CMA Awards 2009

I was in my own personal heaven on Wednesday watch the 2009 CMA Awards! First I will start with the performances: The performances this year on the CMAs were amazing and are the reason why this is hands down the best award show on tv. The show was only 3 hours long but they were able to fit in performances by Taylor Swift, Zac Brown Band, Tim McGraw, George Strait, Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, Keith Urban, Sugarland, Darius Rucker, Vince Gill & Daughtry, Brad Paisley, Brooks and Dunn, Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire, Martina Mcbride, Dave Matthews & Kenny Chesney, Jamey Johnson & Kid Rock and Jason Aldean. I can't even pick out my favorite performances because they were all so great. I did fall in love with Sugarland's new single "Keep You" and Keith Urbans "'Til Summber Comes Around." I was also very excited to see my two newer favorite country songs performed which were Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" and Jason Aldean's "Big Green Tractor." It was also great to see Brooks and Dunn play together for the last time because they have influence the country world so much through out the years and they will be greatly missed. And now for the winners...
Single of the Year- "I Run To You" Lady Antebellum
Song of the Year- "In Color" Jamey Johnson
Vocal Group of the Year- Lady Antebellum
New Artist of the Year- Darius Rucker
Album of the Year- Fearless by Taylor Swift
Vocal Duo of the Year- Sugarland
Male Vocalist of the Year- Brad Paisley
Female Vocalist of the Year- Taylor Swift
Entertainer of the Year- Taylor Swift

One of the things I really love about the CMAs is that you can see that all the country artists are friends and all excited for each other no matter who wins. It is so nice to see positivity like that at a music award show because it isn't always like that with other award shows. I can't wait for 2010 CMAs

One of my favorite parts was when Little Jimmy Dickens came on stage and did a re-enactment of the Kanye incident. As much as I'm done with hearing about that whole thing, that was pretty funny!

Taylor did so great that night! She was so deserving, especially considering the VMA incident

I LOVED THE CMA's! I think it was the first year I actually sat down and watched the entire program and it was well worth my time. Taylor Swift was obviously the star - I wish I could see her when she comes to the Xcel Energy Center!
