CMT1Another fun-to-watch (for the most part) awards show is over for 2016.  They always do this one in June, when all of the artists are in town for CMA Fest.  That sure helps when the production people are putting their list of entertainers and presenters together for the show.  Loved seeing performances by LOCASH, Keith Urban, Thomas Rhett, Michael Ray, Cam,  Brett Eldredge – and most of the others.  However, I really didn’t need Pit Bull.  That’s a whole other genre’ and I just didn’t see a reason for him to be performing on this show.  That’s my opinion, of course. I would imagine the people who put the show together are hoping it will bring in some of the fans from other genre’ – maybe it will – but when Pit Bull gets done singing, will those other fans stay?

If you missed any of the show tonight, you really did miss a lot of great talent. And, if you missed any of the awards being given out, here are the winners of 2016 CMT Music Awards.
