'The House That Built Me' Wins Song Of The Year CMA
Two Wins So Far For The Lambert Hit
Very excited Miranda won! She deserves it and should have more recognition. She's worked very hard to get where she is.
Just a thought here...1: They should just do these "Award" shows ever 2 years. #2: The same small group of people "win" each year. With true Country Music, there are SO MANY more performers that NEVER get a chance!!! I don't think it's really fair that teams of marketing/publicity experts work over-time to flood the airwaves with their clients forcing other "true-singers" who do not have the means to sell product!!! Why not let the awards go back like they were in the past...Base them on "ACTUAL" music-sales. NOT combine T-shirt, coffee cups...
concert ticket prices,ect I am ALL FOR marketing and that however, these are CALLED "AWARD SHOWS" The voting format should be the same for each person!!!
Honestly, the last few years of "Country Music" is really "Pop" There really is a large talent pool of both new and old entertainers who are true-blue to their country roots but never even get a chance to be heard anymore!!! You can almost set your clocks by the "singers" on country radio anymore...Same songs in the am...noon, evenings then nights! I guess and sadly so, true Country Music is going the fate of sports in this country...Nothing to do with sportsmanship or "thrill" of the game...just who's ever marketing team commands the highest $$$...
