I Love the ACM Awards
Sitting here watching the ACM awards and I just love them. I'd say they are my favorite awards show. Sure it doesn't hurt that one of my favorites, Luke Bryan, is the host, but it's more than that.
I think I like that the show is just about the music. They have the best artists on to sing the best songs and 90% of the show is just that. They don't show awards for dozens of awards that nobody cares about. They dont' have someone that nobody has heard of come up and give a 5 minute speech that nobody can follow. It's simply celebrating the music and the artists.
Tonight's show has been good once again. The highlight had to be Taylor Swift's mom giving her the milestone award. IT was just announced that her mom was battling cancer so it was emotional. The only moment that topped that was the surprise appearance (in the audience) by Randy Travis who has been very sick for well over a year. There were times that the country music family thought they had lost him, so to see him live and in person was uplifting.
I wish more awards shows spent time honoring their art than trying to sell advertisements. Well done ACMs.
