The 45th Annual CMA Awards were Wednesday Night and it was a big party from the get go with Blake Shelton and Kenny Loggins opening the show with “Footloose”.

The opening monologue with hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood was absolutely hilarious. Poking fun of Hank Williams Jr, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw’s new Barbie Dolls and Kim Kardashian’s divorce.

There was plenty of other great performances. Some of the highlights include Miranda Lambert singing “Baggage Claim”, The Zac Brown Band were joined by Gregg Allmann to sing the Ray Charles Classic “Georgia On My Mind”,  Eric Church rocked his current single “Drink in My Hand”, Lionel Richie singing some of his classics with Little Big Town, Darius Rucker and Rascal Flatts, Brad and Carrie singing “Remind Me” and a great tribute to Glen Campbell by Vince Gill, Keith Urban and Brad Paisley.

Of course there were plenty of awards handed out, here is the complete list of winners:

Entertainer Of The Year–Taylor Swift

Male Vocalist Of The Year–Blake Shelton

Female Vocalist Of The Year–Miranda Lambert

Vocal Group Of The Year–Lady Antebellum

Vocal Duo Of The Year–Sugarland

I have to say I didn’t do too bad with my predictions that I made a few months back, maybe I should go and play the lottery now. Congrats to all the winners. Unfortunately our own Kevin Richards didn’t win, but there’s always next year!
