    So . . .Because Kelly redid her "Mr. Know It All" to a country song and at one point or another sang a duet with Jason Aldean and Reba McEntire, she gets to be nominated for Female Vocalist Of The Year in Country Music?
    How? I mean I love Kelly but she is not a country music singer that has done great achivments in country music in order to get nominated for a big category such as that one!

    We used to have a really good country station here in LA, but about 5 years ago they switched to something called "dance music" - have not been able to find a good station since then, so listen to The Wave.

    Taylor does not deserve to be nominated for any country music award.
    Swift politely lures her on-looking pray by strumming a sparkly guitar and singing girly pop breakup songs. Nashville and CMA has lost their minds.

    Now that Kelly Clarkson has been nominated for a CMA, I will excitingly watch that show. She has the best vocals of any genre. I am also here for Miranda, Blake, and Jason Aldean.

    Nothing against Kelly, but she has ONE country single and she gets nominated? What is CMA playing at??? And the fact Taylor is STILL nominated for a VOCALIST award is a JOKE and a slap to the face for REAL VOCALISTS like Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride and Reba.
