CMA Awards Show Highlights — Taylor Swift’s Performance & Award
Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley joked about the shortcomings of the Obamacare website, singing about their ailments and the crashing web page! It was a funny nod to the news and current events — but with their talented vocals, it was actually a melodic tune!
Lady Antebellum gave a wonderful performance of their latest single, “Compass.” They really got the crowd excited about their passionate song — and really set the tone for a night of beautiful ballads and catchy tunes.
The show hosts dissed Miley Cyrus for her twerking performances, but then brought out the cast of Duck Dynasty to re-enact Robin Thicke‘s viral video for his song, “Blurred Lines.” Willie Robertson twerking was a true highlight of the night.
Taylor Swift was honored with the Pinnacle Award for her extensive musical career accomplishments, and she got really choked up about the celebs who supported her in a congratulatory video.
Brad Paisley later donned a Mona Lisa t-shirt and his signature white cowboy hat for a performance of his song … “Mona Lisa.”
