You throw your head back laughing like a little kid, Taylor Nation.

Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who’s always impartial and unbiased… ok sorry I couldn’t get through that one. As I’ve said a few too many times, I’m on the side of the Blonde With The Sparkly RED Guitar… that bakes cookies at night and calls it a party.

The 2013 CMT Music Awards have announced its nominations. The Princess in Red has two, Video of the Year for We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together and Female Video of the Year for Begin Again. You can read more on CMT. The 2013 CMT Music Awards air live from Nashville on June 5, 2013. You can enter the Free Flyaway Sweepstakes for a chance to win a trip to awards.

That’s as far as I would normally write about this, but for some reason I’m feeling a bit peeved today. I think the odds are stacked against her on this one. Viacom Media Networks will ask for your vote, but… they deserve the right to determine the winner. This is from last year’s voting rules:

The nominee, who receives the highest number of valid votes in each category, as determined by VMN (Viacom Media Networks) in its sole discretion, will be deemed the winner of the category. In the event of a dispute or tie or if for any other reason VMN deems it necessary or appropriate, VMN reserves the right to make the final determination as to which of the nominees will be declared the winner of the category.

Odds favor Carrie Underwood for this one. Not that Carrie or the other contestants doesn’t deserve to win. I’d just wish they take the voting out of it if they’re going to have final say in the end anyways. Unfortunately, the fact that WANEGBT is very pop-oriented and Begin Again’s Paris setting don’t really help here.

Although, there was that summer of 2011 where Mine took Video of the Year…

Frankly, I enjoy the CMT Awards to a point and have even had the chance to attend a couple of times, but I always see it as a chance to have other artists shine. You can form your own opinions. I’ll be pleasantly surprised if she gets something. Jason Aldean and Kristen Bell are hosting this year. I’m still going to put the link for you to vote.

You now can watch the playlists of the wildcard songs and the guest duets directly on the Videos page.
