CMAs: A little bit country, a little bit rock and roll
Remember when Billy Ray Cyrus,not his daughter Miley, Hannah, whatever, was the face of country music?
Yeah, me too. Women went nuts over Billy Ray in the 90s. And everyone danced the most ridiculous dance ever created since the Electric Slide (Video: Achy Breaky Heart)
Now the worlds have collided. Miley is a worth a billion, Keith Urban and Brad Paisley do amazing Zeppelin riffs at their concerts, and Dolly Parton was on American Idol last year. Let me say that again. Dolly Parton was on American Idol last year. I have proof. Look here: (Video: Dolly Parton: American Idol 2008) Dolly was so bad I was hoping her enormous plastical-augmentations were filled with helium and she floated away.
But seriously folks. Taylor Swift has sold more albums than anyone in 2009 and was phenomenal this passed weekend on Saturday Night Live. Kenny Chesney had the year’s biggest concert tour. And Carrie Underwood will make more TV appearances in the next month than Santa Claus. So far no one does the CMA Red Carpet better than Underwood. But we'll see tonight. Hopefully, her dress won't cover the band.
Oh and, fingers crossed, no Kanye on board. Giddyup.
