sparkle, glitz, and spandex

I love pretty much any country music awards show.  They are one of the most fabulous things ever.  I especially love Reba.  She's always so happy for everybody and gets teary eyed at least once.  It's great.  Her music isn't my favorite but she seems like such a nice person.  Anyway.  I always have a running commentary during any awards show, I'm sure my husband loves it.  Awards time is probably a time it would be good to have a female friend living near by to greater appreciate my fashion opinions and betting on who is going to win.

The Band Perry.  What the heck.  Why did they win so many things?  They are terrible!  I mean they sound horrible.  Their music makes my ears sad.  And their hair.  I'm just perplexed.  It looks straight out of the 80s but in a way that wasn't even fashionable in the 80s.  I just don't get it.  Ug.  Come on people.

Taylor Swift.  Oh Taylor Swift.  I accidentally used her as an example of a good famous person role model the other day.  I may not love her music but at least she doesn't act like a total moron like some people do.  And then there was the first year she won female vocalist or something and the cameraman showed Faith Hill going "What the f*@&"  That was amazing.  I was disappointed in her song this year.  It wasn't nearly as dramatic as her performances usually are.  

Brad and Carrie.  I love them so much.  I want to hang out with both of them.  Carrie Underwood always has the best hair.  I wish her stylist would come do my hair just once.  And her clothes are usually super cute.  This year they were a little out there but I guess if you're that skinny and that famous you can wear whatever you want.  And then Brad Paisley.  The black camo suit jacket.  Amazing.  It could have only been made better with some sequins.  I love Brad Paisley but you can totally see the Little Jimmy Dickens influence.  Also, I love Little Jimmy Dickens.  I was lucky enough to be at the Opry for his 60th anniversary.  It was amazing.

Luke Bryan.  Luke where did you get those very tight sparkly pants?  I'm a little afraid they came from the women's section of some store.  And those dancers....  There are no words.

And then there's Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert.  Love love love both of them.  I totally made my husband watch the opening Footloose at least twice.  So great.  But poor Miranda's dress.  Adorable but it looked like it might fall off.  I did love that they got male and female entertainer of the year.  They are the cutest!

Thompson Square.  Okay, even their name is adorable.  I think they are so cute!  They are both gorgeous.  However, when they had them on camera for duo of the year (I think) the camera was totally focused on whoever was in front of them.  I wasn't paying enough attention to realize Thompson Square was actually behind these people and all I could think about was how freaky Keifer's hair was.  Or the guy I thought was Keifer.  He had these big floppy weird curls.  I seriously ran the show back like three times freaking out over his hair.  Insane.  I was glad when I realized what was going on.  Whew!  And that they kissed at the end of their song.  Adorable!  Loved it.
