The CMAs is dubbed one of country music’s biggest night, and last night proved this to be true.
Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley are two of the best hosts the CMAs have had. Their quick wit, jokes, and songs poke fun of artist in the business and also problems that we are facing today.
All eyes were on Carrie Underwood and her baby bump. Throughout the night the baby bump didn’t stop her from wardrobe changes. Underwood changed about 12 times and looked flawless even with a baby on the way.
The biggest reveal of the night involved the reveal of gender of Underwood’s baby. Paisley mentioned that the baby was a boy during one of their funny skits.
Kenny Chesney started the show this year with his new single, “American Kids.” The performance rocked the house and was a great way to start the award show off.
The CMAs are also known for their special guests who sing with the country music super stars. The first mix of genres was Miranda Lambert and Meghan Trainor. The new fused duo sang Meghan Trainor’s hit “All About That Bass”. The two were a perfect pair.
The night continued with great performances of artists and special guests presenting awards. It was no surprise that it was a huge award night for the Shelton/Lambert family. Lambert won a total of four awards including: Female Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year, Single of the Year and Musical Event of the Year. Blake Shelton took Male Vocalist of the Year.
Every year, there is an artist special award. This year the Irving Waugh award was awarded to Vin Gill. Gill is only the second artist to receive this award. The only other artist to receive this was Johnny Cash.
Ending the night, Garth Brooks made his first appearance on the CMA stage since 2005. Garth was invited to present an award that is familiar to him which was Entertainer of the Year. The lucky and talented Luke Bryan won.
