ROASTED POLITICIANS fitting demi pointe shoes. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton both came in for some gentle jokes. Co-hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood pulled out a duffel bag they called a “basket of deplorables,” which Clinton used to describe some Trump supporters. (Inside was “camo and ammo”). Paisley, meanwhile, channeled Trump when he announced: “This show is rigged!” He said he’d accept the results — only if he won, though he wasn’t nominated for any awards — and referred to his co-host as a “nasty woman” and “crooked Carrie.” Later, he jokingly called Jason Aldean and Brooks & Dunn “bad hombres.” None of the presenters or performers got in on the act, avoiding any politics just days before the election..
BIRTHDAY OVERSHADOWED. The CMAs may have been celebrating their golden anniversary but the awards took place in the national shadow of an even more special event — Game 7 of the World Series, pitting the Cleveland Indians, who last won the Fall Classic in 1948, and the Chicago Cubs, who famously hadn’t won the World Series since 1908. The show was more than half over by the time presenter ESPN broadcaster Kirk Herbstreit made the first on-air reference to the other big show — informing the audience that the Cubs were up in the fifth inning fitting demi pointe shoes. Later, Vince Gill said the Cubs were up 6-3. The CMAs ended with the game in the eighth inning, meaning a whole lot of country stars probably pulled out their phones as soon as Garth Brooks won the top award and the hosts waved goodbye..
PRODUCTION VALUES. The CMAs pulled out all the stops to make their birthday look elegant fitting demi pointe shoes. Sometimes, it worked well, as when Tim McGraw’s “Humble and Kind” was accompanied by a montage of diverse American faces and when Kelsea Ballerini performed her hit “Peter Pan” in front of two dancers who did an elegant ballet combining muscular aerial work on wires. But sometimes it crashed, as when Little Big Town performed “Better Man” in what looked like a hay field with a wind machine on full force. It was poorly lit, the well-dressed group seemed uncomfortable and it looked like they were performing in truck exhaust..
HELLO, DOLLY. No matter who was going to be the big winner, it was always going to be Dolly Parton’s night and the CMAs did this beloved genre-breaking performer proud. Some of the most skillful and genuine female singers in the genre — Reba, Jennifer Nettles, Carrie Underwood, Martina McBride and Kacey Musgraves — stood facing the country icon and sang some of her hits like “9 to 5” and “Jolene” in a stunning serenade fitting demi pointe shoes. Then she was presented with the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award and quipped, “This is an absolute high for me.” The fact that her acceptance speech was rushed was the only strange note. Chris Stapleton, who won the following award, like a gentleman, offered to give her some of his time..
