Definitely watched the CMA's last night. Loved it. I am a definite country music fan, not ashamed. Between Carrie Underwood's sheer beauty, phenominal wardrobe and incredible voice and range, Brad Paisley's insane guitar pickin' and riffs and sexy Keith Urban lighting up the stage with his usual star quality performance, I would have to say that that I was very pleased.

Taylor Swift is kicking butt and taking names with all the awards she received this year. Not to mention, Entertainer of the Year. I love Taylor, I really do but I just think she is absolutely horrible live. Is anyone with me on this? Her voice is so pitchy and she goes flat all too often. I'm not discrediting her by any means as I have all due respect for her as a musician and a writer and I own all of her albums. She just isn't good live, plain and simple. She seems so sweet and I really do love all of her music (just as long as it's the cd).

Lady Antebellum is a new favorite for me. They kind of up and came out of nowhere but their music is fantastic, in my opinion! Loved seeing them perform.

All in all, I really enjoyed it this year. All of the jokes geared at Kanye West were pretty funny even as they have been worn out recently. I laughed (out loud, have you).

Happy Thursday everyone! :)
