  1. Congrats to Carrie, Kellie, and Chris on winning this prestigious award. That is pretty awesome to win a song writing award. Plus that’s were the money really is at. Cha Ching. :-)

    Danny Looks good

  2. Congrats to all. Here’s Comes Goodbye is O.K. — but I still think Empty Me is Chris’ best work. Banner year for Mr. Sligh.

    p.s. does Danny only own one shirt?

  3. t2…actually this is the first time I have seen this particular shirt on Danny (other Danny “watchers” and fans feel free to correct this), although he does often wear this style and he seems to love plaid.

    dhunken, I agree with you….Danny looks good.

    Congrats to all the winners! Without the songwriters we wouldn’t have a chance to hear our favorite artists….and for those that can write AND sing too that really shows tremendous talent.

  4. asics83, I am a casual Danny fan and this shirt looks familiar. But it could be he has found a style that works for him and is working it (kinda like me an plain black pumps.) And yes, Danny looks good :-)

  5. Congrats to Carrie, Kellie and Chris. The songs for Kellie and Chris are pretty old and have won other awards. Carrie’s is a more recent song.

    Anyway, Danny’s fans were discussing his attire last night when the pictures first appeared. Some, including myself, thought Danny was a little under-dressed for the event but his plaid shirt did have fancy trim and was shinier than his normal plaid shirts lol plus there were others in attendance who were as casual. He does look good though.

  6. looking forward to seeing and hearing more of Casey James through Sony/BNA Nashville.

  7. Hope to catch a glimpse (at least) of Casey on the CMA awards
    show tonight!

  8. Casey’s been getting some good press this week. It’s nice to see the respect he’s been getting without even having his single out yet. They give him kudos each time he has played/written with people in Nashville!

    Congrats to Carrie, Kellie and Chris!

  9. does Danny own only one shirt!

    Lol; he does like his plaid. I actually think this is a new shirt; kind of a dressy one. Is that pathetic that I know that? Oh yes.

    He’s taken to tshirts lately (my preference to plaid, lol). I think he has so many events coming up he’s probably trying to save $$- putting his money toward the AMA hosting outfit and the ACA awards show, where as a nominee, I’m sure he’ll be dressed more formerly.
    I guess at least he didn’t wear overalls like Rory!

    He looks really good in those photos, but I’m looking forward to seeing formal wear in the near future ;)

  10. idol23:

    I doubt we will see Casey on the TV broadcast. But I would expect to dig up some interviews on the red carpet preshow on line. There were lots of nice pics and some interviews with Danny last year, so I would imagine we should get some of Casey too.

  11. WOW – congrats out to Carrie (my fave)… Kellie and Chris. I have become more impressed with Mr. Sligh as time has gone on. Casey was looking good too!

    I think Danny was within (if not by a lot) the acceptable range of dress for the BMI awards. He’s got great management and a stylist who (that Joe Nichols jacket thing aside, lol) has done very well by him, so I imagine they gave it some reasonable thought even if they chose to go with a different look this time. I like the hair and the choice of eyewear for last night.

    Casey looks nice, big improvement in the hair department from some of those videos from Sunday’s press opportunities. Not a big fan of that look for Carrie, at least from what I can see in the photos.

    I prefer him in teeshirts too, and lately he’s been wearing those awesome vintage teeshirts. I love his Marvin the Martian one, and I saw Darius Rucker has the same shirt. Hmmm…could they be working together? I think Danny looks sexiest in teeshirts (or a vest over a teeshirt) because of the way that look shows off his build. He’s in tip top shape. (I’m so shallow!) I also love the tight jeans he wears and the ever present wallet chains. I’m not feeling the plaid so much, but Danny sure does seem to like plaid, and he does look good in it. I’m not sure that was the best outfit he could do, even with the sparkliness on it. It still looks too dressed down. That shirt reminds me a lot of the shirt he wore at his Top 3 homecoming, and at first I thought it was the same one, so I think people who thought it looked familiar might be thinking of that one.

    Oh gosh! I certainly hope Danny dresses up more at the ACAs next month. I’m sure he will, he might even be wearing a tux, since there’s a possibility he could actually win. Be still, my heart. /fantard.

    Hee, it makes me laugh the way Danny somehow seems to dominate the discussion even when he’s not the main topic. But I’m not complaining!

    Casey looks smokin’ hot! But that’s nothing new, lol
