The over the top hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley sure know how to start off the 47th annual CMA’s. There wasn’t a person watching that wasn’t hysterically laughing at their jokes. Brad twerked his back all night long, sex-texted Keith Urban and in the midst of it all Brad and Carrie reenacted a country version of Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke’s foam finger VMA performance.
There was no shame when it came to Brad Paisley calling out the rest of his country fellow artist. It all began with the hosts singing to the melody, “Why can’t we be friends, Luke Bryan and Zach Brown, why can’t we be friends” If you don’t not recall Zach Brown had dished on Luke Bryan’s songs quote, “I love Luke Bryan and he’s had some great songs, but this new song is the worst song I’ve ever heard,” The country boys shared a hug and a laugh… all in good humor!
Performances were at it’s all time best this year! Up and coming artist, Kacey Musgraves, won new artist of the year! I think we should all keep an eye out for her; I wouldn’t be surprised if she won more than one award next year!
OTHER performances included:
The duo George Strait and Alan Jackson performed in tribute to George Jones, Carrie Underwood sang her most notable songs, the Zach Brown Band rocked out with the Foo Fighters and Miranda Lambert performed “we were us” along side Keith Urban for the first time! Other surprise appearances were Lucy Hale (who happens to be recording a country album!), Diddy (he keeps his love for country music on the DL) and some of the Duck Dynasty clan!
Taylor Swift was awarded the Pinnacle… what is the Pinnacle you might ask yourself? It is an award given when an artist’s music has dominated worldwide! The only other singer that has ever been awarded the Pinnacle has been Garth Brooks! Talk about a major award!
HOWEVER … Abc wasn’t able to fit the entire ceremony giving us viewers a five second recap of what had occurred while we watched commercials. A unsure Carrie Underwood even made a comment not knowing if her performance would make broadcast… Program evaluations (Nielson Sweeps) occur this month, if we the viewers make time to watch the Abc show and improve their ratings on a Wednesday night, we would hope to see the entire show… just saying.
