    Taylor Swift should win every award she is up for!

  3. Ashley says:

    I voted over and over again for Justin Moore to win the Nationwide Insurance award. I really hope he wins.

    This opening for the CMT awards is embarrassing. It’s a big mess! Oh my God…I’m cringing.

  4. Ashley says:

    Brad Paisley “Welcome to the Future” deserves the Video Of the Year award IMO. It’s such a beautiful video showing different cultures and the message of the song is powerful. I’m excited. haha
