The CMA Awards are coming up fast, and the nominees are making their pitches for CMA member votes. I happen to be a member and am eligible to vote for the awards, so that means I'm on the receiving end of some pretty cool things.

What I received today from Blake Shelton's camp is probably the most creative and cool toy I've seen. Basically, you download a QR code reader app and scan the bar code on the fabricated record player, and your phone becomes the old-fashioned needle for the album. Then you're able to slide the needle via your phone to the various cuts on the album.

Silly? Yes. Cool? YES!! Take a look as Angela our web girl and I give you a demonstration of this neat toy!
