The CMT Awards are the country version of the Video Music Awards. So, it happened two days ago, right in the beautiful Nashville. The show started with a beautiful tribute to the late Gregg Allman, who sadly passed this year, on May 27, due to complications with liver cancer. Jason Aldean, Darius Rucker and Charles Kelley from Lady Antebellum performed a version of the song “Silver Dollar” in honor of the legend’s career and his influence on country music.
The stars brought the heat on the stage
Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Kellie Pickler, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Blake Shelton, Florida Georgia Line, Charles Eston and so many other stars were there, and Oh my God! It was amazing! Everybody looked astonishing and I saw so many amazing performances on the stage.
Miranda Lambert performed a hot version of the song “Pink Sunglasses”. The blonde was beautiful on the stage in a black dress and a colorful makeup. The America’s sweetheart and the CMT’s favorite, Carrie Underwood, won an awards, making history with 17 awards over the years. You can check out Miranda Lambert’s performance right here.
Hollywood had fun too
Ashton Kutcher was on the stage as a presenter, Nicole Kidman supported Keith Urban, and she looked great in a black dress, Jada Pinkett-Smith was a presenter, going on the stage in a beautiful pink dress and Katherine Heigl brightened the red carpet in a chiffon dress.
Crazy collaborations night
CMT is known for creating fascinating shows on the stage, so we had an amazing show this year too. Among all the great performances, I also witnessed great collaborations. Peter Frampton sang with Brothers Osborne, Florida Georgia Line performed on the rooftop with The Chainsmokers “Last Day Alive”. Luke Bryan and Jason Derulo performed the version of “Want to Want Me,” with an astonishing version of Bryan’s song “Strip It Down,” a performance where Bryan played on the piano. And in the final performance I heard Lady Antebellum with the song “Earth Wind and Fire”.
I can’t forget about the funny moments with Charles Eston! He kind of roasted the celebrities and he was hilarious, I really enjoyed the moments and no one can watch that without laughing. I can only say that CMT Awards rightfully deserve the audience and its reputation as one the most important awards in country music. I totally enjoy watching the arrival of the stars at the CMT, to their amazing performances on the stage and the emotions of winning an award!
