New Female Vocalist: Kelsea Ballerini
Vocal Group of the Year: Little Big Town
Vocal Duo: Florida Georgia Line
Entertainer of the Year: Jason Aldean


I’m really happy for Miranda as she continues to dominate!  Was also glad to hear her give a shout out to the up and coming female artists in commending them for “The great songs they wrote themselves.”

Now I’d like to remind ya’ll that these awards are voted on by the music industry.  So the top six on this list indicate that there are some people who KNOW good music in the music industry.  Why can’t we get the fans out in the world to stop buying into the bro-country and other crappy sounds that seem to emanate out of Nashville on a national scale so more artists like Chris can also be “winning” in record sales and radio airplay?
