Jason Aldean, Taylor Swift and the Band Perry reign at a messy CMA Awards

Taylor Swift surprised last night on the CMA Awards. No, she didn’t actually sing good live~ in fact, she was terrible. However, she surprisingly won Entertainer of the Year for a second time over a field of boys, and after she had lost in all her other categories. In fact, it was a surprising show because of just how bad it was. Or I should say how bad the performances were. Some were just boring (The Band Perry) while others were awful (Swift and a shocking flat and pitchy Sara Evans and Faith Hill) and the less said about Blake Shelton’s disastrous “Footloose” show opener (featuring a brief odd cameo by Kenny Loggins), the better. Plus, the direction of the show and the sound mixing were off all night… On the bright side, hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood were adorable and they sang a lovely duet. The other highlight was a performance by winners Sugarland with Matt Nathanson on their song “Run”. Now, that’s how you sing people!
Check out all the winners below led by The Band Perry and Jason Aldean with two apiece and for more on the show, head to the CMA website here. (And a special shout out to my Kelly Clarkson who picked up her first CMA Award, becoming the second former American Idol to do so after Underwood’s multiple wins, for Vocal Event of the Year with Aldean).
