BACK DOOR BOY IN A FRONT DOOR WORLD
OUTSIDE OF SOCIETY - THAT'S WHERE I WANT TO BE
Getting Very Nervous/Excited/Weepy 
15th-Nov-2005 07:22 pm
In less than an hour, three friends of mine whom I love dearly nd who have worked SO hard for their success will be on the 39th Annual Country Music Awards. They're nominated for the Horizon Award, Vocal Group of the Year, and Single of the Year for Baby Girl.

To see my friends' faces when their nomiations are announced live on TV is going to be another milestone. I'm already preparing myself for an onslaught of tears just from this alone, and I will lose my fucking mind if they win even one. They certainly deserve it! As of 5/24/05, Baby Girl spent its 46th week on the Billboard Top Country Singles chart this week, making it the longest running single in the history of the monitored chart era.

Little bit freaked out right now, but VERY excited!

Jude, I'll be rooting them on!

I grew up with country music. My step dad and my brother had a band and backed many very big named singers back in the late 60s and 70s including Tammy Wynette, Waylon Jennings, Roy Clark, and many others. It was a different style of country back then though.

Best of luck to your friends!
Hugs, Christina

Best of luck to them, and my sister's sister in law (sara evans) who is up for best female vocalist

Good luck to her as well! Hope she wins. It's always fun to see family and friends doing well and succeeding!

You sitting in front of a TV perched forward in excitement on the edge of tears is just too cute of an image.

The first time I saw "Sugarland" in any form was when Jen and Emily Saliers performed "Baby Girl" at Atlanta Pride 2003, because you introduced me in 2001.

I might cry too. My dopamine levels are low for giving up amphetamines.

I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for them too... that song has quickly become one of my all time favorite songs. :-)

Really.

Tears are overflowing...and I can't help thinking, "There's our girl"...like our baby has grown up.

Flawless.

And I'll be surprised if they don't win the Horizon Award.

They were amazing. They should have one at least one award.

Dierks Bentley sucks dog balls and gives five cents change.

That Horizon Award belongs to Sugarland.

Sugarland are such an inspiration.

To keep on dreaming and making things.

of course, i meant "They should have won at least 1 award". it is late at night and i have to say, thanks Jude, for introducing me to Sugarland's awesome music.

And for delivering that note to Ms. Hall.

I'm also irate they didnt win the Horizon award. Though have you seen the video with Dierks rolling around in the ocean. Yum! Or was that Billy Currington? They look the same to me.

Anyway, I posted pics on the sugarland community that I found on Getty. She looks so hot in that white dress though I have to say I do miss her curves. Oh well.
