I love music awards shows. The main reason that I watch them is not to see who takes home the trophies and prizes, but to see the performances. Last night’s Country Music Association Awards performances definitely did not disappoint. I was so excited with the duets this year too. I mean Rihanna and Jennifer Nettles, yes please! Country music is one of my favorite genres because I grew up on it, and I know many people like to think it’s depressing and sad music. Let’s be honest though, country music should really have a place in everyone’s heart. Most of the songs are so easy to relate to, and no matter where you’re from you have to have a little country or redneck in you.
But back to the performances. The winner of Entertainer of the Year, Taylor Swift did a beautiful job with her song “Ours.” Jennifer Nettles completely killed it with Rihanna singing “California King Bed,” and the hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood were incredible in “Remind Me.” Carrie Underwood has such amazing range and talent, and I love watching her sing. And I can’t forget my new favorites The Band Perry. Take a look at my favorites below.
