It was an incredible night of performances at the 54th annual CMA Awards on Wednesday, November 11th! I was a huge fan of all of it! It was night to see our favorites performing onstage once again, even if it was on TV and I as sitting at home in my boxers eating chips & salsa.
Here were some of my favorite performances:
Carly Pearce, Charles Kelley – “I Hope You’re Happy Now”
Charles stepped right in for Lee Brice, who tested positive for COVID19 prior to the awards show, and he killed it!
Jon Pardi – “Pickup Man” Joe Diffie Tribute
I loved every second of this! I’m a huge fan of Joe Diffie’s music and it was great to see Jon Pardi and his band look like they were in Diffie’s band back in 1992. Plus, I really want to best friends with Jon Pardi.
Luke Combs – “Cold As You”
Luke Combs is my favorite artist right now and I’m pretty certain if he recorded, “Itsy Bitsy Spider”, it would go all the way to #1 and sell a billion copies.
Chris Stapleton – “Starting Over”
This guy has the best voice in Country Music and it is not even close. I love the song we play on the radio, but I love the single microphone, one guitar, stripped down version of it, too.
