CMA Nominees Announced
CMA Nominees Announced

It was a great morning for Florida Georgia Line. They joined Sheryl Crow to announce the nominees for the 2013 CMA Awards and their name was called a couple of times.

What do you think of the nominees? With the success of Redneck Crazy, I really expected to see Tyler Farr. Maybe the song came out after the CMA deadline? Where’s Hunter Hayes? Brad Paisley??
