I wish there was a way to like comments on here. LOL That last one, I totally agree with. Brantley has already proven he's a successful songwriter, and I'm glad I get to see him in concert next month. One week is Miranda, the next is Brantley. Waiting rather impatiently to see if Eric is coming back to Council Bluffs.
I totally agree Cheif should have won album of the year. Just like I think Brantley is the one who truly deserved new artist of the year!
I have all of the albums you mentioned and CHIEF is by far the best. I feel that it deserved the ACM but it really seems they vote on who is the darling of the moment (and I like Miranda). Hopefully his turn will come to be honored as an artist. His performance was the best of the night too!
