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:

  • Dierks Bentley
  • Kenny Chesney
  • Lady Antebellum
  • Miranda Lambert
  • Brad Paisley
  • Reba
  • Rascal Flatts
  • Blake Shelton
  • George Strait
  • Taylor Swift
  • Sugarland
  • Carrie Underwood
  • Keith Urban
  • Zac Brown Band with Alan Jackson

Kenny and Taylor before and after CMA's EOY.

So it seems that my man Kenny Chesney didn’t have a problem with Taylor winning EOY, so I’ll try (I said “try”) not too. Kenny is just showing his great nature and being the good guy. Maybe Taylor really did deserve it, or maybe it was just an extra pity vote or 2000, from the whole Kanye interruption. Still she is a talented song writer and apparently she has a HUGE following, I just think Kenny is on another level entirely and if you have ever been to 1 of his concerts, you know why.  -Greg

 Here is what Kenny and Taylor had to say before and after the award for Entertainer of the Year, from CMT:

Taylor Swift shared Kenny Chesney‘s congratulatory comments immediately after she was named entertainer of the year award at Wednesday’s (Nov. 11) CMA Awardsin Nashville. “He just said, ‘I’m so proud of you and I love you so much,'” she recalled. “We were texting earlier, and we were saying that same thing, like, ‘No matter what happens tonight, I love you so much.’ And it was just like I really, really love Kenny a lot. All the other people in the category with me have taken me out on tour as their opening act. Every one of them — Keith, Brad, George, Kenny — all of them. And so those are people that I’ve looked up to and just held up in my head as these heroes, and they’re always going to that for me.” Swift also said she was holding her breath during the announcement and that winning the night’s top award was “the most crazy, unexpected thing.”
