My favorite day of the year has finally arrived! Tonight all eyes will be on Nashville as the 47th Annual CMA Awards will be held live from Bridgestone Arena. Hosted for the sixth time by Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley, the night promises to be filled with plenty of glitz and glamour as country music’s biggest superstars take the stage. Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Kacey Musgraves, Carrie Underwood, and many, many, more are performing during the telecast as well as a special tribute to George Jones by George Strait and Alan Jackson. Of course the night will also honor the “best” of country music this past year. Coming into the night Taylor Swift and Kacey Musgraves are tied for the most nominations with six apiece. Here are my official predictions for who will walk away big winners tonight.

With his debut single “Storm Warning,” newcomer Hunter Hayes gained a wave of momentum after the song hit the top 15 at country radio. That momentum led him to his first ACM nomination and a spot on Carrie Underwood’s upcoming Blown Away Tour. Trying to keep that momentum going, the singer is hitting country radio with the second single off his Hunter Hayes album. How does “Wanted” compare to the album’s solid debut single?

It’s been over two years since we were last able to get our hands on a new album from Carrie Underwood. During that time she focused on her marriage to hockey player Mike Fisher and took a little break from touring and recording. Now she’s ready to make a comeback with her latest album, Blown Away. How does the new 14 song set compare to the singer’s previous three albums?
Well the 47th Annual Academy of Country Music awards are in the books. Last night the awards show was definitely dressed to fit Las Vegas with plenty of glitz, glamor, and upsets. Here’s ATC’s final wrap up of the night’s big winners as well as how I did with my predictions. Just a heads up, I didn’t do too well.
To say that the new single from Carrie Underwood was highly anticipated would be an understatement. I don’t remember a single ever generating as much hype and buzz than this. The fires began late last year when we got word that a new album would be released from the country superstar this year. Fuel was added to the flame a few weeks ago when we learned the release date for the single. The flames reached an all time high days ago when Carrie released a behind-the-scenes video of her in the studio listening to “Good Girl.” Now the single is officially released and hitting radio airwaves across the country. So the question is, is the song worth the over 2 year wait to hear new music from Carrie?
