So the CMA’a are still almost 2 months away, but the nominations are out! So I decided to make a little game of it, yeah I just want to beat Mike Allen again! so here are all of the nominations and Mike, Our Big Boss Man, and my picks! Who do you think will have the most right picks? What picks do you think I got wrong??

2014 CMA Awards Nominees:

Entertainer of the Year
Luke Bryan
Miranda Lambert
Blake Shelton
George Strait
Keith Urban

Our Picks: Me- George Strait ~ Mike Allen – Luke Bryan ~ Boss Man – Keith Urban

Now I’m mainly picking the King because he keeps winning on all of the other shows and as far as we know this will be his last year! So I think there going to send him out on top!

Female Vocalist of the Year
Miranda Lambert
Martina McBride
Kacey Musgraves
Taylor Swift
Carrie Underwood

Our Picks: Me – Miranda Lambert ~ Mike Allen – Miranda ~ Boss Man – Miranda

Well no argument there… I’d love to see Kacey win though…

Male Vocalist of the Year
Dierks Bentley
Luke Bryan
Eric Church
Blake Shelton
Keith Urban

Our Picks: Me – Luke Bryan ~ Mike Allen – Luke Bryan~ Boss Man – Dierks Bentley

Would be great for Dierks, but I just dont think he has quite enough to get over the hump yet

Vocal Group of the Year
Eli Young Band
Lady Antebellum
Little Big Town
The Band Perry
Zac Brown Band

Our Picks: Me – The Band Perry ~ Mike Allen – Lady A~ Boss Man – Lady A

This was one of the hardest to pick for me, kinda felt that none of them had a smash year, but I was most impressed with my favorite girl band TBP! LOL!

Album of the Year
‘Crash My Party,’ Luke Bryan
‘Fuse,’ Keith Urban
‘Platinum,’ Miranda Lambert
‘Riser,’ Dierks Bentley
‘The Outsiders,’ Eric Church

Our Picks: Me – Luke Bryan ~ Mike Allen – Luke ~ Boss Man – Dierks Bently

Personally my 2 favorite albums this year were Eric Church and Brantley Gilbert but I dont think Eric has the love he did on Chief with this album…

Song of the Year (Awarded to Songwriters)
‘Automatic,’ Miranda Lambert (Written by Nicole Galyon, Natalie Hemby and Miranda Lambert)
‘Follow Your Arrow,’ Kacey Musgraves (Written by Kacey Musgraves, Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally)
‘Give Me Back My Hometown,’ Eric Church (Written by Eric Church and Luke Laird)
‘I Don’t Dance,’ Lee Brice (Written by Lee Brice, Rob Hatch and Dallas Davidson)
‘I Hold On,’ Dierks Bentley (Written by Brett James and Dierks Bentley)

Our Picks: Me – Automatic ~ Mike Allen – I Hold On~ Boss Man – I Don’t Dance

So this award is for who wrote the song, not for the artist. Always wondered what the difference was between song and single of the year! Automatic wasnt my favorite song, but I think that the lyrics are very strong

Vocal Duo of the Year
Dan + Shay
Florida Georgia Line
Love and Theft
The Swon Brothers
Thompson Square

Our Picks: Florida Georgia Line

Yeah I think FGL pretty much will have this locked up for a few years….

New Artist of the Year
Brandy Clark
Brett Eldredge
Kip Moore
Thomas Rhett
Cole Swindell

Our Picks: Me – Brett Eldredge ~ Mike Allen – Thomas Rhett~ Boss Man – Brett Eldridge

Love Kip but really? How does he keep getting nominated for new artist?? I think Brett has this one hands down, and thats not taking anything away from anyone nominated, this is a great batch of artists!

Single of the Year
‘Automatic,’ Miranda Lambert
‘Drunk on a Plane,’ Dierks Bentley
‘Give Me Back My Hometown,’ Eric Church
‘Meanwhile Back at Mama’s,’ Tim McGraw and Faith Hill
‘Mine Would Be You,’ Blake Shelton

Our Picks: Me – Drunk on a Plane ~ Mike Allen – Mine Would be You ~ Boss Man – Drunk on a Plane

This is where I think the biggest snub happpened, I can’t see any reason that Beat of the Music didnt even get a nod! It’s the most played song on Country Radio this year! I really wont be surprised if any of these win they are all great songs.

Musical Event of the Year
‘Bakersfield,’ Vince Gill and Paul Franklin
‘Meanwhile Back at Mama’s,’ Tim McGraw and Faith Hill
‘Somethin’ Bad,’ Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood
‘We Were Us,’ Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert
‘You Can’t Make Old Friends,’ Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton

Our Picks: Me – Keith & Miranda ~ Mike Allen – Miranda and Carrie ~ Boss Man – Miranda and Carrie

Somthing Bad is definitly the flashy pick for this, and it was epic, but I think We Were Us will find a way….

Music Video of the Year
‘Automatic,’ Miranda Lambert
‘Bartender,’ Lady Antebellum
‘Drunk on a Plane,’ Dierks Bentley
‘Follow Your Arrow,’ Kacey Musgraves
‘Somethin’ Bad,’ Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood

Our Picks: Drunk on a Plane across the board!

Really, have you scene the video? I still laugh! Now I’d love Something Bad to win just so we can watch the video again…. 😉
