Country Music Award 2010

Yesterday, I watched the 44th annual country music award. My favorite band, Lady Antebellum, won two awards;  single and vocal group. I like country music, some songs are so touching and it make me tear up sometime.

Here is Lady Antebellum’s best CMA single for this year “Need You Now.”

I also like “American Honey” for the same group.

My other favorite country music group is Sugarland who won for vocal duo. This is their latest song “Stuck Like Glue.”

Did I mention before that I LOVE Southern accent? Unfortunately, Southerners tend to normalize their accent when they move to other non-Southern states. It is a shame, I like their accent so much. Of course, it is even more beautiful when spoken by ladies. I think everyone should keep his/her accent. Accents are meant to be different because we are different. Only robots speak the same.

  1. Nice music, since you are a big fan of country music and you love the southern accent, Nashville, TN is where you should be..:)

    1. Unfortunately, Nashville is not by the coast. I don’t want to move from one inland to another. I don’t mind visiting Nashville though.

  2. Never much of a fan of country music, but I do appreciate hearing it from time to time. But I do agree with you about the Southern accent! In almost all variations, it is lovely to hear.

    1. Yes, it is lovely to hear. I found that people in general like accents. I used to apologize to my students about my accent and I used to tell them that I am learning how to normalize it to an American accent until couple of female students told me that they like my accent and I should not change it. It was flattering to hear that 🙂 But I am sure I say “people” and “pen” not “beoble” and “ben” now 🙂

      1. Jaraad, American women are definitely suckers for accents. How do you think I ended up all the way in Jordan? :-)))

        But still good that you lost the “beoble” and “ben.” I also hope that you no longer “bark” your car on campus. :-)))

        1. hahaha… Oh my, good to know 🙂
          Regarding barking car on cambus, I heard this joke once.
          During a big event in Washington DC, police officers were on streets monitoring traffic and directing vehicles where to park and move. A young Arab guy stopped near a police officer and said “Can I bark over there?” The officer replied of course, this is a free country you can bark anywhere. So the guy parked his car and later found a ticket when he returned 🙂 I was told this was a joke but I do believe it could have happened for real, may be on a university campus 🙂

  3. I like country 🙂
    U knw Jaraad,,, Lady Antebellum is my new obsession 🙂

    Can`t get enough 🙂

    “and I rather hurt then feel nothing at all” !! woow 😀



    1. Ya, aren’t they good? I like their songs.
      “and I rather hurt than feel nothing at all” I am not sure about that. I don’t know which one is more hurtful.

      1. sweet torture kinda` thingy :D, I like to delve into the lyrics 😉

        They ARE good, I told ya; my new obsession 🙂
        Before it was : tim macgraw, tresha yearwood, aaaaand shania twain 🙂


  4. Aw, I’m glad to know someone likes the Southern accent. My Syrian friend loves mine. Good thing since he’s stuck with me now. 😀

    1. I think it is rare to find someone from Jordan who is fan of country music. After 8 years you should kind of adapt to the new life 🙂

  5. I love country music but I’m not familiar with bands or singer names :$ I only love the songs 🙂

    Lady Antebellum’s song is lovely I like it very much 🙂

    Happy Eid to u Jaraad inshallah next Eid to be with the family in Jordan

    1. You may actually know some singers but you don’t know that they sing country music as well. Some of the well known singers started as Country Music singers and then switched to other genres like pop because it has more audience. Like Shania Twain, Sheryl Crow, and many others.
      Eid Mubarak to you as well.
