Who is ready for the CMA Awards this Wednesday, November 10?
The Outspoken One’s third album Speak Now has been receiving great reviews by most of the critics out there and making a killing at sales numbers, but the bad news is that it’s not eligible for any nominations yet. Here at the Swift Agency, one blogger to blog it all and still catching up on his sleep, would like to issue a collective groan and move on.
Taylor Swift herself is eligible as having performed (and outperformed) during 2010. The Fearless Tour itself already has its own Billboard Touring Award. This week starts on Tuesday with the BMI Awards which are invitation-only. Yes, Taylor is invited. We’ll hide in the curtains.
A much larger gala and one we will be invited via live TV broadcast is the 2010 CMA Awards. The gala takes place at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Wednesday, November 10 at 8/7c and it will be broadcast by ABC. Hosting duties again befall to Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood. Lady Antebellum is nominated for Entertainer of the Year as well as Album of the Year, Vocal Group of the Year, Single of the Year and Music Video of the Year. Taylor Swift is only nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year. Wait until next year. Because these things will change.
The awards are determined by voting from professional members of the Country Music Association. You can if you want participate in CMT.com’s poll of the CMA Awards nominee list. Just remember it has nothing to with the actual decision.
The Outspoken One is scheduled to perform. Lady Gaga canceled due to undisclosed motives. It’s. A. Joke.
The 2010 American Music Awards will also be broadcast live on ABC on Sunday, November 21 at 8/7c. Vote for Taylor Swift for Favorite Country Music Female Artist. Vote here. The Outspoken One is scheduled to perform Back To December.
The first ever American Country Awards will be held at the MGM Grnad Garden Arena in Las Vegas on December 6. Vote for Taylor Swift for Artist of the Year, Female Artist of the Year and Touring Artist of the Year. You can vote every day, but you have to register. The show is broadcast live on Fox at 8pm Eastern and tape delayed at 8pm Pacific.
Coming up! Well, actually coming up we can’t get past Wednesday, November 10 yet. Here’s another promo from Brad and Carrie.
