Brad for EOTY

He may not have received it this year, but I doubt it will be very long before Brad wins an Entertainer of the Year award. Case in point; although the CMA's are voted on by the industry, CMT.com hosted an online vote for fan's to determine their EOTY pick, and Brad won the poll with 35% of the votes, over Chesney's 16%.

Unlike Kenny, Brad's a triple threat with his wonderful vocals, amazing songwriting, and his jaw-dropping guitar skills. I predict he'll be rewarded for this within the next 3 years.

Good luck next year Brad!

Brad didn't get it this year, but he may yet win it in 2009. Kenny's been slipping lately. I've heard that he received several bad reviews this year for some of his performances, as well as sub-par audio at a few venues.

On the other hand, Brad's been hitting his stride lately and the industry has been acknowledging his efforts. His latest album has put him in very rare company. He was recently mentioned as one of the top guitarist of any genre. And since the sad passing of Jerry Reed, he's now considered the finest in country music.

Like you, I'm a big fan of Chesney. I also think Urban is awesome. But when it comes right down to it, Paisley traditional country style wins me over every time. He hasn't abandon the roots of country as his music has gotten more commercial. I believe Chesney and, to a lessor degree, Urban are both guilty of losing touch of that country heritage.

Brad will win one soon enough. You can't keep a good man down; or in Brad's case, you can't keep a great entertainer down! So Joni, I hope you're right!
