Last night was the CMA Awards, a ceremony that honors and celebrates the stars of country music.
The event was filled with memorable moments, as some of our favorite musicians and artists were awarded for their amazing work. In addition to the awards, there were some spell-binding performances.
One in particular has people talking all over the country.
From Country Music Nation:
Wearing a magnificent white gown, Underwood’s voice rang throughout Bridgestone Arena as she sang the opening lines of the beloved hymn, “Softly and Tenderly.”

During the performance, images of artists, musicians, and musical figures that have passed away in the past year flashed on a screen behind Underwood…
At the end of the performance, Underwood found herself struggling to sing as images of the Route 91 shooting victims appeared on the screen. We’re sure there wasn’t a dry eye in the room at that moment…

The night wasn’t all hope and comfort, though. Like most in the entertainment industry, the liberals had to drag politics into the night, attacking the President of the United States.
From Fox News:
The stars commented on the recent controversy surrounding the CMAs press guidelines, noting that the show is supposed to be free of politics. Paisley lamented not being able to sing topical songs such as, “Way Down Yonder on the Scaramucci,” “Hold Me Closer Bernie Sanders,” “Harper Valley DNC” and “Stand by Your Manafort.”
Paisley then strummed a guitar and sung a parody of Underwood’s “Before He Cheats” with lyrics aimed at President Trump.
“Right now he’s probably in his PJs, watching cable news, reaching for his cell phone,” Paisley sung.
Underwood joined in, “It’s fun to watch it that’s for sure, till little ‘Rocket Man’ starts a nuclear war. Maybe next time he’ll think before he tweets.”
It’s clear that, while the organizers of the show wanted to honor the victims and make the night about healing and hope, the liberals in the crowd could not. Why ruin a special night for Americans and country music fans by insulting the man they elected?
This is another sign of how Hollywood, music, and the entertainment industry is completely out of touch with the rest of the country. Their arrogance and moral bankruptcy is only going to drive fans away. Much like it’s been for the NFL.
Yet another wonderful night marred by their childishness and pettiness.
