Why No Love For Blake Shelton At The CMA’s?
We already told you about how the Country Music Awards is brimming with talent competition show people. But there is one notable exception: Blake Shelton. He isn’t nominated in any category. What the heck is going on?
If there is one person that is the king of country music right now it’s 100% Blake Shelton. His records always top the charts and his concerts sell out. It isn’t the old stigma of people that work for or were on talent competition shows because there are plenty of people like Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, and Keith Urban who are nominated. Blake isn’t even slated to present.
Is it overexposure? Perhaps. Maybe the old fuddy duddies at the CMA‘s don’t like how popular he is with non-country fans. Maybe they think he’s sold out to the mainstream and isn’t country enough anymore. I don’t know. All I know is that it is BS. Blake deserves to at least be nominated as performer of the year.
