Little Big Town — Tornado (produced by Jay Joyce)
Every single artist had a great album, most likely every person has a different opinion on which is the best one. but i don't think taylor didn't win bc the album wasn't country enough, but just bc Blakes album IS really good.
Single of the Year“Cruise” — Florida Georgia Line (produced by Joey Moi)
“Highway Don’t Care” — Tim McGraw with Taylor Swift and Keith Urban (produced by Byron Gallimore and Tim McGraw)

“Merry Go ’Round” — Kacey Musgraves (produced by Luke Laird, Shane McAnally and Kacey Musgraves)
“Wagon Wheel” — Darius Rucker (produced by Frank Rogers)
Florida Georgia Line definitly deserved this one!
Female Vocalist of the YearMiranda Lambert
Taylor is an artist not a vocalist. I never got how she won that award during her fearless era.
Entertainer of the YearGeorge Strait
George with his big tour, this year he definitly deserved it.
I don't see how she was nominated just so her fans would tune in. we shouldn't forget a lot of her fans tune also in for people like Carrie ,miranda, luke, tim, brad or so many others. And for categories like song and single of the year, the awards always go to singles that were released and did well on the charts. and to nominate WANEGBT or 22 in that category would've been one of the biggest jokes of the year. and they didn't nomiate Begin again, so frrom what you said before, they would've had to nominate it to get her audience. so i wouldn't generalize your assumption that she doesn't get the awards bc they just want her audience. You should also consider other artist just having better songs or albums or just years.
And she got way too many awards when she was hyped up after fearless. it's just came down to the 'normal' level. not one person gets every single award. well except for the AMAs.
