  1. Great to see some love for Play On and a nomination for her songwriting (Cowboy Casanova)!

    Small correction: Some Hearts won Album of The Year in 2007, not 2006.

  2. Congrats Carrie!! I’m very surprised by the Cowboy Casanova nomination bc I thought it had a chance to be nominated for Single Of The Year but instead it got nominated for Song. I’ll take it though.

    IMO the big stories coming out the ACMs will be Lady A officially being installed as the IT country(ish) act of 2010 and Miranda Lambert. Miranda should and will win Album Of The Year, and Lady A’ll probably win wherever Need You Now is nominated plus it will win Vocal Group Of The Year. If Carrie can sneak in a win in a couple categories especially Female Vocalist I’d be really happy but it’s all up in the air. Miranda’s got a real chance at winning her 1st Female Vocalist too and I wouldn’t begrudge her that. Heck even Carrie’s said she’d lose an award to Miranda any day.

  3. Congratulations to Carrie! if she wins another award, she’ll have to buy a small house just for her awards. LOL. Carrie, the idol that have sold the most and also awarded the most.

  4. No way in hell Carrie gets EOY if Taylor is nominated to, It’s fans voting… we all know how that goes.

  5. Congrats Carrie!!! Play On was a great album, so I really hope that wins. If Taylor beats her for best female vocalist I will scream

  6. If Taylor Swift wins anything, I will scream. That seems pretty likely as she’ll probably win Entertainer of the Year. Lady Antebellum will probably sweep the ACMs at my expense, winning all the categories they were nominated in except Album Of The Year. I believe that Need You Now is almost devoid of any country and is most certainly not a country album. I think Miranda will block Lady A. for Album Of The year and may prevent Carrie from winning Female Vocalist Of The Year. I think Vocal Event of the Year is what Carrie is most likely to win.

    Fearless won last year and I think we can agree the same is true of it. And let’s be fair when Some Hearts won ACM Album Of The Year in 2007 that was a half country half pop compromise album even though the country side is way more country than anything Taylor or Lady A have done.

    But ITA Miranda’s getting Album Of The Year and she really deserves it. I love Play On best of Carrie’s albums but I feel she hasn’t reached her potential yet.

    I can see Vocal Event going to Blake Shelton/Trace Adkins for Hillbilly Bone even though ITYS is by far the best in that category. Hillbilly Bone will be fresher in people’s minds. It’s possible that Carrie’ll get shut out of her nominations but if that happens then I bet they’ll give her the Triple Crown Award that she’s eligible for since she’s won the ACM for Top New Female Vocalist, Top Female Vocalist, and Entertainer Of The Year. She’ll be the 1st female Triple Crown winner since Barbara Mandrell. That way Carrie’ll still be able to give a speech.

    I agree entirely and think it’s possible that Carrie will get shut out of her nominations, but they’ll give her the Triple Crown if that were to happen.

  9. Congrats to Carrie and Miranda for their 6 nominations; I hope they both get the awards they deserve. I give more respect to these ladies to stick to the root rather than some country artists who did crossover and remix their songs to get more publication and attention.

    Hopefully Carrie & Miranda could do tour together as they dreams ‘a girl power tour’ :)
