    And the nominees are…The Same Tired & Boring Singers who have monopolized all the award shows for the past 5 years…

    TAYLOR SWIFT IS NOT COUNTRY. When will people get it. Living in Nashville does not mean you are country and should not qualify her for anything having to do for country music. Hopefully, when the awards show comes, she won't win anything. Then she'll realize that's not what she is anymore.

    Yep, Taylor Swift should not be nominated! She doesn't make country music, it's pop..

    Just because Taylor has a whiny baby-talking voice that's annoying as Hell doesn't mean she a country singer…

    I don't understand how Carrie Underwood is only nominated for two awards!? Taylor swift does not deserve all those nominations…her album is good but it is hardly Country music. Sick of Carrie getting snubbed all the time.

    We need a good country station here in LA. We used to have a good one at 93.9 but then they got some AM drive time DJ who tried to turn everything all political. So one PM my hubby picked me up at work and I wondered why the heck he had on hip hop - turns out the
    DJ caused a lot of problems and the station switched to "Dance Music" so I have been listening to smooth jazz and the occasional venture into Oldies and Classical.
    Remember the good old days in the mid-70's and first got turned on to country by real musicians like Waylong Jennings (God rest his soul) and Willie Nelson, doing the Outlaw bit.

    Taylor Swift basically used country music to get her foot in the door and left it the second she got famous enough. She was first a country wannabee and now she's a pop wannabee.

    Who are you all to say who is country or not? If someone is nominated for any ACM award they are considered country artists. Yeah Taylor makes pop songs but she also makes folk type of music. If you all don't get it, Taylor experiments with her music and she was never fully country to start with. She even said so herself that she is country/pop. Country songs speak the truth and that is exactly what she is doing. Lay off of her.
