Nothing stays the same. I love the country music of the 60s and 70s, so I don't fault your nostalgia. I just think there's room in the format for all kinds of music.

I can't wait to see the CMAs tonight. Should be one heck of a show!
I love country music today, but I didn't when I was in College here in the 70s. I probably didn't like it because that is all my father had on every day. Recently when I went to the Country Music Hall of Fame, I reconized all the Legends my father listened to.
I do like George Stait though.

Faith Hill was probably worried she's have another tantrum.

Did Miranda Lambert kick butt or what?! Kellie Pickler too. Someone should go teach her mama a lesson. Broke my heart.

I didn't watch it; I'm not much on award shows of any type. There's only so many "Why, shucks, I'm so . . . so surprised to get this award" speeches I can take, especially when their record label spends a couple of hundred thousand dollars campaigning for them.

If I had remembered I would have flipped over to see the Eagles however.

I was sleeping.

Not a big fan of the Pickler. Why? What happened?

She performed a song she co-wrote about being abandoned by her mom, who left for California. She totally broke down at the end, but it felt genuine, not manufactured. It was intense.

It was awesome watching the Eagles. They still got what it takes.

I watched the Eagle played a charity baseball game years ago in Nashville. They were "big" at the time, but not nearly as big as they would eventually be.

As I recall, one of their albums and one of Fleetwood Mac's albums were the first albums to cost over a million dollars just to produce. This was in the early 80's sometime.

Was that just for the coke, or did it go to studio costs as well?
