With the 51st Annual Academy of Country Music Awards happening this Sunday night we don't have a lot of time left to talk about the artists and the categories that they are nominated in this year. In this blog I want to focus on the folks nominated for artist on the year. It is a great group this time around which includes four men and one woman. The nominees are Eric Church, Garth Brooks, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and Miranda Lambert.

Breaking it down, it is a really exciting group of artists. It is actually hard for me to decide who would get my vote. but if I had to choose one who would I pick? Garth of course is the sentimental comeback favorite, but I not feeling that it is truly his to loose. Luke Bryan puts on a great show, no doubt. And if you are at all curious about Jason Aldean's chances let's just say he rocks. If you haven't caught him in concert yet you are in luck he is at Bethel Woods this summer. So that leaves Eric Church and Miranda Lambert. Eric of course is awesome on stage and never leaves his fan disappointed, but this Sunday night I will have to agree with a lot of people including Radio.com and go with the lady in the crowd. I am rooting for Miranda. Not because she's had a rough year but simply because she is great in concert, great to her fans and deserves it for all her hard work on the road.

Don't miss the show live on CBS at 8pm this Sunday Night and don't miss Miranda Live at Bethel Woods Thursday May 19th. Click here for tickets. It is my opinion you'll be seeing a winner no matter who wins on SUnday.
