THE ONLY THING I FIND DISTURBING (AS A RULE I'M PRETTY OPEN MINDED ABOUT MY COUNTRY MUSIC) IS THE FACT THAT SOOOOO MANY ROCK STARS AND RAPPERS SEEM TO BE INFILTRATING OUT COUNTRY MUSIC AWARD SHOWS! THIS IS AFTER ALL *COUNTRY * MUSIC. NOT THE ALL GENRE AWARDS!! OK, SO YOU ALL HAVE HAD YOUR FUN,AND I'VE HAD MY SAY,SOOOO HOW ABOUT GOING HOME TO MTV AND WE'LL BE JUST FINE ON OUR OWN RIGHT HERE IN *OUR* COUNTRY MUSIC! IT'S GETTING LIKE THE OLD JOKE ABOUT IN-LAWS THAT DON'T WANT TO LEAVE! MAYBE.... A MOTHER -IN-LAW SUITE IN THE BACK FOR THEM?

Seriously? That is his style, he's the newer country. He's not Toby Keith, or Alan Jackson. I honestly prefer him in a baseball cap better, it suits him. Male country stars do not have to always be in the cliche plaid shirt, cowboy hat get up (although it does like good), but having their own style makes them unique. And Luke's style of clothing and hats reflects his music.

It was great to see Toby Keith & Alan Jackson!!!  I would appreciate hearing more of a mix of artists singing from the rising stars and those that paved the way and are still producing number 1 hits such as George Strait; Randy Travis, Reba, Terri Clark etc.

you know I've read many of these Articles you so call "journalistic writers" write after I've watched these award shows the night before, and you need to find something nice to say about these events not just slam them all the time, because I thought Luke Bryan was awesome when he turned his hat around.  Extremely cute!  Give these people some credit.  It sounds like you critiques/writers are all envious!!  You sound horrible.  I'm going to just start enjoying the pictures, and not read your cruddy comments.  And I thought you had to get a degree to become a writer.  Doesn't sound like it.

Well put anyone can scream like that. I really DO NOT think she should have got that award. It was great seeing Alan Jackson  ( a real country singer)

You would think that Mike Fisher would have taken a little more care with his appearance with such a lovely wife performing. I do love him though but he just looks so sloppy. Carrie as usual looks great.

Hank Williams Jr. has no talent anyway, and has always gotten by on his Dad's name. Now, Hank Senior that was TALENT. Too bad he let the demons take his life at such a young age.

Please stop hating on Luke!  He is a wonderfully talented artist who has it all going on.......great voice, great writer, incredibly funny, not hard to look at and genuinely a nice guy.  I'm personally glad he doesn't wear a large cowboy hat........it would hide his gorgeous face!  Mark my words.......this man is going to be a huge star.  If you have ever been to one of his concerts you will know what I'm talking about!  We love you Luke!!

Altho I do prefer to see a country singer in a cowboy hat - hey - look at Zack Brown - Boarder's hat!!!  Doesn't affect his singing tho - Colder Weather being the perfect example

I’m a Lonesome Boy in Tennessee! Just a Lonesome Boy in Tennessee!

One day … I could be as great as Brad Paisley! One day even win a Grammy!

When one strives for success so faithfully …! Nashville can be so dang friendly!

Everyday … a new song shines so brightly …! Inspired by country music history!

I just upped the ante n I truly love country …!  Country music makes life a worthy journey!

When you’re trying to walk in the footsteps of Dolly …! The streets can get mighty dusty!

Makes one live life humbly …! Into heaven I’ll be giving a pass-key!  

In country music I ain’t a rookie!  Already put together a country music medley!

With dignity … with the mighty Yankee! In Tennessee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In Tennessee!

I’m a lonesome boy in Tennessee! Trying to keep my act together so suavely!

Fiddle’ee Dee … Fiddle’ee Dee! I’m a lonesome boy in Tennessee!
