I thought it was nice to see a show that did completly avoid politics and tried to give us a normal experience.  The other awards shows were so obviously policitcal and trying to make a statement I appreciated what the CMAs did.


@mimom  I hear you. But they should have paid more attention to the cdc guidelines- especially since it was  an indoor venue. No masks? Woman Sad  They also made  awkward jokes about social distancing ..... I hope everyone is safe.

I'm surprised there aren't any posts- I'm not a country music fan but I am a fan of Darius Rucker so I watched a bit off/on. I really liked his tribute to Mac Davis -- 'In The Ghetto'. 

 

With the spike of covid cases - Nashville especially- they were 'whatever' about the pink elephant in the room. Jokes about social distancing.  The event was at an indoor venue, tables were supposedly 8 ft apart  (didn't appear so at all). The only masks were costume props a few performers held up for photo ops. They seemed to  want to avoid politics- but they made public health political and sent the wrong message. 

 

 


@ibb38 It's political to you.  To me it's not.  People get a lot of conflicting information, choose what to believe each person free to do so so lots of people have different feelings about COVID and all aspects of it.

 

If you follow a party line, you'll see it as political.  Some of us just see it as confusing, therefore many people take a different approach to dealing with it.

 

It's America, and that's how it works.  Whether it fits your views or not. 


@ibb38- It's not 'conflicting information'. There is science/medical based FACTS. Period.


@Onefineday Posts running into each other can get confusing. @Sooner 

stated 'conflicting information'!!

 

That's definitely not my thinking -- I agree with you wholeheartedly!


@ibb38 LOL!!!  Yes, there is conflicting information.  Science once thought that the earth was the center of the universe and somebody had a famous trial for disagreeing.

 

Night air also was thought to cause all sorts of disease and white makeup with lead was once popular. 

 

Do you REALLY think this is the be-all and end-all of fact?  I sure don't!  And any researcher worth their salt will tell you it isn't either.

"Science" can't know all, fix all, anticipate all, and some lie to get funds.  

 

Nothing about this is set in stone and not much is verified.  "Science" relies on the principle of observation and testing over WAY more than a year. 


@Sooner of course COVID is a global pandemic.Woman Indifferent

 

I agree that science  can't know all throughout a health crisis- but as more is learned trust science & respect the restrictions/guidelines put in place.

 

My point is other epidemics (such as ebola) were controlled from becoming global pandemics by doing just that.


@ibb38 , you cannot compare ebola to covid.  One of the big glaring differences is it has been around since 1976.  It's not novel like Covid-19.

I was really happy to see Charley Pride get that award.  He is more in my age group of country singers.  Loved the music.


That was nice, he was touched.  The duet with Jimmie Allen was nice too.

@LipstickDiva ebola is a controlled epidemic, that's the only comparison I was making.

@snoop And now Charley has passed away from covid. With the lack of masks and social distancing at the awards show - he no doubt got it at the event. This was so avoidable!! . Woman Frustrated
