reduced to a Chevy ad – fared better than the sounds of most new crap.

    Where is the fun?

  2. Loved the show, but I was disappointed that the Kenny Rogers tribute was only one song. I also didn’t like Maren Morris with her outfits. Loved seeing Charley Pride get the recognition & the look on Eric Church’s face was great. Reba and Darius did a great job hosting.
