CMAs 2011

I am sooo excited to see the CMAs this year. I have loved country music since I could walk and talk. I remember listening to Reba, Loretta(my first concert ha) & Johnny Cash and singing my heart out. Santa brought me a karaoke machine when I was about 9 and I wore that sucker out. I remember one of the songs I had was 9 to 5 by Dolly. When I got my license at 16 I rode around town singing my heart out to Kenny Chesney, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw and Jo Dee Messina. Now as a mother I still sing like no ones listening in the car & my boys tell me to turn Daddys music on (Rock) lol but Country is where I am from. I can relate to most of the songs because I live them down here in Georgia!!! So tonight we get to celebrate the artist & the industry!!! Plus I cant wait to see a few of my favs dressed up. :)  Here are my predictions on how it will go tonight!!!  Like you care but I wanna see if I am a good guesser. Cause I know yall really value my imput HA!
