What a great night!  I pre-picked the winners, see how I did.  I didn’t see Entertainer of the Year that’s for sure! 
07:18pm – Well, I wasn’t that impressed with the opening number.  I was expecting more I guess.  Kenny Chesney seemed to just end.
Hunter, Brad and Dierks are “Outstanding In Their Field” I think!  Love the song!  Love the way they play guitar!
David said George was beginning to show his age!  I said “Yeah, Sexy Sixty!”  Love that man!
Eric Church – I LOVE this song “Like Jesus Does” but please, please, shave off the beard, not so much! – goose bumps!
07:40 – We are 40 minutes into it and not one award yet?  Come on.
07:43 – Lady Antebellum – Are they going to win Vocal Group of the Year?  They are amazing in concert.  Have you ever seen them in concert?  One of my favorite concerts ever.
08:30 – I did NOT see that one!  Little Big Town for Vocal Group of the Year.  I thought Lady Antebellum or The Band Perry (while I secretly hoped for the Zac Brown Band). Never even considered Little Big Town.

Sunday night at 7pm I’m going to be in my comfy jammies with a glass of wine and my lap top as I watch the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards on ABC.  Following is a list of categories and which artists are nominated.  I have put a star next to the ones I’m predicting to win.  Let’s see how well I do.  I’ll keep updating this post as the night progresses.
