    The CMA nominations are being announced Wednesday morning. Any predictions?

    I don’t have official categories broken down (sorry), but here are my general thoughts:

    – “Pain Killer” and Girl Crush will appear in Album, Single and Song, respectively
    – “Take Your Time” will appear in Single and Song
    – Beyond Miranda, Carrie and Kacey, the other two female vocalist nominations are up for grabs.  I’m guessing they’ll go to Kelsea Ballerini and Lee Ann Womack. Fingers crossed for Reba, though.
    – Like the ACMs, Garth gets into Entertainer of the Year

    Pretty standard predictions.  Like many others, I’m almost completely over today’s country music, but I have to check into these, nonetheless.  Anyone working on predictions?

    You were right on target on all your predictions!

    I gotta say I was pulling for Reba in FVotY, but I’m happy for Lee Ann as well!

    3 of their BNA nominees have reasons to win and grab the Grammys country slot.

    As much as I love Maddie & Tae, I think it’s between Sam and Chris… I think, as you said, both have good reasons to win.

    Sam is this year’s big success story but is also quite divisive, so I can actually see Chris pulling an upset, even though he gives me some major Jamey Johnson vibes (who was in a similar situation a couple of years ago).

    LBT only got five since they are not writers of the “Girl Crush” song and Kenny only got four for the same reason since he did not write “American Kids”.

    I’d love to see Dierks Bentley and Lee Ann Womack take home the male and female artist of the year awards. And may Thomas Rhett be named the Best New Artist and Kenny Chesney be named the Entertainer of the Year again and the Zac Brown Band score their first ever CMA Group of the Year award too! (smiles)

    God bless these wonderful singers always!!!
