2016 ACM Awards Predictions

2016 Academy of Country Music Awards Nominees

maxresdefault

Here are who I think will win this year, this is not necessarily who I think should…

Entertainer of the Year

Jason Aldean
Garth Brooks
Luke Bryan
Miranda Lambert
Eric Church

Been wrong all year… but I’m sticking with Garth Brooks here! No one had a bigger year on tour…

Male Vocalist of the Year

Jason Aldean
Eric Church
Brett Eldredge
Chris Stapleton
Dierks Bentley

This is a hard one for me this go around. As much as I have been flying the Chris Stapleton flag all year, and would love to see him pick up another W, I think Brett Eldridge had a monster year on the charts and put out some great music.

Female Vocalist of the Year

Kelsea Ballerini
Jana Kramer
Miranda Lambert
Kacey Musgraves
Carrie Underwood

Love Kelsea and everything that she did this year to death but I think my wife-in-law Carrie Underwood grab another one here.

Vocal Duo of the Year

Brothers Osborne
Dan + Shay
Florida Georgia Line
Maddie + Tae
Joey + Rory

Joey + Rory would make a great story, The Bros had one of my favorite songs and albums of the year, but its too hard for me to vote against FGL to take this again.

Vocal Group of the Year

Eli Young Band
Little Big Town
Rascal Flatts
Old Dominion
Zac Brown Band

I think that LBT ride the Girl Crush success to grab this one.

Album of the Year

Eric Church, Mr. Misunderstood
Sam Hunt, Montevallo
Thomas Rhett, Tangled Up
Chris Young, I’m Comin’ Over
Chris Stapleton, Traveller

Said it when it came out last year, Traveller was the BEST album out PERIOD!

Single Record of the Year

“Burning House,” Cam
“Buy Me a Boat,” Chris Janson
“Die a Happy Man,” Thomas Rhett
“Girl Crush,” Little Big Town
“I’m Comin’ Over,” Chris Young
“Take Your Time,” Sam Hunt

I say it will come down to Girl Crush and Die a Happy Man.

Video of the Year

“Biscuits,” Kacey Musgraves
“Burning House,” Cam
“Girl Crush,” Little Big Town
“Mr. Misunderstood,” Eric Church
“Riser,” Dierks Bentley

None of these really stand out, but Cam actually caught on fire while filming Burning House so I’ll give it to her!

Song of the Year

“Burning House,” Cam
“Girl Crush,” Little Big Town
“Nobody to Blame,” Chris Stapleton
“Raise ‘Em Up,” Keith Urban feat. Eric Church
“She Don’t Love You,” Eric Paslay

Girl Crush, but glad Eric Paslay got a nomination here.

Vocal Event of the Year

“Hangover Tonight,” Gary Allan (Feat. Chris Stapleton)
“Home Alone Tonight,” Luke Bryan (Feat. Karen Fairchild)
“Raise ‘Em Up,” Keith Urban (Feat. Eric Church)
“Smokin’ and Drinkin’,” Miranda Lambert (Feat. Little Big Town)
“Wild Child,” Kenny Chesney (Feat. Grace Potter)

Home Alone Tonight was by far the most successful, so I’ll go with Luke and Karen.

FAT GUY CHRONICLES – The New Plan Finished!

So I’ve been swamped and haven’t been able to update my latest weight loss saga. So I have wrapped up my 24 day challenge with AdvoCare. I can’t say that I followed the system the way that they have it set up, but I was close-ish…

So how did I fair is the real question right? Well if you read when I started, I was at about 225 when I started and before my wedding I couldnt get below 220. When I stepped on the scale this morning… 209.8!!! I’ve got people at work telling me I look way thinner! So I would say that the 24 days have been a great success!! And by the way, I ran 1 time last month!

Gotta say a BIG thank you to my friend Desiree who turned me on to the system, you can find her link below, if your looking to drop some lbs check her out and see if its a good fit for you!

So what now? I really want/need to get going on a workout plan… gotta figure out how to fit it in with work and school… Hoping to get below 200 before Summer! I’ll keep you posted!

#22PushUps for 22 Days for Veteran Suicide Awareness

Every day 22 of our Veterans take their own lives. To bring awareness to this, a new challenge has emerged, the 22 Push ups for 22 days. 22kill.com is working twords 22 million push ups to bring awareness to this horriabe trend. Much like the ice bucket challenge a few years ago, you commit to do the 22 push ups for 22 days and call out someone to keep the awareness going. Brantley Gilbert’s friend and former Army sniper Justin Patterson, challenged Gilbert and he was more than happy to accept. Gilbert then called out BG Nation to do the same to get the word out. So, I have accepted the challenge and will knock out my 22 push ups everyday! For some fun I am calling out my LNR Country Party co-host Nick Steele! Mainly I just want to see Nick struggle for 22 days!!! Check out BG’s video and mine below!

#22PushUps For our Veterans

Brantley Gilbert called out #BGNation to take the 22 Pushup Challenge for 22Kill to bring awareness to the fact that 22 of our Veterans take their own lives everyday. I am taking the challenge and I am calling out Nick Steele from Nick & Kristen in the Morning to drop down and give #22PushUps with me! I'm also calling out all of the #LateNighters out there! Lets do this for our Vets!!

Fat Guy Chronicles Feb 2016 – A New Plan

So after dropping 20 pounds for the wedding, I found my weight starting to creep up again. I hit a plateau at 220 pounds for 3 months before the wedding and couldn’t seem to get below it for more than a day or two. After getting back up to 225 I reached out to my friend Desiree, who is a bodybuilder, for a new workout plan and diet advice. She had recently joined up with a company called AdvoCare to help jump start her diet for an upcoming competition. They have a 24 day challenge that she had success with so since I trust her advice I bought the program.

The program came with a bunch of supplements, protein shakes, vitamin energy drink things, and a suggested meal plan to follow. I started my challenge last Monday, the day after the Superbowl! So after a weekend of more than a few drinks and LOTS of food that tasted delicious, but probably wasn’t the best for me, I got on the scale at 229 Monday morning. Now, I don’t consider that my starting weight because of the crazy weekend, so for my weight loss purposes I will say my starting weight was actually 225, my average weight for the week before.

The first week is a cleanse type of deal. Now if you are thinking cleanse like some I’ve tried, where you are constantly looking for a bathroom it has been nothing like that! As far as hunger goes with the meal plan, I haven’t noticed anything. In fact, I have actually missed meals or snacks (not recommended by the plan) because I didn’t think about it. I will say that I am drinking around 125 ounces of water a day and I cut alcohol and diet soda almost (had a few on V-Day!) completely out too. Overall with some planning the meals have been easy to set up.

As far as exercise, I did NONE for the first 8 days. They definitely recommend that I do, but haven’t had the time. I did do a small run this morning and plan to continue running for the rest of the 16 days left on the program.

So how about the results… After 8 full days on the system I weighed in this morning at 217, but it almost wanted to drop to 216! The encouraging news, besides the 8 pounds dropped, is that I broke through the 220 barrier that I was stuck at last time. I believe that Desiree told me the average weight loss for the challenge is 15-20 pounds, so I’m around half way to that without any exercise!

I’ll keep you posted and post some pics next week!
