Whether you liked or disliked Sunday’s ACMs, there’s one thing we can all agree on. They have to start nominating females for Entertainer of the Year. Even Jason Aldean, who won the award, agrees.
Here’s what he said backstage, “For whatever reason, there were no female [nominees] this year. I definitely think there’s some worthy of being there, for sure.
“I think there’s some that should be represented in there and honestly, down the road, if they happen to win one, I’ll be the first one up congratulating them because I think it’s probably a little overdue.”
In other news: Jason visited “Ellen” yesterday and talked about going back to Vegas to visit fans who are still recovering. “It was tough to see people in the hospital, some in comas. One of the hardest things I probably ever had to do.
“But seeing the strength they had just being happy to be alive and make it through that, allowed me to look at it in a different light, and be like, ‘If these people can come back and have that sort of attitude, then I got nothing to be whining about.'”
(He talks about it being “tough to go back” at 1:20 in the video. He also performed “You Make It Easy”.)
