Garth Brooks' Friends in Low Places, Taylor Swift's Love Story, Live Like You Were Dying by Tim McGraw and Dolly Parton's I Will Always Love You also made the list.

The Mama's Broken Heart singer is up for six trophies at this year's event - two as a solo act, two for her We Were Us duet with Keith Urban and two with her band the Pistol Annies.
Florida Georgia Line and Luke Bryan have landed five nods each, while Urban and Taylor Swift have four each to take to the CMT Music Awards on 4 June at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena in Tennessee.
The night's big prize for Video of the Year will be a battle between Blake Shelton and Pistol Annies (Boys 'Round Here), Carrie Underwood (See You Again), Eric Church (Give Me Back My Hometown), Florida Georgia Line and Luke Bryan (This Is How We Roll), Hunter Hayes (I Want Crazy), Kacey Musgraves (Follow Your Arrow), Keith Urban with Miranda Lambert (We Were Us), Luke Bryan (That's My Kind of Night), Miranda Lambert (Automatic), Taylor Swift (Red), Thomas Rhett (It Goes Like This) and Tim McGraw with Taylor Swift and Keith Urban (Highway Don't Care).

Former Beatles bandmates Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr have been added to the star-packed line-up for the Grammy Awards at the end of January (14). Grammy bosses have confirmed the two legends will perform at the ceremony, but have stopped short of commenting on rumours suggesting the two old pals will reunite onstage for a song on music's big night.
Officials are merely stating, "Each will perform".
But McCartney and Starr, who will make his performance debut at the Grammys, will hit the stage together to collect the 2014 Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award for their work with the Fab Four.
Meanwhile, 2014 MusiCares Person of the Year honouree Carole King and Sara Bareilles will team up for a performance, and nominees Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, John Legend, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Kacey Musgraves have confirmed spots.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, who will also be making their debut at the Grammys, have seven nominations, including Album Of The Year and Best Rap Album for The Heist, and Song Of The Year for Same Love.
Kacey Musgraves and seven-time Grammy winner Taylor Swift are up for four awards each.
Previously announced performers include Daft Punk with Nile Rodgers, Pharrell Williams and Stevie Wonder; Kendrick Lamar; Lorde; Metallica and Lang Lang, Katy Perry and Robin Thicke and Chicago.
There will also be a "special performance" featuring country legends Merle Haggard, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson and nominee Blake Shelton.
The 56th annual Grammy Awards will take place on 26 January (14).
Sean 'Diddy' Combs' boyband proteges Day26 are reuniting for a tour, just a year after formally parting ways. The five members were handpicked by the rap mogul in 2007 for his MTV reality show Making the Band 4, but drama ensued as Qwanell 'Que' Mosley was booted out of the group in 2009.
The remaining R&B singers disbanded in the summer of 2012, but now Mosley is back on good terms with Willie Taylor, Robert Currey, Michael McCluney and Brian Andrews, and they are preparing to relaunch their careers with a 30-city trek, titled After The Band 4 Tour, in 2014.
Combs is not involved in the reunion, but he has already given his blessing to the band, according to TMZ.com.
The pre-votes are in, and we finally have the nominee list for the 2014 People's Choice Awards thanks to the People's Choice blog. And man, oh, man is it a hefty list.
With a total of 58 categories, the awards show covers music, movies, and television with categories from "Favorite Action Movie Star" to "Favorite TV Anti-Hero" to "Favorite TV Bromance." This year's top contenders are Glee (with 8 nods), Katy Perry (5 nods), and Sandra Bullock (5 nods). And don't worry about Bullock's Gravity co-star George Clooney feeling left out — the two of them snagged a nod for "Favorite Duo." (You already know what we think about their magical pairing.)
We've got the entire list of nominees for you... have fun scrolling!

We're impressed you read the whole list.
The 40th annual show will be hosted by 2 Broke Girls stars Beth Behrs and Kat Dennings on CBS on Jan. 8 at 9 PM. Final voting ends on Dec. 5.
Overall this episode was much more focused than last week's and way more enjoyable to watch. Reminds me of the old episodes, hence, I don't have that much to poke fun of.
Nailed Down the Number of Reindeer
The episode starts off with a meeting about operation Genoa, of course. My favorite highlights of the meeting:
1) The reindeer counting. Sloan you are too much.
2) The extended reindeer metaphor. All of them took this too far, but funny nonetheless.
3)Don's pensive face and moment of silence said everything. You could tell he was rethinking every life decision that lead him to that point. Priceless.
Mackenzie and Charlie have a meeting with a retired general in Maryland to discuss the use of sarin gas on civilians. They arrive in style by running over the man's garbage disposal cans. Mac attributes it to sheer "regular negligence," haha. My guess is she's not used to driving on the left side of the road. This guy is also a total basket case.
I Loathe You In Ways That Are Unquantifiable
This dinner is the worst double date and in this case a 5th wheel in history. Poor Jim can't get a break! Taylor crashes his reunion dinner with his new beau, and gets absolutely grilled. He apparently just can't live down the Sex in the City tour bus fiasco. Points for Aubrey though, she's freaking hilarious. I'm sure Neel can't believe he wasted his night on this nonsense. Especially, because Taylor is such a buzz kill and breaks the news that she just got fired. Probably because Mitt has binders of other women to choose from.
On top of this whole ordeal, when Jim is finally a lone with Hallie she gets a call that she has to be on a plane in 90 minutes. I love Hallie (she looks exactly like Natasha McElhone from HBO's Californication), but I'm not sure yet if I love her and Jim as a couple. I'm still rooting for him and Maggie to get their act together, which at this rate looks bleak.
Speaking of Maggie, she's already on a first name basis with her bartender. That's a surefire sign that you drink alone way too often, he also knows her drink. She then proceeds to go home with her bartender after talking to Jim in front of said bartender. Sad, sad, story.
Don't Chicken out McAvoy
Will can't aim for his life and makes a complete fool of himself on a morning talk show by trying to make himself more likable. After that faux pa, he fires his girlfriend Nina Howard. Just when we thought he was fostering healthy relationships again! Was that actually a break up though? It was so fast I'm not sure if it even constituted as a greeting.
Sloan is all of a sudden an expert on psychology after literally reading one page. She psycho analyzes will anyway, too funny.
Finally, operation Genoa comes together. Jerry slams the iron fist with quite the thought provoking speech concerning war crimes in our country. The general confirms in the interview that sarin gas was used in operation Genoa. It now makes sense why the News Night team thinks they have a story, since that was the missing piece they needed to go through with the story. It's inferred from here that this is when they decide to go for it.
Rebecca, the lawyer, looks like she wants to torch all of them for making her life so difficult.

We were back in deposition mode this week, as we finally found out what happened to Maggie in Africa that left her emotionally traumatized and with a horrible haircut. Meanwhile, Jim dealt with the consequences of leaving the campaign bus and Shelly got in the way of the news team perusing a major lead on Genoa.
Nothing But Trouble
Maggie tells lawyer Rebecca Halliday the full story of her trip to Africa. Rebecca seems entirely unsympathetic, going on about $14 million apartments and how she hates the Dutch. She also hopes to use Maggie’s fragile mental state to help AWM’s case, despite Maggie denying being “messed up.” Six months after the Africa incident, Maggie and Jerry went to interview a general who is somehow connected to Genoa. Maggie says that the general never stated that Genoa actually happened, while Jerry claims that Maggie was in no position to say that. Given that Maggie’s not rocking back and forth on the floor in the fetal position, I’d say that Jerry is just trying to cover his own ass for getting everyone into this mess.
S o the big question is: what happened in Africa? Before she and Gary could go to Kampala, they had to get footage of soldiers building an addition onto an orphanage. While visiting the orphanage, Maggie sees a child named Daniel sitting by himself, clutching a book. She starts reading the book to him, and Daniel quickly becomes attached, asking her to read it over and over again. It’s cute, but also sad because you know that something bad is obviously going to happen to this kid.
Maggie and Gary have to stay at the orphanage overnight because they can’t drive on the roads in the dark. In the middle of the night, they are woken up by gunshots and men yelling in Lugisu, which no one understands. (Maggie later figures out that they were yelling “Give us the camera.”) They wake up the children and load them onto a school bus, but Daniel is missing. Maggie finds him under her bed but can’t reach him. Gary helps her unbolt the bed from the floor and forcibly drag Daniel out. Maggie carries Daniel on her back to the bus but turns around when Gary falls, and Daniel is shot in the back. He dies immediately, leaving Maggie distraught and wracked with guilt. Maggie and Gary have to go back to the US right away, and Maggie chops her hair off because Daniel had admired it.
Jim Finally Moves On
Jim’s speech may have convinced Hallie and Stillman to leave the bus with him, but now they have to face the fallout. They no longer get hotel reservations or email updates, and they have to follow the bus in a rental car. Jim asks Romney spokeswoman Taylor for a statement from the candidate that everyone else got by email, but she refuses. They get into an argument which leads to Taylor finally cracking and telling Jim to “Go f**k yourself.” Jim smiles, knowing he caught her in a compromising position, and she asks him what she can do to make him forget what she said. Me thinks 30 minutes with the candidate will do the trick.
But Jim actually gives away his precious interview time to Hallie, whose pig of a boss was giving her a hard time for leaving the bus. When Hallie finds out about this favor, she gets pissed off, but quickly gets over it and makes out with Jim by the hotel pool. She also proudly whispers “I’m the rebound, and I went to Vassar,” which is one of the more absurd things a woman has said on this show, and that’s saying something. Anyway, Mac makes Jim come back to New York after giving up the interview, so his campaign romance is short-lived.
Crisis of Confidence
Back at the newsroom, Jerry and the rest of the crew have to deal with someone who isn’t as obsessed with the news as they are. Plot device Shelly Wexler has an Occupy Wall Street buddy who might have information about Genoa, but won’t bring Jerry to meet him because Will embarrassed her on-air. Sure, Shelly is being difficult and stubborn as hell, but if I had to deal with the News Night team’s overinflated egos, I would probably act the same way. One by one, Neal, Sloan, and Don try to make it up to her, but they let their trademark smugness get in the way. Finally, Will goes to meet Shelly and apologizes to her, saying that he just wanted to bash Occupy Wall Street to make him look more like a moderate. He did this despite the fact that they already found who they were looking for: a guy who wrote a report stating that American troops used chemical weapons on civilians in Pakistan. The report seems to match up with what they already know about Genoa, further convincing Mac and Charlie that the story might be credible. Obviously they are missing a major piece of the puzzle that would prove the story false, but they won't find it until it's too late.

Rocker John Mayer has dodged questions about the inspiration for his new song Paper Doll amid reports it is about ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift. The Daughters hitmaker thrilled fans when he took over New York's Rockefeller Plaza for a concert on U.S. breakfast show Today on Friday (05Jul13), but he shuffled awkwardly when he was put on the spot by co-host Willie Geist, who quizzed him about the girl he was singing about.
Mayer refused to confirm or deny rumours his ex was his muse for the song, and instead brushed off the speculation, insisting all tunes could be interpreted in many different ways.
Mayer said, "Songwriters write songs because of people, about people... Anything someone else wrote is their reception of the song. I don't get involved; it's none of my business."
Gossip bloggers are convinced Paper Doll is Mayer's answer to Swift's track Dear John, on which she appears to take aim the rocker, singing, "I'll look back and regret how I ignored when they said run as fast as you can."
On Paper Doll, Mayer seems to hit back at the blonde beauty, who released her single 22 earlier this year (13), crooning, "You're like 22 girls in one/And none of them know what they're running from/Was it just too far to fall for a little paper doll?"

"This project started as a gift for my mom’s 86th birthday. Like most things in my family, it was initiated by my sister Georganne, who asked me if I could update mom’s album. So I went big (I’m known in the family for doing that)," Cher says. "My sister and I are proud of our mom and we want to share her with the world." [Via Press Release]

The two completed the trip together. [Deadline]
