Country Music Matters’ 2014 CMA Award Predictions

Tomorrow is the 48th Annual CMA Awards hosted for the 7th year by Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley. Country fans look forward to this night for months and months. The excitement builds up and if you are like me, you can’t believe it is already that time of year! Just for fun we like to try to predict the winners…if past award shows are any indication, I am glad I don’t put any money down on this in Vegas because I usually don’t get too many right! However, once again I have made my prediction list. My picks aren’t necessarily who I WANT to win, but just who I THINK will win based on the the year the song, artist, etc has had. Take a look below at my predictions and see if you agree. Then watch the CMA Awards tomorrow NOVEMBER 5th, and see how CMM stacked up. Enjoy the show and CMM wishes all the nominees tons of luck and a great, fun night! ... read more!
