Some of my favorite moments from the Academy of Country Music Awards last night. Let me clarify that Taylor Swift is never one of my favorite moments- everything she does makes me eye roll and cringe- but she does know how to wear a dress, I’ll give her that, and it was probably my favorite of the night.
My other favorite look was Carrie Underwood’s during her “Black Cadillac” performance. Smashing! She’s so gorgeous, it kills me, and I love seeing which shoes she’ll wear next. It’s all about the shoes, you know.
One of the main reasons I love country so much is because of the people. The camaraderie is palpable, and the relationships seem so genuine. There is real support there, and it helps that the music just makes you feel good. (Listen to “Pontoon” by Little Big Town. You’ll get it.) So I was incredibly happy to see how truly grateful Luke Bryan was when he accepted his big award for Entertainer of the Year. (Let’s be real, he won because he can wear a pair of tight jeans like nothing we’ve ever seen…) I swear, in any other industry, they’d be like, of course I got this, I’m awesome and you should worship me more (read: Anne Hathaway, Kanye West). But not here. Like Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, too, was totally humbled and sweet, and I want to be her friend.
I really do think we’d be great friends.
