Toby Keith skips the CMA Awards show
Toby Keith is not too happy with the CMA Awards officials. Which is why he decided to skip the award show altogether Wednesday night (Nov. 12).
In an interview with People magazine, Toby said “I know everybody is going to say it’s sour grapes, but I don’t care, it’s not. I haven’t been to a CMA Awards show in four years. They screwed me ’till I finally saw the light. You do your own math on that and figure out what you think about that show.”
Toby was referring to how the award show has snubbed him when it comes to receiving awards.
He has been nominated 27 times but he has only taken home two awards–in 2001 and 2005.
He also accused the show of playing politics when it comes to choosing the winners.
I agree with Toby on this one. His albums always go to number one, and he always outsells other country musicians when it comes to selling concert tickets. I think he deserves more awards than he gets from the CMA.
Toby usually winner a lot of awards at other shows, but the CMA officials tend to ignore him by shutting him out when it comes to winning.
Toby has never held his tongue. He’s known for being straight forward and always speaking his mind. Therefore, maybe he just rubbed someone the wrong way at the CMA.
While Toby is unhappy with the CMA, I’m sure his fellow Oklahoma native Carrie Underwood is excited with the CMA’s because she won the female vocalist of the year award during Wednesday’s telecast.
