The 16th annual Inspirational Country Music Awards will be held Thursday, October 14, 2010, at 7:00 p.m. CST at the Trinity Music City USA Auditorium located in Hendersonville, Tenn. One of the hosts for the show this year will be Megan Alexander, a correspondent for the national television show, Inside Edition.
I’m really not familiar with these awards. I don’t believe it is televised, and I guess it just got away from me somehow. But had I been paying attention, I would have known that some of the artists who won these awards previously include Collin Raye, Ricky Skaggs, Craig Morgan, Charlie Daniels, Andy Griggs, Lonestar, Randy Houser, Jamie O’Neil, Josh Turner, Lee Greenwood, Emerson Drive, Linda Davis, and many others.
They have a lot of nominees in each of the categories. And here are a few of them.

I definitely see a lot of my favorites in those long lists of nominees. It would be really difficult for me to pick just one winner out of each category. I’d like to see that awards program televised. Maybe one of the networks will pick it up.
I have to run. I’m off to another very busy day. I have e-mail to answer, too. So I’ll do my best to get to that later tonight. Hope you all have a great day!
