    @I n F a m o u s l y C o o l: Haha nice joke. I think Carrie can live with the fact most of her fans aren’t the Twilight freaks and that she can sing live and that a studio isn’t what makes her win awards. But yeah maybe you’re right she must be jealous considering she has had 11 singles that have all gone #1 and three albums that will more than likely all be multi-platinum. Keep dreaming.

    Looks older than her age.

    She looked annoyed last night when Taylor won, she had one of those fake smiles on, LOL, she was pissed.

    bandit, she looks her age. she is 26 and looks pretty, young and classy. and lady gaga and keys looked pissed too that taylor’s untalented hack butt beat actual artists who sing live well and record decent music.

    Why would Carrie be jealous of Taylor. Anyone who is not tone deaf knows who ‘s got one of the best voices in country music and in all genres of music today. And it’s not Taylor Swift. She is a studio creation that caters to teeny boppers around the world. She had a great year with her album sales and tour(again, being proppelled by audiance of 12-16 year olds). Unfortunately, this is who buys most CD’s today(teens). To be fair to Taylor, she is a great songwriter and a good peformer but to be compared to the talent and vocal ability of Carrie, Reba or Martina is dishonor to those 3 ladies. Carrie has released 11 songs from 3 albums and all 11 went to #1. Yeah, she has a lot to be jealous about. Do grow up

    concerned Says:

    watch the show last night and she has pure talent! she didn’t have to ***** herself out like all the other performers…what has happened that these woman grind and dance its too much gimmick and tasteless! Taylor swift is adorable ,but doesn’t sound good live at all… almost painful!

    TY Says:

    Jealous, bitchy Taylor fans come out when anything is written about Carrie-go figure. Carrie is prettier—is well respected—and Definately can way outsing Swift. When Swift has worn out her tween break up songs and tries to do adult songs—where will her fans be—getting older too–and outgrowing the break up songs. Taylor’s vocals can not withstand adult songs. 15 minutes up??????? Go on be jealous TS fans–we know who you are and why you are jealous. Doesn’t bother me in the least–cause I KNOW who is best as do a lot of other people. Her fans are just as boring as she is.

    Carrie is a beautiful person inside and out. She is classy and she treats people with respect. She is a real sweetheart. Ive met her several times. She sounds even better (flawless) live. She is loaded with talent. Whoever keeps saying her time is over? Um, she’s got 60 awards and is just getting started. Only 5 yrs so far and she is well respected by everyone in Nashville as a true country artist.

    Keep it up, Very Elegant.
