    A big congrats to the artists. Very deserving. It will be very interesting to see if Miranda Lambert wins the female artist award as she has done so very little this year to even deserve a nomination (especially in the Entertainer of the year). She toured a little and had 2 songs that bombed and did not make the top 10 on the charts—Oh yes—she actually cheated and was divorced (maybe that is a good reason to win again this year). Carrie Underwood should by all means should win this award this year as she should have many times in the past years. It shows how voting is not done by the rules of the voting in awarding the artist most deserving. I read one article by an obvious Miranda fan that said she should get the award for Entertainer for just showing up, and keeping quiet about her personal life. Wow—what a statement. If Miranda wins this year again it will show how corrupt the voting system is and definitely needs changing. I honestly do not know how Miranda can look Carrie Underwood in the face knowing that Carrie (her so called friend) should have won many of the awards. Sickening and disgusting. Way to go WME…..
