2013 CMA Award Nominations: Kacey Musgraves, Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton Sweep!

The CMA Award nominations were announced this morning by Florida Georgia Line and Sheryl Crow, and I have to say, I’m pretty content with the nominations. Are there a few things I would change? Sure. I’m not a fan of FGL, I’d rather see Gloriana make their way into the nominations, and more females in the Entertainer of the Year category. But overall, I feel like they got it pretty right this year. I’m so happy to see Kacey Musgraves absolutely all over the place! I hope when it comes to wins, she gets a lot of them (especially for the writer credits, since I think she truly excels there). Check out the nominations below! My picks are in bold, let me know yours!
