  1. Can't believe Carrie Underwood and George Strait aren't nominated! Trust me I'm a HUGE fan of Lady A and Miranda Lambert but really ETOTY??? Lady A isn't even headling a tour (yet) and Miranda didn't put on a huge tour set like Carrie & George. All I can say is WOW.... These awards shows are becoming more and more of a joke for the industry. Sorry for venting....

  4. Zac Brown Band is still considered a New Artist???? And they are nominated for Entertainer of Year? Makes no sense... I can't believe Toby Keith isn't nominated for anything? He should be up there in the Entertainer category as should Carrie.

  7. REALLLLLLY.... the entertainer of the year category is an absolute joke! WHERE IS RASCAL FLATTS in this?! Obviously whoever votes for this dumb award show has never been to a flatts show! And does Lady A or Zac Brown band even headline their own tour?! Complete CRAP.
