Blogging The ACM Awards

As usual, CMT will be blogging and hosting an online chat during the TV show.

The Tennessean has figured out how to get us all to watch video commercials: have their music critic Peter Cooper opine colorfully on the real award that matters, who will be Taylor Swift's best friend, and the back story on how the ACM changed the criteria in order to permit Jamie Johnson's LP to be nominated album of the year and why he thinks it won't win.

As you'd expect the OKC' Oklahoman’s Brandy McDonnell is a big Reba fan, with inside access and a sneak preview of "Strange."

GAC-TV will be live on the orange carpet and also Tweeting during the show.

Karlie Justus is another regular blogger on everything country, worth a read, as is Neil Haislop.

WUSN, Chicago, KMPS, Seattle and WYCT, Pensacola, are among the hundreds of radio stations and personalities blogging the show, and many Westwood One affliates - like KFRG, Inland Empire - have backstage ACM video on their websites.

What are you doing?
