    No nomination for Brad Paisley. Now, that’s a changing of the guard moment.

  2. Sunshine says:

    It’s sad to see no nom for Carrie Underwood. Also not happy to see that Red album nominated and some of the real country albums snubbed. That just doesn’t make any sense, regardless of how much money it made. It’s not a country album at all. Oh the unfairness that goes on now all because of money.
