The CMA Award nominations are out and Eric Church, Maren Morris and Chris Stapleton have five each. I wanna get your pick on a few of the tougher categories…Entertainer of the Year; Garth, Luke Bryan, Chris Stapleton, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban. Female Vocalist; Kelsea Ballerini, Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves and Carrie Underwood. Male Vocalist; Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, Tim McGraw, Chris Stapleton and Keith Urban. New Artist; Kelsea Ballerini, Brothers Osborne, Maren Morris, Old Dominion and Cole Swindell. Interestingly 4 big stars were shut out; Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean and Sam Hunt. The CMA’s air November 2 with hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood. 

Zac Brown Band are among those helping honor men and women who serve our country at the USO Gala with Ryan Seacrest in Washington DC October 20. 

Next time you’re in Nashville, I know Kelsea Ballerini often eats at 5th and Taylor, it’s in an old factory in Germantown and she also loves the Mexican food at Bartaco. 

Carrie Underwood’s tour took her to Alaska last night so yesterday she, Mike and Isaiah took a hike to see the beauty but her son was asleep for most of it. 

Finally - Brett Eldredge tweeted last night, “my bed feels like a cloud...and I love to sing in it...."
