2010 Academy of Country Music Awards

Anyone that knows me, knows that I love country music. The 2010 Academy of Country Music Awards were last night so I thought it would be fitting if I were to give my opinion on what happened throughout the night.

Most all of the images below are from www.gettyimages.com

I will start with Best Dressed.

I thought Carrie Underwood looked fabulous all night. She is such a classy young lady.

Hilary Scott of Lady Antebellum looked fabulous in this pink dress. She is a gorgeous girl as well.

A newcomer to the country scene, Laura Bell Bundy, stole the orange carpet with this amazing slit dress.

Eddie Montgomery of Montgomery Gentry looked fabulous in this cross blazer. I am a sucker for crosses so this blazer definitely caught my eye. Troy Gentry was pretty good looking too! I loved his suit.

Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland looked stunning in this dress. I love the necklaces that was paired the dress. Such a modern twist to a timeless dress.

Julianne Hough looked amazing in this white dress. I love this dress and her hair!

Finally, Reba McEntire was gorgeous as always. Although, I am not a huge fan of this dress, she looked classy all night long.


I loved Carrie Underwood's performance of "Temporary Home". I loved the simplicity of the set for the song too.

Reba McEntire almost brought tears to my eyes during her performance of "I Keep on Loving You". I never really listened to the words of the song until last night. I love how they showed pictures of some of country music's greatest couples during this song including, Johnny and June Cash, Reba and her husband, Tim and Faith, Alan and Denise Jackson and so on.

Finally, Brooks & Dunn and their Last.ACM.Performance.As.A.Duo.EVER. I cried. It was a sad few moments. I grew up listening to Brooks & Dunn. They are an amazing duo and I hate to see that come to an end after 20 years. They definitely left their mark on country music. I thought it was really neat how the ACM peeps let America vote on which song they would sing at their final performance. They did an awesome job and received a well-deserved standing ovation.

Other random thoughts from the night

I had to mute the TV during Taylor Swift's performance. That poor child cannot carry a tune in a bucket. I know I shouldn't judge because well...I can't sing either but she is downright horrible and awful to listen too. Her 15 minutes were up 30 minutes ago!

The gentlemen of Montgomery Gentry received The Home Depot Humanitarian Award. Very well-deserved. It is a humbling experience when two grown men cry during their acceptance speech. Congratulations guys...You deserved it.

I love Toby Keith and his performance last night was phenomenal. He has so much heart and always put 110% into everything he does. I wish he would have shaved a little though. He was looking a little scruffy.

I think the show was great. I wish they would give more awards as opposed to all the performances but overall I agree with all the winners from the evening. Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum stole the show with all of their awards, but they were deserved and I couldn't have agreed more.
