Performances by artists like Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, and wife Miranda Lambert left country fans like me satisfied with the outcomes and procession of the event; however, considering I’m also a Taylor Swift fan, I must admit I was a bit disappointed that she did not win the one award she was nominated for, Female Vocalist of the Year. But it is to be expected since she has strayed from the country genre in her later albums and Miranda Lambert is an outstanding artist.
