There's a reason that this was the fourth year that Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley were chosen to host the Country Music Awards -- because they rock them. Looking amazing in an array of gorgeous gowns, Carrie was radiant, and Brad is just always smokin'. Plus, they were hilarious as they mocked everyone from Kim Kardashian to Hank Williams Jr.
They started with a little ditty about Hank's little NFL fiasco after he compared President Obama to Hitler. No matter if you agree with the NFL's decision to drop his song from Monday Night Football or not, you have to admit their lyrics were hilarious. To the tune of "Family Tradition," it went something like this:
Country music singers have always been a real close family. But lately one of our kinfolk made some people mad on national TV.
And people wanna know Hank, why do you drink (before an interview!)?
Why do you smoke (before an interview!)?
Football ain’t the same without that song that you wrote.
Stop and think it over, and let me help you get the picture.
You can get drunk and start carrying on, but you can’t compare the president to Hitler.
And then out came Hank Williams Jr., who then went into: Are you ready for an awards show? Are you ready to party?
They also played with the Tim McGraw and Faith Hill Barbie dolls, made them make out, and examined them for anatomical correctness. "There's nothing there. Poor Faith," Carrie quipped. But it was the song about Kim Kardashian's short-lived marriage to Kris Humphries that was the most hilarious.
To the tune of the Randy Travis song "Forever and Ever, Amen," they sang:
I’m going to love you forever. For 72 days, Amen.
As long as Justin Bieber is not a conceiver. As long as Taylor Swift is with her current boyfriend.
I’m gonna love you for $21 million. For a hit TV series. For pitching Us Weekly.
For 72 days, Aaaaa-men.
And that was just in the first 10 minutes or so. I can't wait to see what the rest of the show brings.
Do you think Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley did a good job hosting the CMA Awards this year? What were your favorite moments?
