people seemed to be upset when Carrie Underwood won entertainer of the year.
She is very deserving of the award, however, they showed George Strait after she won, and you could see his face and he was not happy. Now I love George Strait as much as the next person, and I know he isn't always going to win, but he could be happy for her, she can belt out those songs, and she has an incredible range
I think in part that Carrie Underwood burst on the scene from a huge win from American Idol, and she deserved it. She brought with her a HUGE fan base from American Idol and did not have to go through years and years of what many of these veteran performers had to go through......thus winning her first year at the CMA's Female Vocalist..... Its understandable that they might be jealous and a bit upset however, that doesn't make her less deserving.
Secondly the ACM awards are tallied differently than the CMA awards. The majority of the ACM awards are voted on by people who belong to the Academy, singers, songwriters, musicians, etc. Totally different group of people than those who cast ballots for the CMA Awards.
Plus, the Entertainer of the year was voted on by the public.....and as much as I love George Strait, and as great of a musician and superstar he is in the Country Genre, you have to look at how people react and what is new on the scene. I have only seen him look that unhappy one other time, and that was when the Dixie Chicks won Entertainer of the year......I was unhappy with that too, a lot of people were, and since then we have seen them only once on the CMA's, but they got themselves blackballed out of the music industry to the point if they want to cut an album they have to subcontract the work because no one will work with them....
But that's another rant.
Why can't George and the Boys be happy for the success that Carrie Underwood has achieved, she has worked hard for it, and she is very very deserving of that success.
