I never understand why Josh Turner does'nt get more recognition. He is a wonderful artist ( he has such a great range)

If Taylor showed up, I can guarantee she would be given every award. But because she didn't bother showing up, they "snubbed" her. This is the same girl who won Artist of the Year at the all-genre American Music Awards last month. You are telling me she's not the best country artist? Puh-leeze. Anyway, Taylor just got Billboard's Woman of the Year award, I think she is just fine.

How is Mama's song even nominated to win best video? *** It is 15 months old **** You people do understand that ** OMG ** LOL ** If it was going to win it should have won last year ** These awards are so FAKE ** OMG **.

Well half the people who won I never heard of and the other two thirds can't sing. As for Taylor I am not a great big falling down fan but if you check her concerts every single one is packed to the max, with fans. Can you say that about these other actors that won. I think Taylor has made these other singers look bad and the ACA adjusted the books deleteing Taylor all together.

Award shows are about money, not fairness. Who determined voting and what happened to the two guys from an accounting firm that used to verify voting. This show was terrible, regardless of who won. No respect for country music, just the money of getting artists for free and awarding for attendance.

With Taylor Swift not winning any award, this is the worst award show ever. I am so glad I did not watch.

It's so sad that Taylor Swift didn't win ANY awards. She is the main reason why I watched it.
