    I say person who wins this year country music award, single, song, female vocalist, TV actress, female singer and nominate best TV show comedy will definitely be Miley Cyrus. Listen I know she’d won all that but there’s lot she could win for not nominate animation voice she say and do a lot things but Miley is not idiot she’s light from the sun.
