I could see the collective groan from country music fans last night on Twitter when Taylor Swift took the People’s Choice Award for Best Country Artist.
Keep in mind there are a lot of non-country fans who vote. So it wasn’t a big surprise when I heard “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” nanoseconds after the envelope was opened on stage last night. It’s some kind of award show rule – Taylor must win at least one award every 30 minutes.
Now don’t think I’m hatin’ on Taylor. She’s talented. But I think a lot of country fans are getting a little irritated. Is she really the face of country music? Does her music represent us? We know America chose Taylor. I was curious to see who COUNTRY MUSIC fans alone would have chosen to win. WQYK.com poll takers’ choice was clear. Jason Aldean should’ve been the winner.
The nominees were Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Taylor Swift and Tim McGraw. Who else should have been nominated? Leave your thoughts in the comments area at the bottom of the page!
