    I can’t wait to see the power couple win male and female vocalist yet again. I’m calling Musgraves for the female vocalist steal hopefully. I wonder if Taylor will lose the EotY again?

    Taylor can leave with 2/5 but i don’t have so much excitement for this, after seeing last year’s suspicious EOTY lost. Don’t call these fan voted if you intervene to the results. And Taylor also seems not so much excited for this, too. I wouldn’t be surprised if she didn’t attend the show.

    Oh please, Taylor is going to attend the show. Just because she didn’t get nominated for her own solo work means nothing. She still has 5 nominations, 3 of which will be presented on the main telecast. Maybe if she had an actual succesful country song eligible, she would have been nominated for more awards.

    And I don’t believe the BS that they intervened in the voting for EOTY last year. Fans of country music just didn’t vote for her. Luke Bryan is more popular now than ever before, so it’s easy to see why country music fans would vote for him over Taylor Swift.

    I suppose you think the American Country Awards also intervened in their results too? That entire show is fan-voted, and Taylor was nominated for Artist of the Year, Female Artist of the Year, Female Single of the Year, Vocal Collaboration Single of the Year, Touring Artist of the Year, Music Video of the Year, Female Video of the Year, and Group/Collaboration Video of the Year (a total of 8 awards), and she only won 2 awards, and that was for her collaboration with Tim McGraw. I guess they intervened in the voting too, right?

    Maybe or maybe not, i’m not sure about that one, but i rreally have high doubts about this one , ACMs. Taylor fans didn’t care so much about ACAs, so they probably didn’t vote so much for that. However, last year’s ACMS  was the main voting event for Taylor fans at that time, it seems almost impossible to me to lost that award,i mean, Luke Bryan is not One Direction or Justin Bieber, he can’t get that much of vote. (If you’re suspicious about Taylor’s fanbase and how strong they are in the voting, just check out the AMA or PCA results)

    You need to understand that this was Country Music fans voting. Taylor has released TWO country music singles off of Red, and FOUR Pop singles from Red. Because of that, she’s going to lose again this year as well.

    And I don’t buy this crap of “her fans don’t care about the ACA’s as much as the ACM’s”. That’s complete garbage to me. Bottom line is, Taylor is losing her country music fan base. She continues to win the AMA’s and PCA’s because it’s not just country music fans voting for those awards. At country music based awards, like the ACA’s, CMT Music Awards, and the ACM Entertainer of the Year, she has lost significant support. This year, she was nominated for 8 ACA awards. She won 2, which were for her collaboration with Tim McGraw. She was also nominated for 2 awards: Video of the Year and Female Video of the Year. She lost both awards. She was, of course, also nominated for ACM Entertainer of the Year, and she lost that too.

    So it’s not just “well she lost the ACA Awards because her fans don’t care about those awards.” That’s complete BS. She lost the awards because she’s losing her country music fanbase.

    Oh that’s completely false. To say that Taylor fans don’t vote because it’s a Country music award. She won the over artist like Rihanna and Justin Timberlake who sell more than Luke by hundreds of thousands of votes proven through twitter. The fact that Taylor won 0 ACA and sells more albums than anyone else nominated combined is proof that it’s not fan voted and she’s never attended the ACAs or promoted the show. Taylor has more fans than anyone else in country. It’s just a fact more sales, hits and twitter followers. If Luke Bryan actually got more votes from the public (it’s just not country music followers that vote) should be selling more album. She’s just has more fans plain and simple. It’s not opinion that matters here. It Taylor campaigns for votes she’s gonna win. If she wasn’t country she wouldn’t be nominated. Again.

    Again if anyone honestly believes only hard core country fans vote for these shows needs their head examined. It’s just as easy as voting for American Idol or the X Factor anyone can do it.
