The mingling between Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood was mostly replaced with great performers in the second hours.
Among them were Taylor Swift, Sugarland, Keith Urban, Reba McEntire and Jason Aldean/Kelly Clarkson, Kid Rock and Brad Paisley.
Taylor Swift was accompanied herself with the piano and was backed up by a violin choir. According to many articles the song she sang today is dedicated to Taylor Lautner. Well, the girl is young and I think it is refreshing that she covers all her relationships on the entire CD. There is only bit sarcasm in there since I like her songs because it reminds me of me back in the day. LOL I hope that makes sense.
I prefer Jennifer Nettles with long hair. This dress/chair thingy was a bit funky. But what can I say?
Keith Urban didn’t need to blind us with his bright yellow shirt. We want to see the guy.
Reba received a standing ovation with her performance. My daughter immediately recognized her song as a song from Beyonce. Reba always keeps it interesting.
Jason Aldean and original Idol winner Kelly Clarkson matched wonderful. The tattoo on her wrist was a bit distracting. I wanted to know what it says. And what was going on with all the camera shots. Her back side was more seen then her front.
I don’t want to like him but I am fascinated by Kid Rock every time I see him. My husband says one of these days the guy has to change his name from Kid to something else. He isn’t getting any younger. I am predicting a new 4th of July song with that one. When I closed my eyes I almost could hear the fireworks going off to certain parts of the song. And if I am wrong then this will be a Harley Davidson song with motor noises in the background. I got to be right somehow.
Brad Paisley followed with a nice tribute to country music and I think h alsoe sang last year at the same event.
The awards went to Lady Antebellum as Vocal Group of the Year, Miranda Lambert for Album of the Year and Music Video of the Year and to Sugarland as Vocal Duo of the Year. She said revelation was caused by revolution.
Carrie changed in an flowing orange gown. The first outfit was still my favorite one.
