Miranda Lambert giggled, Blake Shelton grinned, and the most famous newlyweds in Nashville said they can’t believe they won Female and Male Vocalist of the Year awards from the CMA for the second consecutive year.
The two hosts of the 2011 CMA Awards (and two of country music’s biggest stars), Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, took to the stage at the Bridgestone Arena during Wednesday night’s show for a performance of their No. 1 hit duet, ‘Remind Me.’
When Brad Paisley stepped out to announce Lady Antebellum‘s performance at the 2011 CMA Awards, he stepped out onto an empty stage. Looking around with mock bewilderment for his co-host, Paisley was met instead by a bedazzled Miss Piggy. The muppet worked her wiles only long enough for Carrie Underwood to emerge from backstage in an equally sparkling gown and accuse Miss P of locking her in her dressing room.
The Vocal Group of the Year category was arguably the most loaded of all 2011 CMA Awards categories, and Lady Antebellum said as much as they accepted the honor during Wednesday night’s broadcast. It’s the second straight year the trio has taken home the award.
Taylor Swift watched as her name went unread during the first four categories she was nominated for at the 2011 CMA Awards. When Reba McEntire announced the Entertainer of the Year Award winner, it seemed like the world had been lifted from the 21-year-old’s shoulders.
Jason Aldean gave the audience at the 2011 CMA Awards a taste of life in small-town America when he performed his single ‘Tattoos on This Town.’ Although he likely was full of anticipation as a top contender for several of the evening’s awards, he seemed fully into the performance of the song about teenage antics, including drag racing pickup trucks and Mustangs up and down dirt roads and otherwise leaving ‘Tattoos on This Town.’
With the CMA Awards just hours away, artists are spending the day primping and prepping to look and sound their best for tonight’s show. Trace Adkins tells Taste of Country that he doesn’t want any part of that, revealing that he’ll be skipping the awards show this year.
