Although I grew up in Brooklyn, NY, I have always loved country music. Growing up I listened to Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, Reba, Barbara Mandrel, and other country stars. These artists were among my first album purchases as well.
Country Music continues to be a major part of my playlist today with Eric Church, Garth Brooks, Reba, and more. You can catch me blasting it in my car, singing along, and attending concerts with friends whenever I can.
I can't believe this Sunday is the 50th Academy of Country Music Awards! I'll be watching (and tweeting of course). I'm always honored to be part of #CMchat and you can tweet along with us tomorrow night by using the hashtag. There will be some fun community questions and LOTS to talk about! Be sure to follow the founder of CMchat too, my friend @JessicaNorthey and @CMchatLive!
I put together a cheat sheet of nominees so you can follow along and make your predictions. Please feel free to tell me who YOU think will win in the comments! I do LOVE hearing from you!
Entertainer of the Year (Vote from April 8 until the third hour of the live broadcast)
Florida Georgia Line
Male Vocalist of the Year
Female Vocalist of the Year
The annual MTV Movie Awards air tonight on MTV at 8PM (Pre-show red carpet starts at 7:30) hosted by the hysterical Amy Shumer. I always look forward to this award show because, 1) I just love award shows and 2) It's a little more relaxed than the ones I normally attend.
Tonight, Shailene Woodley is appropriately being honored with the Trailblazer award, which I think is well deserved while Kevin Hart will be receiving the Comedic Genius Award. 2014/2015 have definitely been big years for both of these honorees.
In addition to these awards, I have listed the nominees so we can follow along. I'd LOVE to hear your predictions and thoughts in the comments and it will be a real treat to tweet with you tonight during the show. Look for me on Twitter (@teeco71).
Also scheduled to appear are: Vin Diesel, Chris Evans, Dwayne Johnson, Jimmy Kimmel, Sofia Vergara, Reese Witherspoon, and more surprises I'm sure!
