Of Course the ACM Awards Sucked... That's Why I Watch!

If you are like most people who listen to some form of country music you know by now that the ACM award show was on last night. And of course today I have seen so many people asking why others bother to talk crap or waste time on the big music award shows. It's simple really. It's the same reason I go to awful, cheesy, low grade horror movies. It's funny to me.

To me, those award shows contain entertainment value simply based on what I like to call the "train wreck potential." I posted dozens of comments about the show last night on my RDBC Facebook page and they were all in fun. I know it's going to be bad. That's part of the fun of it for me.

Every now and then we get lucky with a Texas artist getting thrown a bone in a speech because they wrote the best song Nashville put out last year. Or I don't know, maybe even win the Album of The Year. (GO KACEY MUSGRAVES). Those are simply icing on the cake moments. And this year there were a few of them.

The Merle Haggard tribute was spot on. That's how an artist tribute should be. It was also nice to see him get the Crystal Milestone Award (albeit years after Aldean and Taylor Swift won WTF ACM's?) Also, hats off to Garth Brooks for taking off his hat when he shook Merle Haggard's hand. That's country right there y'all. Nothing like the two clowns hosting the show joking about taking selfies with George Strait who was obviously not impressed with the joke.

Also, who doesn't love a good after show controversy because a losing team gets pissy? It's human nature to be intrigued by turmoil and chaos. Camp Luke Bryan has proven to be the whiners of the week in their bashing of George Strait after he bit out the mangina king Luke for Entertainer of the year.

 I understand that some people don't appreciate it at all. Just like some people don't appreciate cheesy films... That's the beauty of this life, we don't all share the same opinions and views. I'll take a good laugh over just being complaining about the state of music every day.
