Carrie Underwood and Zac Brown Band Honor Veterans at Concert for Valor

Carrie Underwood
The National Mall was jammed with hundreds of thousands of people last night — as entertainers honored the nation’s veterans.  Carrie Underwood, Zac Brown Band, Metallica, Rihanna, the Black Keys and Jessie J were among the performers.  Bruce Springsteen joined Dave Grohl and the Zac Brown Band to cover “Fortunate Son.” Eminem closed the show, dropping a few f-bombs in the process.

The free Concert for Valor in Washington was carried live by HBO. There’s no official crowd estimate. But organizers said fans and vets would number well into the six figures. Jennifer Hudson kicked off the event with a powerful version of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

‘The 48th Annual CMA Awards’ – CMTT Predicts Who Will & Should Take Home the Trophy

2014 cma awards

Tonight ‘The 48th Annual CMA Awards’ will rock Nashville and ABC to crown 2014’s biggest and brightest country music stars and their accomplishments from the past year. Each year, we predict who will take home the coveted trophy…However, that doesn’t mean that that’s who should take it home. Numbers always account for who is nominated, but we all know that award shows have behind-the-scenes politics rockin’ the boat. 2014 was a year overwhelmed by newly-named ‘bro-country,’ and frankly… CMTT isn’t a fan. I think it’s time to send a message to country music and country radio that we believe in staying true to yourself, and that success comes to those who follow their own path, and not imitate someone else. That being said, here’s what we think is gonna happen at tonight’s broadcast.

ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR: This Award is for the artist displaying the greatest competence in ALL aspects of entertainment including recorded performance, in-person performance, staging, public acceptance, attitude, leadership, and overall contribution to the Country Music image.

Luke Bryan
Miranda Lambert
Blake Shelton
George Strait
Keith Urban

Who Should Win: Honestly, this could go to any of these artists. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing each of them in concert in my lifetime. George just bid farewell to his touring career with massive sell-out stadiums. Luke has enjoyed the most successful tour of his life. Blake and Keith although not touring as much as the others due to TV obligations to capture audiences through those platforms giving them a unique outreach. Miranda puts on a show like no other female in country music, blending perfectly with one of the guys. I would love to see Keith Urban take this home. He’s been around for a long time and managed to stay relevant while also staying true to his sound. He has pushed musical boundaries without feeling the need to abandon who he is.

Who Will Win: I have a feeling Luke Bryan will take this home. Don’t get me wrong…I’m a long time fan. I’m just not overly thrilled with artists who choose to perform stadiums…mainly because it lessens that fan’s experience by forcing them to share with 50,000 other people. I also miss the Luke Bryan who entered the scene with “We Rode in Trucks” instead of always having girls dancin’ in them.

FEMALE VOCALIST OF THE YEAR: This Award is given to an artist based on individual musical performance on a solo album release.

Miranda Lambert
Martina McBride
Kacey Musgraves
Taylor Swift
Carrie Underwood

Who Should/Will Win: I’m giving both to Miranda Lambert. I know all those Carrie Underwood fans may throw me to the wolves, but I think Miranda will steel this one again. She puts out single after single, sings them beautifully and makes them all hits.

MALE VOCALIST OF THE YEAR: This Award is given to an artist based on individual musical performance on a solo album release.

Dierks Bentley
Luke Bryan
Eric Church
Blake Shelton
Keith Urban

Who Will/Should Win: I honestly think Blake will continue his streak.

VOCAL GROUP OF THE YEAR: This Award is based on the musical performance of the group composed of 3 or more people based on the musical performance of the group as a unit on an album.

Lady Antebellum
Little Big Town
The Band Perry
Zac Brown Band

Who Should/Will Win: I’m giving this to Little Big Town again. No group comes close to their vocal ability, and I think they are still earning awards for time served.

VOCAL DUO OF THE YEAR: This Award is given to an act composed of 2 people for the musical performance of the duo as a unit on an album.

Dan + Shay
Florida Georgia Line
Love and Theft
The Swon Brothers
Thompson Square

Who Should/Will Win: Florida Georgia Line will obviously take this. I may not enjoy their music, but the other nominees aren’t even in the same league as FGL.
