The Country Music Association Awards were last night and you completely forgot about them like I did (I know, I'm a bad country fan!), and just don't feel like googling them, I have all the winners right here for you.

New Artist of the Year: Jon Pardi


My opinion:

So many great artists this year, it must have been hard to choose the winners, but there were a few misses...

I think Eric Church should have gotten Entertainer of the Year because he puts on shows like no other! Up the three hours of his songs, incredible covers and he's been bringing us hits all year.

I think Flordia Georgia Line should have recieved Vocal Duo of the year, because I have heard them release way more singles and videos and go on way more tours and announce way more tours than Brothers Osbourne. To be completely honest, I kind of forgot about Brothers Osbourne after September... #sorrynotsorry.

It's weird that Jon Pardi was New Artist of the Year because he's been in the industry since 2015... but what do I know? I think he's great, just not new... that is a hard category.

I'm actually surprised Lindsay Ell, Carly Pearce or High Valley weren't nominated for anything. They have all been making huge names for themselves all year! There's always next year!

My mom PVR'd it for me, so I will watch it tonight. I do congratulate all of the winners!!!
