Well good for Aldean. Maybe now his Daddy can quit whining on Facebook.
These awards are going to be on some channel on some night, hell…who cares at this point. I only like to watch them to live tweet mean things and watch Taylor Swift dancing in the audience. I literally can’t get enough of Tay-Tay dancing at award shows. It warms my heart. #thissickbeat
