CMA Nomination Predictions


Before just about any awards show, my parents and I like to make our predictions about who will win. And especially before a country awards show.

With the CMA Awards on tomorrow night, we had to sit down and decide who the award was going to go to. While I wish more than anything that I was in Nashville, covering the red carpet, I am still in California; dreaming of the day that I will be back there reporting live from the award show or talking to country music’s biggest artists.

But, I digress.

Here are our picks…Keep in mind, we’re predicting who we THINK will win, not necessarily who we want, though some matched up that way.

The CMA’s are my absolute favorites, simply for the fact that Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will be hosting. You know that even if your favorites don’t win, Brad and Carrie will still knock it out of the ballpark with their opening monologue and banter throughout the night.

Tune in tomorrow at 8/7 c on ABC.

That’s all for now,

Shelby 🙂
