Darius, I know you have new music coming out you'll play for us. You didn't have anything out that qualified for the nominations. What do you think of these. I love it. I love going -- those award shows are so much fun. We all hang out and have a great time and I love seeing everybody and all the music. I love being a part of the whole country music world. I've enjoyed going to the awards and it's such a family atmosphere. That category, best female vocalist. Whoo! That's a tough one, you know, when you look at Miranda and Martina -- Kacey.
