Todd, Susan and I are very honored to once again be nominated for the CMA Award for Small Market Radio Personalities of the Year. We have won this twice in the past and this is our 5th nomination. We are so proud of this honor and thank you for being with us all these years to make this all possible for us.

This is always a great show and this year should be a great one as usual. There will be some huge performances but as I look over the list of who will be playing I have picked the 5 I am personally most looking forward to seeing on Wednesday night.

I am so proud of my friends Dan + Shay and I cannot wait to see them perform and then hopefully take home some much deserved awards. I think they will knock us out. Garth Brooks is always amazing and the chance to see him perform is always something to look forward to. Midland is one of my favorite bands and I am anxious to see them on that big stage and soaking up the love they deserve from their incredible debut album. The Pistol Annies are scheduled to perform and that a treat anytime you get a chance to Miranda Lambert lead this dynamite trio. The one that I think will have people talking will be Chris Stapleton with Maren Morris and Mavis Staples. Something tells me where are going to feel like standing up and shouting "amen" during this one.

I will be tuned in Wednesday night to see who will take home the hardware. Hope you will tune in to celebrate the year in country music as well.
