Music wise this is my all time favorite awards. Mostly because I’m a country girl through and through. Plus any excuse I have to look at Luke Bryan and Tim McGraw is wonderful.
Time for the fashion. I just love this part.
Two of the most influential women in country business – Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert (she’s up for 6 awards tonight!) They both are just gorgeous and although exact opposite dresses I love them both! I would die for Carrie Underwoods legs. Fun fact: they’re actually insured. HIT.
Luke Bryan. He just does it for me. His wife is one lucky woman. HIT.
Kellie Pickler is such a cute woman. I think the color fits her perfect and it’s very summery! HIT.
Dierks Bentley- what the hell. I know your new song Drunk on a Plane is absolutely great and what not but this is seriously how you want to show up to an awards show? MISS.
Ok I can’t believe I’m even saying this because he shouldn’t be singing or doing anything country but Jason Derulo what is with your pants?! Couldn’t you try and dress somewhat nice? Really you don’t belong here. MISS.
They may be a power couple but they do not dress like one. MISS for both of them. And it will always make me laugh how much shorter he is than her. Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, folks. It just isn’t working for me.
Kirsten Bell- you’re hosting for the 3rd year and I love sparkles so I’m giving this a HIT. The middle part on her just throws me off a bit. But the dress fits her like a glove. HIT.
I can’t decide if this dress works for her or not but I LOVE Cassadee Pope. She wins for breakthrough video of the year! HIT/MISS.
One of the newbies to country music fresh off The Voice is Rae Lynn. Sorry hun, you look too princess prom-ish for me. Tinkerbell called, she wants her tutu back. P.s. Tinkerbell wore it better. MISS.
Oohh Alex Dupree eerrm I mean Jana Kramer how I envy you. Goodness I miss One Tree Hill. But dang girl this color is spot on and you’re just fabulous! HIT.
Be still my beating heart! Is that a SMILE I see on Jason Aldean?! Seriously I sat through his concert and I’m pretty sure he didn’t smile once. Even while telling a joke. That aside I’m just still disappointed about his affair with this woman that broke up his 12 year marriage and now they’re at an awards show together?! You got balls dude. And you obviously used them to cheat. Just for that I say MISS.
Winner for breakthrough video of the year was my girl Cassaddee Pope for “Wasting all these Tears“. Blake was like a proud papa! I seriously love this lady and that video.
Blake Shelton then went on to win for Male video of the year for “Doin’ What She Likes” SUCH A CUTE SONG.
His wife Miranda Lambert won for female video of the year for “Automatic” which is such a powerful song. Makes you think alot about how much times have changed. Her and Blake are seriously my favorite country couple.
Collaborative video of the year went to Florida Georgia Line and Luke Bryan for “This is how we Roll” honestly this was no surprise to me. These guys make hits.
Florida Georgia Line also took home duo of the year. Again, no surprise. They’re superstars.
Group video of the year went to The Band Perry for “Done”. This was the only surprise for me. There were ALOT of good videos in this category and I didn’t expect this one to win.
Carrie Underwood took home the top prize of the night for “See you Again” winning video of the year. I love Carrie she’s such a powerhouse and this song hit all of my emotions.
I just want to say Miranda and Carrie work together. Damn they are powerhouses. I loved their performance together and damn they both looked amazing!!!
Oh what a wonderful night of country music.
What did you think of the outfits?!
Anyone surprised by the wins/loses?
