CMA Awards CMA Nyheter

Countrymusikkens Oscar 2011

I natt var det CMA Awards show i Nashville. Countrystjernene kom på rad og rekke på «The Red Carpet» i god tid før selve showet startet. Selve showet åpnet med Blake Shelton’s versjon av «Footloose». Shelton fikk hjelp av rundt 150 dyktige dansere, og selveste Kenny Loggins som jo co-skrev sangen og spilte den inn for originalen fra 1984.

Nok en gang er det Brad Paisley og Carrie Underwood som er programledere, og dette fikser de med glans! Herlig åpning av dem der de gyver løs på Hank Williams’ klassikeren – Family Traditions. 

So don’t ask me, Hank why do you drink? Hank, why do you roll smoke?
Why must you live out the songs that you wrote?

Etter noen strofer kommer Hank Williams Jr. ut på scenen…

Paisley og Underwood fortsetter med sine morsomheter. Nå går det ut over ekteparet Faith Hill og Tim McGaw…
