Carrie Underwood takes video of year at CMT Awards
Question of the Day
“This is Hillary’s maternity present coming early,” Charles Kelley said.
Miss Lambert’s husband, Blake Shelton, won male video of the year for “Sure Be Cool If You Did” — an award presented by Miss Lambert. Mr. Shelton was traveling because of his duties as a coach on TV’s “The Voice,” so Miss Lambert accepted, shouting, “Honey, I’m drinking for two tonight.”
The CMT Awards are rarely focused on winners of the belt buckle trophy, and Wednesday night was no different.
Miss Underwood had the most poignant moment of the night with “See You Again,” her tribute to tornado victims in her home state. Taylor Swift had the night’s most eye-catching performance, singing “Red” with a color guard of flag bearers while playing electric guitar and wearing a red-and-black shorts-and-overcoat ensemble that had a Sgt. Pepper feel to it.
Nicole Kidman with husband Keith Urban joined in as Darius Rucker and Lady Antebellum led the crowd at Bridgestone Arena in a “Wagon Wheel” singalong. Hunter Hayes took it outside and walked through a crowd of hundreds before taking the stage, and Mr. Bryan performed across the street at the Lower Broadway venue The Stage.
And Little Big Town sang Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” as fog enveloped the stage and Mr. Urban joined them for an extended guitar solo.
