Academy of Country Music Awards ’13

Luuuuke!  He did it!  Luke Bryan, one of my favorite country cuties, won ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR at last night’s ACM Awards in Las Vegas.  I think everyone was surprised.  And why have I not seen him live in concert yet?  I must remedy that ASAP.

Luke was also the co-host of the evening with his good buddy, Blake Shelton.

They did a great job, but I was too distracted by Luke’s black jeans and white teeth.  He really should do an Italian salad dressing commercial.  Right? It would be HUGE!

Hee.  Luke was so emotional when he won the big prize that he was choking back tears.  He was staring at his wife in the audience and it was adorable.  And wedding rings are always sexy.  He’s just going to get more popular now, so I might have some trouble getting those concert tickets.

My girl Taylor did not win any awards, but she looked gorgeous as usual in some awesome gown changes. My favorite was the one she wore when she sang her brand new duet with Tim McGraw called “Highway Don’t Care.”  Keith Urban also plays guitar on the single.  It’s a great song and Tim can never do wrong in my book either.  He looks yummy in that gray suit.

Miranda Lambert was the big winner last night with three ACMs and she is always so sweet and sincere when she accepts any award. She deserves all the success. The song she cowrote with hubbie Blake Shelton, “Over You,” is just heartbreaking. And I was excited to see my man John Mayer make an appearance with Brad Paisley.  He played guitar and sang a little bit.  It’s one of the first times we’ve heard him since his throat surgery last year.  I loved his new neck jewelry and I was happy to see him without his signature hat.  Lookin’ good, JM!

Finally, props to Hunter Hayes who is becoming the Justin Bieber of the country world.  Well, Justin Bieber without the nudity and club hopping. Hunter has a huge hit with “Wanted” right now and he introduced us to his new song, “I Want Crazy” and then sang along with R&B icon Stevie Wonder on “Sir Duke.”  He’s going to be the one to watch at next year’s award show, for sure.
