ACM Awards

The ACM Awards, held in fabulous Vegas, kicked off my Sunday evening with a Bang. Hosted by the wonderful Reba McIntire, the show started out with Brooks n Dunn singing one of the older songs "Play Something Country" (very fitting for the evening). During their song, they would take a pause and introduce another singer (Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Sugarland, and Rascal Flatts) and they would sing a verse of one of their songs, and flashed back to Brooks N Dunn. This was kinda cool, but how many times did they repeat the verse "I'm a George Straight Junkie"? About 4, maybe 5? Finally that was over and here comes the good part. Mr. Kenny Chesney! He makes a no sleeve shirt and jeans look fantastic! However, I know it's not a crime these days, but I disagreed with the black hat and brown boots!!
Other Great performances were Heidi Newfeld, I loved the "Ring of Fire" they had around her when she sang " Johnny & June". George Straight is always a classic entertainer and I might add that Jamie Fox's introduction was hysterical. I loved the dress and performance by Carrie Underwood Singing "I told you so". Another great performance was from Jamey Johnson. The lighting effects were amazing on his song "In Color".
I was not impressed with David Copperfield and his introduction of Taylor Swift, nor was I impressed with the performance by Taylor Swift. I also did not like Leeann Womack, I'm not sure how she was able to stand in those shoes. Miley Cyrus and Sugarland tie for my vote for "Worst Performance of the Night!"
Miley's outfit was just horrible in my opinion, her performance was to dramatic. Sugarland, where do I start. She had an ugly outfit and he had an ugly hat! Not to mention the way she stared into the camera and all the faces she made. Does she think that is attractive? After that performance, I am questioning why I liked them in the first place...
My "Best Performance of the Night" goes to... Trace Adkins! Trace had an injured Marine introduce him last night. I was blown away by his performance. This was a totally different gentleman last night then what I seen in concert last month. The song brought tears to my eyes and sent chills up my spine. Way to go Trace! Trace also is my pick for Best Dressed Male and Best Acceptance Speech of the night for his award "Single Record of the Year - You're gonna miss this".

Other Performances of the night included:
  • Toby Keith - I am a big fan of Toby, and I love his song "God Love Her", but he seemed to be very shaky and his face seemed bloated... or was it just my TV that portrayed that image?
  • Lady Antebellum
  • Keith Urban
  • John Rich
  • Miranda Lambert
  • Rascal Flatts
  • Montgomery Gentry
  • Reba McIntire

A few other of My Fashion Woohoo's and Boos.
Let's start with the Boos.
Kelly Cuoco from the Big Bang Theory
Nicole Kidman - Couldn't you pick something else to show your body off? This is just horrible!
Carrie Underwood - It looks like a nightgown?

And now the Woohoo's!
Keith Urban - please try not to look at Nicole, it takes away from Keith's hotness.
Julianne Hough - Elegant
Carrie Underwood - This is such a chic and elegant gown. I love it!
Rascal Flatts - I love the coordinating of neutrals.
Reba McIntire - she had two dresses that looked Amazing on her.
This is my favorite dress of the evening!!
And the Winner is:
  • Song of the Year: Jamey Hohnson - In Color
  • Top Vocal Group - Rascal Flatts - no shocker there!
  • Top New Group - Zac Brown Band
  • Top New Male - Jake Owen
  • Top New Female - Julianne Hough

  • Single Record of the Year - Trace Adkins - You're gonna miss this
  • Album of the Year - Taylor Swift
  • Entertainer of the Year - Carrie Underwood - Even though I felt Kenny Chesney deserved this for the 5th year in a row, Carrie's reaction was priceless!

Honestly? I'm getting so tired of country music... *sigh*. I don't like Taylor Swift... Miley Cyrus looked like she was high on something... Sugarland, well, you know how I feel about them... Kenny Chesney, you know how I feel about him... Brooks & Dunn look and sound rough... Carrie Underwood sings very well and I really liked the song she performed last night, but she knows she's good and beautiful and she's arrogant about it... that bothers me. Jake Owen has been around for like 5 years... how could he be a best new male artist? Just curious... Jamey Johnson or whatever his name is looks like a member of Metallica and creeps me out...

But, Brad Paisley was cute staying at home so he didn't miss the birth of his son. Keith Urban was gorgeous, George Strait is George and he should've won something, damnit. I really like Rascal Flatts but come on. Nothing they've put out in the last year has been that great, has it?

I dunno. The whole face of country music has changed and I don't like it. I did like Reba's green dress though! I want it :)
