    Miranda – Miranda – Miranda – Absolutely fabulous COUNTRY singer! More awards for her please!

    Reba, Lorreta, Dolly, Tammy, Crystal, (I could keep going) never won Entertainer of the Year 2 years in a row but Carrie does? Something deeply wrong with that picture.

  2. Easy Rider says:

    Miranda Lambert has made a big splash in country music

  3. angie says:

    I swear every single live act sounded flat, tonight. Everybody.

    Anyway, a pretty good show for someone who doesn’t care for country at all, well, with few exceptions. At least I got to look at Matthew McConaughey and LL Cool J! lol

    @ DJSlim:
    Need you now is a great song, I saw them do it live at Kimmel about two months ago, they really are that good live

  5. Easy Rider says:

    Miranda Lambert is making a really big splash in Country music

  6. joeyinc says:

    Carrie just looks better every time you see her, I almost wish I was Canadian :blush:

  7. Easy Rider says:

    Brad P is always good, I’m glad he won.
    Carrie looked gorgeous singing Temporay home. Man that song put Carrie way over the top. Reba looks hotter then ever to me. Nicole kidman looked like death warmed over. Zak Brown are really good IMO.

  8. jalin says:

    Just watched the opening of the show clip. Carrie is so-o-o great. She manages to excel at any genre of music and I loved the “rocker chick” in her tonight. She definitely can do rock and roll and I thoroughly enjoyed her gravelly sound and rockin’ out vibe. I guess I JUST LOVE HER. :wub:

  9. angie says:

    Carrie looks like one of those Barbie birthday cakes with that big dress on.

  10. angie says:

    MUTE!!!!!!!! Rascal Flatts is on.

    And of course, my husband turns it way up!! He’s a funny guy. lol

  11. DJSlim says:

    Joey + Rory really need to come out with a new song. Cheater Cheater is getting old

  12. angie says:

    Taylor Swift looks very pretty and sounds pretty good, tonight.

    This is just a general statement, but WHY do all these singers think they have to hover above the crowd? Pink, Carrie, Taylor. Good grief, just perform on the stage, please!

    Uh oh…Taylor was flipping her hair around, she MUST be a slut.

  13. DJSlim says:

    and Taylor Swift still can’t sing

  14. angie says:

    Oh, Danny looks great in those pictures!

  15. DJSlim says:

    @ Dr. Electro:

    alan is a better singer than Taylor

  16. DJSlim says:

    Carrie loses song of the year to Lady Antebellum

  17. angie says:

    Faith looks pretty!

  18. Dr. Electro says:

    I’m not a country fan. I just want to know if Carrie wins. Taylor does NOT deserve to be entertainer of the year, she lacks the experience as far as I’m concerned. There are also a lot of people more talented than she.

  19. Joyce says:

    @ angie:
    “who” is correct because it’s the subject and not the object. Bye!

  20. Joyce says:

    Well, we still have a couple hours of daylight and it was 77 today, so I’m going back out in it. See ya!

  21. angie says:

    @ Joyce:

    I totally agree about Reba and those jokes. I do like her and have liked her hosting in the past, but whoever wrote those jokes for her and whoever OKd them made a bad choice. She got quite a few moans and groans rather than laughs.

    Also, that up there should be ‘whomever’ I think, but I don’t really care because I think whoever sounds correct enough. :)

  22. Joyce says:

    @ angie:

    I’d never know… the sound on the live feed is about 5 seconds behind the picture!

  23. angie says:

    Chesney is lip-syncing!!

  24. Joyce says:

    What’s this guy’s name? Blake Sheldon?? I don’t think he sounds good. Can you tell I’m not much of a Country fan?

  25. Joyce says:

    I’ve never been a Reba fan, so maybe that clouds my opinion, but I’m just not digging her make-fun-of-people opening monologue. Talking about fried food and saying it sounds like Thanksgiving at Kirstie Alley’s house — just doesn’t seem like it would be Reba’s style of humor. From maybe Larry the Cable Guy it would be funny, but not Reba.

  26. DJSlim says:

    didn’t anyone clue Cher in that spandex are out

  27. DJSlim says:

    Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley and John Fogerty rocked the opening of the Academy of Country Music Awards :)

  28. DJSlim says:

    @ Joyce:

    i think entertainer of the year will be Taylor or The Zac Brown Band

  29. Joyce says:

    “Orange carpet”… how silly. Don’t care for the big folded poofy nonsense on Carrie’s shoulder, but she sure is pretty. Hope she wins Entertainer of the Year, but the way Taylor Swift has been stealing awards from her, I won’t hold my breath.

  30. DJSlim says:

    Carrie signed someones guitar on the red carpet. wish it was mine

  31. DJSlim says:

    red carpet photos are starting to hit the net.
