CMA AWARDS - WAS THAT COUNTRY MUSIC LAST NIGHT?

WAS THAT COUNTRY MUSIC LAST NIGHT??

Here's the complete list of winners from the 46th Annual CMA Awards:
Entertainer of the Year: Blake Shelton
Album of the Year: Chief, Eric Church
Female Vocalist of the Year: Miranda Lambert
Male Vocalist of the Year: Blake Shelton
Vocal Group of the Year: Little Big Town
Single of the Year: "Pontoon," Little Big TownSong of the Year: "Over You," Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert (songwriters)

Music Video of the Year: "Red Solo Cup," Toby Keith
New Artist of the Year: Hunter Hayes

First of all I offer congratulations to those who won awards, especially Willie Nelson’s Lifetime Achievement Award as it will be known from here on, and Blake Shelton putting the hurt on everyone else with his awards collection. Blake Shelton’s acceptance speech about the loss of his Dad and brother was as strong and sincere as I have ever heard. At least we could hear him speak. All of my comments are not sour grapes just because I am older and because I am not hearing the fiddles and steel guitars as much as all of us did at one time. I have always kept up with the times and the changes in music, but I know what I seen and what I heard last night.

It is sad that that Martina McBride or Reba did not win female vocalist of the year or George Strait, Vince Gill, and Alan Jackson as male vocalists, to name a few, who are still recording country.

My thoughts regarding last night’s guitars and drums show was that it was just another show that ABC produced with a rock n roll attitude. Sunglasses, baseball caps, rock n roll sounds blasting out, the male artists dressed like they were getting ready to drive their semi cross country with chains hanging down their legs, seedy looking jeans, T-Shirts, and steel guitarist standing up to play rock. If that is what country music is coming to, then I think there is trouble ahead for the music. Award shows are supposed to be glitz and glamour, not funky jeans and T-Shirts, and chains.

I can accept the changing of the guard because that is inevitable, but passing the torch to this group of artists (not all of them) is going to burn the flame completely out because it has only been flickering for several years.

Will CMA ever have complete control over “their own show” and dictate who and what is a part of the show instead of having a network come to town and produce a show that they still don’t know much about-evidently. No doubt the network wants faces and bodies on the show that will draw viewers to watch, because last night the artists’ vocals were buried in the guitar amps and the drum sets. Their contract with ABC needs to be renegotiated.

I watched what was supposed to be the 46th Annual CMA “Country Music” Awards Show last night, but it stunk up the evening for me. Where the hell was the country music. And once again ABC hired another sound tech that did not have his hearing aid on last night, because the sound was shameful. I watched the entire show and we could not understand what anyone was singing.
Some of the artists had ear monitors and still were singing flat, and probably did not know it, it was so loud. Go ahead and ask some of your friends if they could understand the vocals. With guitars blaring through rock amplifiers, and guitarist and bass players with their legs spread far enough apart that you could drive a Mac truck through, drummers with Mohican haircuts, nasty looking bands, and if Eric Church, Luke Bryan, and Jason Aldean are the changing of the guard in country music artists, that is scary. These new artists of today are all making big bucks at the expense of calling themselves country. I will give them one thing in their favor-they sure have great marketing people. With the awards other than tribute awards, comes the artist’s financial status changing as well, as their performance fee automatically increases dramatically!!!!! Does money rule their career or does it ruin their careers?

The best part of the evening was the tribute and award to Willie Nelson. If you watched the camera man panning Willie while the artists butchered his music, you noticed that he looked like he didn’t know what the hell was going on. It almost looked like he was saying, “are those my songs!!!!” Thank God he came on stage to put his music back in place. But Willie gave credit to the music tribute as he is always so good with words. But it took the country music industry a long time to pay tribute to this man of all seasons of music-it took almost a lifetime. I would have thought ABC would have invited Ray Price, one of Willie’s best friends, to present the award to him, but no, the legends, elders, and veterans, are not allowed to be seen at the CMA Rockin in the Country Awards Show. Possibly they do not want to attend a rock concert. I guess the powers to be figures they only need to pay homage to these artists when one of them passes on.

If I am wrong in what I am hearing, seeing, and feeling, please somebody tell me, but please send your suggestion to CMA on how a country awards show should be. Maybe those of us who feel this way are just a minority because the major record labels, management companies, and PR people keep their artist’s believing they are superstars-in their own eyes.

If this 46th CMA Awards Show was a glimpse of the future of country music, then country music took a left turn when they should have turned right. Just sitting watching these male artists singing was enough to make me sick to my stomach. At least Aldean had his guitar and a hat that goes with country music, and most of the male artists who sang with a wireless must have thought they were rap artists. And then I read a lot of off colored comments about Taylor Swift. Every female artist in “country music” “today” needs to thank this young lady for the doors she has opened for herself and all of them. You might consider her the modern day “Kitty Wells.” Now don’t go preaching to me for that statement. I knew Kitty Wells and I know what she meant to real country music, but I DID NOT HEAR ANY REAL COUNTRY MUSIC LAST NIGHT UNTIL WILLIE NELSON ARRIVED ON STAGE TO SING “ON THE ROAD AGAIN.”

It was nice to see Connie Smith and Willie Nelson in the audience, but I wonder where Alan Jackson, George Jones, Jean Shepard, Stonewall Jackson, Bill Anderson, Jim Ed Brown, and the other real country music artists were last night. Will we ever see the likes of The Statler Bros., The Oak Ridge Boys, or Alabama again? I do not see any groups who will be a part of the country music scene in the near future. Maybe they no longer feel they are a part of what country music once was. It is almost like the Grand Ole Opry and how they induct new members and then they never see them again. CMA needs to make it a policy to invite the legends of country music to awards show and seat them in a section where they can be seen by the live audience and also the TV audience, because the guys and gals of today, most of them, will never reach legendary status, because they do not know how to treat the honor of being legendary. Possibly Reba, Paisley, Underwood, McBride, Gill, and some others will carry the title soon, but Eric Church, Jason Aldean, and Luke Bryan need to enjoy all the good times they can handle now, because a fan base is difficult to keep in this day and time, so let’s take another look at their careers in five (5) years. If they are still making what they call country records, I will tip my hat to them.


Times have changed and we have to move with the times, but country radio and major record labels have been turncoats when it comes to playing and making country records. There is a place on every radio station in this country for traditional country music. I am not beating a dead horse on this subject, just trying to keep an open mind as to what is the definition of country music. It certainly was not defined last night. When an artist is singing and all you can hear is the blasting guitar riffs and a drummer who thinks he has two piece of timber that he needs to whittle down and then call them drumsticks. It looks as if some of these musicians are taking their attitudes out on their instruments and the sound tech doesn’t know enough to pull the gain slide down on them so that they do not overrun the singer, which they did all night. I guess the artist is just as much to blame for allowing this. That is why they have earphones so that they can hear only themselves and block out all of the instruments, and whoever the sound tech is, should go back to school.

My last comment is that I love Brad Paisley’s singing, his awesome guitar playing and I love Carrie Underwood’s great selection of song material and her super voice, but I would think it is time for Vince Gill to return to the podium of hosting the CMA Awards Show and possibly ask Dolly to co-host the show in 2013, maybe even ask Garth to co-host, or how about Vince Gill and Mel Tillis. That would be exactly what the awards show needs.

I have made my comments and I am always open to your comments, pro or con, but PLEASE DON’T TELL ME THE SOUND WAS GOOD LAST NIGHT-IT WAS HORRENDOUS.
