Last night I watched the CMT Awards and live Tweeted with some of our great listeners and here are some of the observations that I made -

Kristen Bell did a great job hosting – but I think they spent too much time talking about whether or not she needed a co-host – The answer is no. Just host the show.

She declared it “ladies night” and it was – the women brought the house down – too bad they can’t get on the charts!

A lot of people online were concerned about the pop/rock/rap situation again – including the Jason Durelo, Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan performance…

Is Country Music still Country?  If not, then what?

And the lzzy Hale, Eric Church performance was loud.

But I think everyone loved the Jennifer Nettles/John Legend performance. It was epic.  A great song knows no genre.

They did a nice tribute to Alan Jackson who won the first ever “impact award” with Kacey Musgraves and Lee Ann Womack but it was a little short. – he brought his wife on stage with him, so sweet.

Brantley Gilbert did a back flip during bottoms up, and personally I thought his lack of a real shirt was tacky.

LITTLE BIG TOWN'S performance of "Day Drinking" . . . featured streams of paint powder splattered the entire band from head to toe.  It was pretty cool.

Jason Aldean brought his one night stand turned girlfriend Brittany Kerr and the two got a lot of camera time

Dierks Bentley walked the red carpet dressed like a pilot to promote drunk on a plane, and the performance didn’t disappoint.  I think the flight attendants prancing around was a bit much.

Tyler Farr tanked his performance of redneck crazy – bad.

But Miranda and Carrie hit it out of the park with something bad and redeemed themselves after the Billboard blunder.
