44th Annual CMA’s in Nashville

Brad Paisley & Carrie UnderwoodIts official we’ll be heading to Nashville for the 44th Annual Country Music Awards. I have to say were pretty excited. Over the years we have been to many, many country concerts mostly in Saint Louis, MO. We’ve been to Kenny Chesney in Chicago and this past summer made it to the huge BamaJam Festival in Alabama. There is no doubt that this will be the biggest and greatest event yet for us. Come November 10th G Machine will be taking notes and pictures on country music’s biggest night of the year. Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood are back to host and a gang of the biggest stars are performing:

Dave Matthews and Kenny Chesney at CMA's

 Knowing I’m a big Kenny Chesney fan I’ve had quite a few people ask me, “What’s the name of the Kenny Chesney song with Dave Matthews?” I didn’t realize I guess how popular Dave Matthews is and he’s actually pretty good too. “I’m Alive” is a very good song and I think the both compliment each other very well for that song. I’ll be joining the rest in looking forward to the performance at the CMA’s. Who am I kidding, I was already looking forward to it! – Greg

Dave Matthews will perform with Kenny Chesney on the 43rd annual CMA Awards, event organizers announced Monday (Oct. 19). It marks Matthews’ first appearance on the show that will include several previously-announced performers, including Jason Aldean, Brooks & Dunn, Billy Currington, Vince Gill and Daughtry, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, George Strait, Sugarland, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and the Zac Brown Band. Chesney co-wrote “I’m Alive” with Dean Dillon and Mark Tamburino. The song was first recorded by Willie Nelson, but Chesney and Matthews recorded their version for Chesney’s Lucky Old Sun album. It also appears on Chesney’s Greatest Hits II and has already climbed to No. 8 on the Billboard country songs chart.

Kenny Chesney Scores Three CMA Nominations

When Kenny Chesney says “Obviously, I want to win Entertainer. But looking at all of this, thinking about everything we’ve been, everything we’ve seen and done, in some ways I’ve already won because look at the memories we made. To me, that’s the best thing we can do: give the fans music and memories worth remembering.” He’s got plenty of reason to say it!  His music, shows, and style is what captures me and the millions of other fans, this combined gives everyone great memories and I can’t wait to make more! -Greg

When the CMA nominations were announced yesterday, Kenny walked away with nods for Entertainer, Male Vocalist and Vocal Event with good friend Mac McAnally for their multiple week #1 “Down The Road.” “It’s funny,” admitted the man who’s also won the CMA Album of the Year for When the Sun Goes Down, “but the more you do this, the more those nominations mean. You realize what it takes to receive an honor like this – especially from your peers who make it happen and know the work and commitment it takes. You’ve got to be humbled knowing what you do is recognized. For me, the last 8 years has been about how do we make it mean more, give people all the things I wanted from the artists I loved growing up… so that when they look back, this music, these nights are something they’re gonna be proud to remember their youth by.” “Obviously, I want to win Entertainer. But looking at all of this, thinking about everything we’ve been, everything we’ve seen and done, in some ways I’ve already won because look at the memories we made. To me, that’s the best thing we can do: give the fans music and memories worth remembering.”
