As a presenter at Wednesday night’s Country Music Awards,Kellie Pickler, for the first time, dropped the blonde and went reddish-brown . Shockingly, she looks good though I expect she’ll go back to blond soon enough. She also fills out her dress nicely, of course.
Later in the show, Randy Houser’s little son looked peachy keen happy sitting next to Pickler. The cutesy tot even gave her very presence a thumbs up. Good taste, young tyke!
Taylor Swift broke Carrie Underwood’s three-year stranglehold on Female Vocalist of the Year.
Underwood sang “Cowboy Casanova” in a questionable pink gown and spangly short shorts. But she manages to pull it off.
As host, she doesn’t have the comic chops of Brad Paisley, her co host, but the pair do have chemistry, which is why the CMAs brought them back. She did do the song parodies with aplomb, even the lame “Swife Flu” song in place of LeAnn Rimes’ “Blue.”
The other “Idol” connection is Daughtry dueting with Vince Gill with acoustic guitars for a ballad called ‘Tennessee Line.” I like this song a lot more than most of Daughtry’s rock-pop singles.
