    I just wish we had been able to see Tracy Lawrence accept his award, after soo many years in this business and not be able to accept your award on national TV – that just sucks…..but I am very happy that he did win because it just proves that he is still amazing after all of these years.

    You’re right, Lanibug. It would have been nice to see Tracy Lawrence accept his award. MattC mentioned that they interviewed him on the Nashville affiliate right after the show. I did a quick search on YouTube, but came up empty handed.

    I got 18/20 on the quiz. I took it earlier, so I don’t remember which ones threw me.

    14/20 for me.

    I’m convinced Tracy won the award because of Kenny Chesney. Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney, and Carrie Underwood were the only ones to walk away with multiple honors Wednesday night, and they are all on the same label. It’s no coincidence. I hate to take something so grand away from Tracy Lawrence, but the voters gave that award to Kenny, not Tracy. They might as well just call them the Joe Galante awards.

    Re: the Lyle Lovett article. Honestly, Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts and Kenny Chesney played the right card by giving a shout out to country radio…that’s seriously all they play around here. Well, at least anytime I can stomach turning on my local country station these days..

    Tracy Lawrence is probably the best male vocalist not over 45 years old operating on the planet today. He should have been nominated for single of the year with his superior solo version of the song. The vocal event award is kind of a bogus category anyway but I’m glad to see Tracy win something from the CMA

    Brad S. I usually agree with a lot of things that you say but I am going to have to disagree with you…Tracy did not win the award because of Kenny and Tim he won it with the HELP of his long time friends. If you read articles from Kenny and Tim they say that recording that song was something that they had wanted to do for a long time and it was something that they enyoed doing with their friend.

    I have to agree Tracy is one of my favorite male vocalists, I have been listening to him for so long and there is not a song in his catalog that I do not enjoy…

    I can barely stomach local country radio as well because they play the same songs over and over and usually the only time I listen is on my drive into work so I can listen to traffic and then the rest of time I am either listening to Sirius or XM, much better selection of music and I get to hear the new music – or I am playing my ipod….

    If you can not give Tracy Lawerence the hard earned credit due than just be plesant and not say anything. He has keeped “Country Music” true. As others,this generation of radio country is pain to my ears. There is a reason why music has a vast option of preference. Only country knows country. Mixing usually brings seperation . Country is “Family”. Congrads Tracey
