So, as some of you may know by now, the Country Music Awards were held last night. They are by far the biggest awards given out in country music and everyone is who has even the slightest connection to country music is usually there. It has always been like that. If you are not there, then it must be because you are in a hospital or that is really the only reason. So, when I was flipping through all the photos from last night I noticed one very huge omission. Where was Jessica Simpson?
Isn't this the woman who was kick starting her career by releasing a country album? Hasn't she made a huge deal about wanting to be accepted into the country music world? I'm not sure how she intends to accomplish this while sitting in New York or LA and telling the world she is country when she is out on the road. Country fans expect their singers to show up at the CMA's. They don't take excuses. The word is that Jessica only has time for the people in country music when she needs them for something, and other wise she wants nothing to do with them. Apparently this is rubbing off on her fans as well. She has not even come close to selling out a show in a very long time, and she is performing more and more pop songs during her set because that is what the people want to hear when they see her. Well, I guess she could always go back to being an actress. She is an international box office sensation after all. Yes, and her new publicity material even mentions her #1 film although it doesn't say what country it was #1 in.
