CMA Awards - Carrie Underwood & Brad Paisley Host, Taylor Swift Wins Big - November 13, 2009
The CMA Awards were this past week and I watched a lot of it. The awards show was hosted by Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley. I thought they were fun and did some funny comedy bits including them spoofing songs. They did a Kanye West spoof with Carrie complimenting Brad’s video. Then, Brad goes into an acceptance type speech which was interrupted by Jimmy Dickens. Jimmy said how Taylor Swift had the best video of the year. Jimmy left the stage and Brad had a great line pondering how bad their security must be for a 4’9” 88 year old man to get by security. LOL. Great job to Carrie and Brad!! Congrats to Taylor Swift on winning so many big awards including Entertainer of the Year, Album Of The Year, and Female Vocalist. It’s hard to find any other artist that has had a bigger year than her. A top selling album and a sold out tour. Yeah, I’m thinking she earned every bit of that. Her reaction to it was priceless and it’s amazing at what she is accomplishing at the age of nineteen. Other big winners included Lady Antebellum for Vocal Group and also Single Of The Year for “I Run To You”. Brad Paisley won the award for Male Vocalist while Darius Rucker won for New Artist. The award for Vocal Duo went to Sugarland.
