CMA Awards

The 44th Annual Country Music Association awards were presented last night, November 10th, in Nashville, TN. The show had some great musical moments, as well as few flops.

Reba McEntire performed her newest single, the 2008 Beyonce song "If I Were A Boy," which came across like a hot mess! Some other not so "great" performances were by Kenny Chesney, and the opening song by Carrie Underwood, which was barely audible.

The big winners of the night were Miranda Lambert, who won three awards including Female Vocalist, Best Album for "Revolution," and best single record for "The House That Built Me."

The complete list of winners are:
Best Song: "Need You Now" by Lady Antebellum
Best Single Record: "The House That Built Me" by Miranda Lambert
Best New Artist: The Zac Brown Band
Best Vocal Group: Lady Antebellum
Best Vocal Duo: Sugarland
Best Album: "Revolution" by Miranda Lambert
Best Male Vocalist: Blake Shelton
Best Female Vocalist: Miranda Lambert
Entertainer of the Year: Brad Paisley
Vocal Event: "Hillbilly Bone" by Blake Shelton & Trace Adkins

The show was hosted by Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley, who did a wonderful job. Their comedic timing was spot on.
