    Same here. I really, really hope that Stapleton does a song by himself. That guy has what is probably the best voice of anyone that is in that building. It's amazing what he can do. And for it to be clouded with all those other singers is going to be pretty disappointing.

    The 52nd Country Music Association Awards is just about here, so now is the time to get excited about the performances. And even though the CMA's aren't quite as huge as some other awards, they always seem to execute some really awesome shows.

    Hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, the show will kick off with “What Makes You Country,” by two-time 'Entertainer of The Year' nominee, Luke Bryan. Afterwards, the rest of the awards will be scattered with collaborations from a slew of other stars.

    So far we have:

    Jason Aldean and Miranda Lambert - 'Drowns the Whiskey'

    Dierks Bentley and Brothers Osborne - 'Burning Man'

    Chris Stapleton, Maren Morris, Mavis Staples, Florida Georgia Line with Bebe Rexha - 'Meant to Be'

    Though we do not know what they will be singing just yet, other performers include:

    Keith Urban

    Kenny Chesney

    Kacey Musgraves

    Thomas Rhett

    Luke Combs

    Midland

    Brett Young

    Kelsea Ballerini

    Dan + Shay

    Old Dominion

    Pistol Annies.

    Though I have to mention one in particular. Garth Brooks will be performing a new song this year! That's probably going to be amazing. Brooks has got to be the king of country music shows, and I'm super excited to see what he's got in store for us.

    The show kicks off on 11/14 at 8 p.m. (EST) on ABC.

    I can't find the video. Being a corporation like it is, I bet that they had it all pulled.

    That's awesome of her to do. Took a ton of heart to stand on that specific stage and say those words. I'm sure Trump still has some sort of pull throughout the operation, so hopefully she doesn't get shunned for it.

    Everyone else outside of the pageant is going to look at her like a hero.

    The Royal Wedding is usually crammed with tons of festivities and interesting pieces, but something turned up this years that is just super cool. LEGO actually built a new creation at Legoland Windsor Resort. The set is incredibly detailed, as most of what they build for events like this are, but this one takes it to a whole new level.

    Special Lego characters for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stand outside a whopping 39,960 brick Windsor Castle. The set is in Legoland's Miniland attraction and has a crowd of 500 gathered around cheering for the newlyweds. The set took 11 creators longer than a month to build, combining a total of 752 hours. There are now a total of 80 million Lego bricks used at Legoland Windsor.

    I've never understood it either. And believe it or not.... The wedding will also be screened in nearly 200 theaters in the U.S.. It will be titled as 'Harry & Meghan: The Royal Wedding', and will show on May 19th.

    It didn't come as much of a surprise when the Harvey Weinstein stories broke. It's no question at this point that people knew what was going on for years, but no one wanted to speak out on it. Weinstein ruled Hollywood. And when you're the ruler of a kingdom, it doesn't matter what anyone says about you. What matters is that they either respect, or unfortunately in this case, fear you. After 84 women came forward with accusations of sexual misconduct by Weinstein, both Hollywood and the rest of the world exploded with people finally telling their own stories.

    And now fast forward to the present day and what we have is the "#MeToo" movement via social media. I won't get into it too much, but it's basically a way to speak out about your own stories on the topics of sexual harassment. Some say this is a bad way to go about it. Some say this is the only way to go about it. And some say "if you have a story go to the police, not the media". And I suppose a little bit of each view is correct. Either way, these stories need to be heard and people need to be held accountable for their actions. Help should always be there for any person in need.

    But as with any movement, especially one filtered through social media, there are a few that use it as an opportunity to attack people instead of progress what the movement is supposed to represent. Now, I will not say my opinion on who is right or wrong, as that is not for civilians (without any proof) to decide. But what I will say is that this country has due process. When you plaster someones name on social media with these types of allegations, true or not, it can ultimately ruin their lives. Unfortunately, some see this as an opportunity to do just that.

    So what's your opinion on the movement? Do you think it should be done via social media? I don't really see another way that hasn't already failed victims for years. It truly is a great outlet. But how can the story be told without ruining the person's life before due process has been upheld?

    Here is a perfect example of what I'm referring to. This was done beautifully.

    The Video Music Awards are finally upon us! This is one of my favorite awards shows due to the mix of so many different types of genres and people being rolled into one. They took a pretty big downturn in quality over the past few years, but I am really hoping they turn it around this year. It got way to politically correct and just all around too political for my taste. They even renamed the 'Moonman' statue to the 'Moon Person' statue. I'm not quite sure it was a necessary change, but I guess it's good as long as everyone is happy.

    The amount of performers at this year's Billboard Music Awards is quite impressive, well, at least a couple of them are. Normally I would say that most, if not all of the music award shows in the past 5 years have been stale and repetitive. And I still hold that same notion to be true for this one, but it has a little hope to actually be good. Two of the music industry's most celebrated icons, Cher and Celine Dion will be performing and accepting awards.

    Cher is set to receive the Icon Award and will be performing her well known song 'Believe'. This will be her first award show performance in 15 years. That has to be pretty scary, even for a veteran performer like her.

    Celine Dion will be performing 'My Heart Will Go On' to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the film 'Titanic'. I'm a bit confused as to why they chose that to be the reason for her performance, but that's what they are going with. I feel like they could have focused a bit more on her music career or her being an icon, rather than it being about a film anniversary.

    I am really hoping these two will put on an amazing show. If they pull it off like I think they will, hopefully it sets the bar a little higher than the insanely dry award shows we've been given the past few years.

    Other performers this year:

    Drake

    The Chainsmokers

    Halsey

    Florida Georgia Line

    Sam Hunt

    Imagine Dragons

    John Legend

    Lorde

    Bruno Mars

    Nicki Minaj

    Ed Sheeran

    And on a related note, please people.... relax with the obnoxious political and religious views. We watch these awards shows to be entertained and escape from reality for a bit. Not to be bombarded with what you think needs to be pushed on the viewers. And if you try to say you're just "being you" and not pushing your way of thinking onto the people watching, you're also lying. We get enough of that stuff crammed into our day. Please relax with it.

    Chris Cornell, who most will know from the bands Soundgarden and Audioslave, has passed away at the young age of 52 years old. I have to say, this one stings quite a bit. I grew up listening to both bands regularly, and continued listening to his solo stuff to this day. I specifically remember my brother telling me like a decade ago that Cornell had one of the best voices he'd ever heard, and would go on to be something special. He was right.

    Cornell's representative, Brian Bumbery said he passed away Wednesday night while on tour in Detroit. He had just finished a concert with Soundgarden. Not that my feelings matter in this situation, but for some reason that makes me feel better about this horrible news. I think it's knowing that he had just played what most likely was a fantastic show, and was off to a night of rockstar partying. What better way to go out then doing what you absolutely love and have devoted your life to.

    Bumbery said his death was, "sudden and unexpected" and the family is working with the medical examiner to determine a cause of death.

    I know it's a lot to ask for.. But please, please, please media.. Don't drag this man's name through the dirt with guesses and accusations like you do everyone else. Just offer your condolences and wait for the facts.

    Rest in piece, Cornell. You will be very missed.

    Here is one of my favorite solo covers by Cornell, it's also one of favorites by anyone period.
