Little Big Town Motorboat thru the CMA’s

Little Big Town rode their motorboating anthem “Pontoon” to the awards stage at last night’s Country Music Association Awards winning two awards which also happened to be their first wins at this show to date. They also performed that ridiculously addictive song and were clearly the night’s happiest winners. They weren’t the biggest winner though as that title went to Blake Shelton who picked up three awards including Entertainer of the Year for the second consecutive year and Best Song for “Over You” which he shared with his wife, the song’s co-writer, Miranda Lambert. Lambert also won Female Vocalist again…. One big surprise was Hunter Hayes picking up the New Artist award, but I say he deserved it and he gave a winning performance of his smash “Wanted”. Other performers included the Zac Brown Band, winner Eric Church, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Faith Hill and a brilliant duet from Kelly Clarkson and Vince Gill which was easily the night’s best vocal. Also performing were the night’s hysterical hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley whose opening monologue was a riot not to mention had them dancing “Gangam Style”…. For more on the show, head to the CMA site here and check out all the winners below.
