This is always one of the best days of the year for me. I am always on pins and needles waiting to see who takes home what award. I wake up excited to see my friends and ready to hug the necks of the winners. I truly love what I do and I am inspired by all the talent we have out there. Do I love every single song on country radio right now? No, that's impossible. Do I think there are amazing artists that are often overlooked? Yes!! But this is the way it goes in this business, and there is one thing I know for sure, no one stands up there with an award in their hand without working hard for it. I admire anyone that can live through the rigors of being a new artist, and the established artists that find a way to stay relevant in an ever changing landscape leave me in awe. It's a tough business, but I love every single moment of it. Time to roll up my hair for another CMA red carpet. This is my 15th one and I am as giddy as the first. Here are a few pictures through the years.
