This is Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan’s 5th year hosting the ACM Awards. The big event was held at AT&T stadium in Texas where the Dallas Cowboys play.
Whiskey and Randy’s thoughts on who might win:
Entertainer of the year: Luke Bryan, Garth Brooks, and Miranda Lambert
Female Vocalist of the year: Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood
Male Vocalist of the year: Dierks Bentley and Luke Bryan
New Artists: Sam Hunt and Kacey Musgraves
Randy explains the term “bro country” as well. He says that it is basically guys singing songs about trucks, beer, and women. Now, female artists like Maddie and Tae are taking a jab at bro country by singing songs such as “Girl in a Country Song” which is a song about wanting to be treated with more respect. Randy thinks that maybe a female like Miranda will win entertainer of the year this year because the people want to see a deserving woman in that top spot.
