CMA Awards

My lovely wife 'snuck' us into the Country Music Awards tonight (row V on the main floor). Every country artist that performed did a great job. Performances by Reba, the new group Big & Rich, and Toby Keith, who performed from Iraq, were perhaps three of the best. Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban had big years, and each won a couple of awards apiece. The big winners were Gretchen Wilson (Female Artist of the Year and Newcomer of the Year) and newly-wed Kenny Chesney (Entertainer of the Year). Rob Schneider, with co-presenter Neal McCoy as his straight man, was the funniest presenter, while Garth Brooks, in a touching presentation, honored Chris Ledoux, who passed away March 9 of this year, with the Pioneer Award. My lovely wife and I had a great time. Thanks Mandalay Bay!
