Some of the choices I made aren't my favorite artists but rather who I think sang the song the best that they are nominated for. Or who has the best entire album. 

I will honestly say I'm not the biggest fan of Kacey Musgraves but the girl can sing and write songs like nobody has in a long time. 

I'm really hoping that T-Swift doesn't get a chance to walk up on stage. I want to like her but I just can't. When she was unknown and had just released the single "Tim McGraw", I couldn't get enough of her. Now all her songs are too pop sounding. 

I think Luke Bryan will win Entertainer of the Year because he is entertaining. I've never left a Luke Bryan concert disappointed. 

A saw Miranda Lambert back in October of last year and was falling asleep and never wanted to leave a show more. shocking (I know) ! I had seen her live right after she started making a name for herself and she was amazing! All four songs she sang. 

I do hope Kip Moore wins Best New Artist his songs always get me-right in the heart. I can really feel how passionate he is when he sings through his songs.

who do you think will win?

  1. You make me want to be a cun'try fan. I should really listen more.

  2. First off, I can't believe George Strait won for EOY. So crazy! I loved everything about BLUKE. I liked that Lee Brice won, although I think Wagon Wheel deserves SOMETHING. I am not a fan of Kacey either, so I was disappointed she won, but I haven't listened to her album, so who knows. I was also sad that Kip Moore didn't win. Yay for country music!


I love hearing from you. Thanks for taking the time to read about Dexter Morgan and his adventures.
