I sometimes think that singers up for the vocal award ought to have to do the same song -- level the playing field. And I think the charts should be something like Reverb Nation does where each artist gets an equity score that determines their slot on the charts. How else can an unknown, but talented songwriter like Lynn Ellen Wolf blast past a veteran like LeAnn Rimes on the global country chart? It's all about the active influence an artist has. These awards ought to be more fair. Like that.
