    I love George Strait. And if you ^ aren't going to post something constructive, then "with all due respect" **** off. Country is just as good as any other genre and just because there isn't some guy wanking off a solo on his guitar while screaming about blood and death doesn't mean it's not a good genre. If you don't like it, don't come here, and piss off. Back to the actual News. I hope Brooks and Dunn get near everything they're nominated for, as well as Rascal Flatts. Two great country groups. And Kelly Clarkson has a hell of a voice. All in all, seems like a good rewards show.
