  1. Adam Lambert and Leona Lewis are nominated for a country award? They’re not even country singers to begin with!

  2. I don’t follow the awards shows. i do recognize several of the names and wish them much luck. I am sure it is an exciting time for them.

  3. The first person I looked for was Luke Bryan. Geez, I love to hear him sing. There are others I love as well and I think should be nominated too.

  4. I don’t really watch award shows anymore. I definitely missed this one. I do appreciate country music though, they have one of the most laid back tunes, especially when you want some down time at home while listening to good music.

  5. wow, how cool is that. Could you imagine being nominated for something like this? Can’t wait to see who wins.

  6. YES, YES, YES!!! So glad to see these nominees. I LOVE Carrie Underwood and can’t wait to attend her concert in November. It’s on my bucket list to attend one of these award shows! Thanks for sharing.
